There is something about Fridays that just makes me jump with joy. The prospect of two whole days ahead of me to stitch and relax makes me feel happy. Whether it is a date with my husband (usually dinner and a movie) or a whole evening cuddled up at home with my stitching, I just love it !! It is cold and snowy in Colorado today, so it is going to be home in front of the TV stitching and that suits me just fine :-). I am half way through La-D-Da's "Because Nice Matters;" this is an old chart I have had and finally decided to stitch it. I have changed the colors and I am stitching it on 35ct. I hope to finish it this weekend. I am not sure yet if I will frame it or if I will finish it some other way. More to come on this. You all have a great weekend and......keep stitching !!

SGR Sewing Box

I finished the sewing box designed by Janice Wood for the Sampler Guild of the Rockies. The box is from IKEA and Janice designed a pattern to fit perfectly in it. I used an antiquing medium to make the box look a bit aged and old. I love it !!!

Esta es una caja de costura que fue diseñada por Janice Wood, un miembro de nuestro grupo de punto de cruz. La caja es de IKEA y esta envejecida con Betun de Judea para darle un aspecto mas antiguo.

My Recently Finished Project

Well, it is late at night and I have just figured out how to add a picture to a post. This was a long, relaxing weekend. I must confess that I have not stitched anything for Valentine's Day, but here is this cute pillow I just finished to give as a gift. It was fun to stitch. It made me like pink again :-)

Este es un cojin decorativo que acabo de terminar. Es para un regalo y creo que es precioso.
