Kids are gone!

It's spring break for us, and the kids decided they needed to stay at Mamaw's. (she's about 1 1/2 hrs from us) So they've been there since Monday night. That has left me all day Tues, Wed, Thurs for stuff like stitching! I did squeeze in a trip to the gym today! Got a call from my youngest today that he wanted to come home... we were getting ready to go get him and he changed his mind! So my last day of goofing off is tomorrow!

I finished stitching an over-one needlebook! It's on yellow fabric, with The Dye is Cast dark blue thread called Night Sky! I love it! But it took way more thread than I thought! There are a few other parts to it, but if I can't get more thread I'll have to skip that part! I think I have a little more of the fabric.. I need to check my stash pile tomorrow.

Back in Sept. I ordered a French pattern and it all fits on a tray. Well I have done all the sewing, everything needed backing... and so tomorrow I'm going to put it all together. I need to add a fabric border and attach all the little pieces to the background stitched piece. I can't wait to show you, it's gonna be cute! :)

Isn't it amazing how much stitching one can do when the little ones are gone. I LOVE your stitching in the tray. That is simply beautiful. Did you order it from Europe? I am very interested in it.

well that's not my stitching, that's her sample!

At the time, I just emailed her at her blog and ordered it that way. But now I see it's in that online store, so I'm not sure if she still does it privately! She has some cool stuff!
