I just finished stitching "A Primitive Stocking" by Carriage House Samplings.
I thought it might take me a while to finish the stitching on this but it was a fast stitch! Everynight when I sat down to work on this I would say "one more letter and I'll go to bed, ok one more and I'll go to bed!"
There are only 5 colors of floss used and mine is a little shorter than the pattern - about 2 inches. The fabric I used wasn't as long as what the directions called for.
Since I'm done with the pattern, I'd like to pass it along to someone else who would like to stitch this design. If you leave me a comment on this post, I'll draw a name for the pattern on Sunday night.
Last weekend we took a road trip to SE Wisconsin to visit my sister & her family. While we were there we took a tour of The University of Wisconsin - Whitewater. At the moment it's at the top of the list of potential colleges for our daughter.
My husband and I both went to a small private liberal arts college - 1,000 students. UWW is slightly different - 11,000 students. We both were very impressed.
Had to buy everyone a t-shirt - our 10 year old is very happy with his - on the back it says "U-DUB DUB". He thought that was quite funny!
My sister and I took her 3 and 2 of my 3 for a bike ride in a Waukesha park. This bike is NOT as easy as it looks....
There were 4 of us pedaling, but it was a work-out - especially when we were going up hill. We were laughing so hard we weren't sure we could keep going. I had the "baby" - she's 1 1/2years old on my lap while I was trying to pedal. I had to keep on my 10 year old - telling him he was a slacker and he needed to work a little harder!
Hope you are having a good week. ~Ann
