Finished an Old Finish

Two weeks ago my Mum gave back to me an old piece I had stitched (actually it was my second finish). I gave it to her years ago to turn it into a pillow for me. She never got around to it. I guess now that I've got some sewing skills and my own machine she felt I could do it myself. So when I got home from work today I was inspired to finish it!

SBQ time!

Q : If you could only stitch one more piece what would it be and why?


A : Enchantment of Winter by Terrance Nolan, because my Mum said my Dad really admired a model he saw of it years ago... he's been to Russia. Its also not like my Dad to pay attention to things like that.


Well on the personal stitching side, I'm plodding along very slowly with the outlines on my Neighbourhood RR. I just want to get that done... its sooo boring!

I'm glad this is a short week for us Canadians (yesterday was a statutory holiday for us), I'm realy looking forward to Friday. After work I'm hopping in my car and I'm going to visit with Kathy, with a Saturday visit with Ann. I love going down to visit Kathy and Ann!

Your pillow turned out very pretty, and all the colors are perfect for the spring time. I wasn't familiar with Enchantment of Winter so did a search, it's beautiful. It would be stunning done up.

Have fun on your visit with Kathy and Ann. Our holiday here is this coming week, so I'll have Monday off to get my three day holiday, I'm so looking forward to no work tomorrow.
