Last Monday, one of my kids stayed home sick from school. So what is any self respecting stitcher to do when her child is sleeping? Stitch!! I finished page 23 Monday night. Then there was that book that caught my attention and kept me from stitching a couple of days or I would have finished page 24 earlier. Here's page 23. I've personalized it with my name and the year started and finished.
I started building a doll bed for my niece in November. Then Dad died so I really had no interest in it for a bit. Friday, my MIL and SIL came to visit so finishing became a priority so I could send it back with them. It was just a matter of screwing some things together, cutting and sewing some fabric to go around some foam and lots and lots of blanket stitch around some fleece. I ended up with a fairly large piece after I cut the fleece for the bed, so I stitched around the larger piece to so Eden would have a blanket that matched her doll bed. Here's the result. Not too bad if I do say so myself!
Once I finally had a chance to sit down with my stitching, I was not too far off from finishing 1900 ABC. So just after midnight, I was able to take it off the q-snaps for the last time.
Yes, I actually had two finishes yesterday.
After a quick iron, here's the result. I absolutely love how it turned out!
