Moving Right AlongI took a few days off last week just cuz I could and it was nice to just kick back and not worry about things. Okay,okay I still worried...what can I say I'm a masochist. ;)
But it did give me time to work on my stitching and of course Greg just kept plugging right along on his.
This is going fairly fast, I did have to rip out the last bike wheel I stitched cuz I got in totally the wrong spot. But otherwise it's been a fun project and easy. The only thing that's a bit of a challenge are the colors. This is meant to be a fairly bland picture and the recommended fabric is white. If you know me at all, you know that I HATE stitching on white. So I chose a fabric that I thought would give this an "antique" look. The problem is that some of the colors fade away a bit on it. So I've had to make some minor changes to accommodate this. All in all though it's looking good!
Here are the framed versions of my "Mom" and Greg's "Flag":
Greg is still working away on Evie. She is one weird chick though. In person it feels like the eyes follow you. It's kinda disturbing. The pictures don't do this one justice at all.
She's got some wild hair going on too. LOL
And lastly! Our 4 year anniversary was July 31 and here is what Greg gave me! He's so sweet!!
These are from Lori Mitchell and I had been wanting them for a long while. The perfect anniversary gift for me. :D The groom looks like he's been out on a bender and is still a bit tipsy. LOL
Well it's still hot here and school starts soon, which will be weird, but it's been a nice summer.
Hope all is well with all of you!
