Happy Dance Sulphurs is Finished



How was everyone's Easter? I went to my parents house after church. We had a good church program yesterday. There was a lot of music. My mom and I watched Easter Parade.

I put in the last stitches of Sulphurs this morning. All that frogging I had to do, I still enjoyed the piece but was happy to have it done. This will go to a young girl at Love Quilts who chose Butterflies and flowers for her quilt. I can't wait to see pictures of that quilt. This is #20 of the 50 challenge. Yes I'm still in it. How many other people are in it? Only on me I won't reach 50 within a year I know that.

My parents house has sold. They will be having the closing soon. They do have their apartment so anytime after the closing they can move in. I'm going to be going over there a lot to help mom pack, and decide what is going to the apartment and what is not. Including all the CS pictures I did for them and my brother. Not all of them are going to be able to go. I said if any of the kids want them, they could have them.

Today I got a piece back from the framers that turned out beautiful. I love it. So I'm' posting a picture of that also.

Well until next time Happy Stitching!

Congrats Barb! It's beautiful! I'm on the 50 challenge. For how much longer, I don't know. I'm getting awfully close to falling off the wagon ;o)

Whoever did your framing did a lovely job! It really bring out the colors in that piece.
