My oldest sister, Patricia, and I have also been mending fences. And she mailed to me a cookbook and some nicotine patches and lozenges. I am so grateful for her support in Jay's and my challenge to quit smoking. She quit February 26th I think.
I finished the Hunting Island Lighthouse for her and mom is going to frame it. It is the first project that I started and finished in a timely manner in a long long time. I am so proud of myself for this project and I really hope she likes it. I still need to wash and press it. I just love lighthouses and hope to stitch some more.
For those who missed my last couple of posts, I have been fascinated with cats and animals. Here are two of the Lesley Anne Ivory Cats for the signature series 'Designs for the Needle'. I found them on ebay and I have two more. I will begin separating the floss for this first one and instead of stitching it on 14ct material I will be stitching it on 28ct mushroom evenweave. I am very excited about this series.
I am not sure if I posted this finish, but here are the suited cards for the Texas Holdem patterns I am stitching from 'Ante Up!' I have been working these since the first of the year. They are stitched on 16ct white aida and I will be making the whole thing into a wall hanging.
Miss Tripp loves to get into everything and she keeps me company. I love her.
