A finish At Last!

I think I am still on holidays. It has been a very quiet week since we got home. I was bogged down with a head cold which I did not want to share and I had lots to do at home so I just stayed in. I am now ready to re-join the word and our regular stitching Thursdays and Fridays will pick up again this week.

This last week I did finally get back at some stitching. I am planning to offer a course on waste canvas this spring and to that end I stitched up this Sue Hillis design on a sweatshirt. Here is Kasey modelling it.

I am also planning to offer a course on "stitching on evenweave" or "moving on to linen" with this Rosewood Manor design which will be made up into a clutch purse. So far it is a very enjoyable stitch.

This is what I worked on in Florida. Another piece that I am enjoying..Long Dog's "Froth and Bubble"

And I must show off my friend Sharon's fnished "Siam Fusion"

HAHAHA!! I love the sweatshirt! I think I should have one for my boys at my house...Kasey looks pretty handsome there.
Sorry you haven't been feeling well, seems like everyone has been down and out for a spell this winter with something.
I'm hoping to make it this weekend at some point, Curt is working so I have to see if I can get at least one of the boys off to somewhere for some time.

Looking forward to seeing all the new stuff and adding to my stash. Sharon's Siam fusion is really lovely. Lots of work in it, but well worth it.

All of your projects look wonderful. I love the colors in Froth and Bubble.

Hope you can send that cold on its way soon. Froth and Bubbles is looking great. Sounds like you had a great time at the market, I am jealous ;) and would love to go.
