my current project


I actually got the computer again this weekend, with one kid off on a camping trip and the other doing homework : ) This is what I am working on currently, Maude Eloise by Blackbird Designs, using a mixture of Weeks and DMC on linen which I dyed a light tan color
(you can click on the picture to biggify). I have had this in my stash for a few years at least--no idea why I let it sit so long, as I am thoroughly enjoying it! As a reformed quilter, I especially like the quilt stars and flowers along the top and bottom. I stitched my "real" name (that is, the one I was born with, not my married name) on the roof. The willow tree reminded me of the huge one that stood in the back yard of the house where I grew up. I still have pictures somewhere of my brother climbing on it after it blew over during a storm.
Don't forget about my giveaway (previous post). I am putting M.E. away for awhile to stitch something for said giveaway. Until next time...
