The Next Birth Announcement Milestone.

I have been the worst blogger ever!  If I've not been busy with end of school year stuff I've been madly stitching to have this done before I head down to the Charleston, S.C. area the last week of July!  I look forward to meeting Zachary. 

As usual I severely underestimate how long something is going to take me to stitch... Especially as this is a Teresa Wentzler!

Just this morning, I finished the border, except for the beads!  Those come last of course!

Today I move onto the center of the design, all just straight backstitching. Well for a TW it is.

PhotoHunt - Skies

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "skies"

The view from the mountains in the Gatineau Park allow for great "big sky" views on a clear sunny fall day!

Birth Announcement Milestones

I've not had much blogging mojo lately. I have been stitching though. 

A week ago, I finished all the cross stitch on Birth Announcement.

Last night I finished the las of the 116 eyelets in the border!  There are still a lot of backstitch to go, name and date to add, beads and lazy daisies to go.
