Hee hee ... I was under very firm instructions from Kath on Saturday morning to come home, take a picture of my newly picked up and framed Christmas Elf and put it on my blog so Katrina could see it too. Um, it's Monday morning now - sorry Kath and Katrina!
Here she is -
Thank you SO much, again, Kath and Katrina - I love her to bits :D
and what have I been doing instead of posting here? Why, stitching of course! Another stitching board I am on is having a stitch-a-thon this week, so I figured what an opportunity, I need to mega-stitch Apache Wedding anyway, why not count while I'm doing it for a bit of fun ... and there is nothing like my quiet competitive streak to be spurred into action to really get me going ;)
... over 2000 stitches later (counting crosses as one, and each backstitch as one) ... here is another update on it -
I'm hoping to finish the bottom part this week - and then have most of next week to finish up the words and right-hand side.
Now a question - along the bottom it says "Apache Wedding Blessing" ... do you think I should replace those words with "John and Georgina, 18 February 2006" ... or leave the Apache Wedding Blessing there and put the John and Georgina along the very bottom of the sampler?
On to today ... we are going to take the kids and bike down to the park ... they need to get out, and I've had fun stitching in the afternoons, but it's definitely time to do the good parenting thing! LOL
and lastly Happy Anniversay to DH and I (well, two days ago - but near enough!) ... 17 years - doesn't that make me sound old? LOL
