I hope all of you have had a Blessed Sunday and enjoyed your time with stitching or something else you love doing. Me.....stitching!
I took Robin's advice about the wooden embroidery frames for Betsy's Tart and it turned out really cute. I had never finished something this way so I added some touches of my own. I added a backing which I'm not sure you are suppose to do but to me it just gives it a more "finished" look. Also, I stained the hoop walnut and I love it.
She's sitting in my china/crystal cabinet only because the hanger that I had attached left loose so I must reattach it then I can hang it where I want. I'm thinking kitchen.
Then the other day I received a package in the mail from my sweet friend Rhonda. I had no idea what it was and wow was I surprised when I opened it. She sent me an absolutely beautiful windchime in remembrance of my brother, Richard. I purchased a wrought iron hanger at Lowe's and DH hung it for me today.
I had him hang it outside my kitchen window that's over my sink so that I can hear the beautiful chimes and look at it. I didn't want it out in the elements so it's nicely protected on the front porch. Thank you Rhonda....every time I look at it I'll think of my brother and the dear friend who sent it to me.
That's all from this part of the world. I hope everything is in top shape in your corner.
