A couple finishes



My first finish for the year was Lizzie Kate Dogs Leave Paw Prints on your Heart. I stitched it on 14 count aida and made it into a flatfold. It was a gift for my friend in Texas. I "stole" Kathy's idea and in the back I made a frame so she can put a picture of Zoey in the frame. I got the fabric at Walmart in Cove Copperas. It was the only Walmart in the area that still had fabric. Even my store doesnt carry it and now I am stuck with JoAnne's. I dont mind JoAnnes but it is just more expensive.
I stitched Little House Needleworks Fa La La in Texas. The picture is not so good. I added beads to the coat's buttons and to the snowflakes. I have to stitch the next one by this Sunday. I still have to make it into an ornament and I got the perfect fabric for it. I just have to go find it because my brother moved my things while I was gone.

While I was in Texas, my leg reopened up. So I am back to elevating and going to the wound care center every week again. But the wound is not so bad as before and should be healed in time for spring. My friend from Florida is coming to Connecticut in June. Unfortunely, he is coming the week the ILCSing is having their retreat. Since I dont see my friend too often, I wont be going to St. Louis this year. My friend is taking me to see Mary Poppins on Broadway in New York City that week. I am so looking forward towards to the see the musical. I already brought the cd and been playing so I can get to know the songs.

I still have some catching up to do still. Hopefully I will be posting again soon, with my February ornament and a snowman.

Happy Stitching!

I have Pawprints in my stash-to-do pile. It's a neat idea for a photo on the back. How did you do that?
