Quick Post on a Sunday...........

Well I'm coming off a very busy week with visits from both my daughters, son-in-law, grand kids, and parents. The grand kids stayed for almost a week along with their Aunt Jess. We hung out a lot at the house just playing with them, due to the heat, but we did manage to squeeze in a couple visits to a pool, ice cream forays, trampoline jumping at a neighbors house, fireworks and a visit to Baltimore's Inner Harbor and Aquarium. Here's a couple pics to share:

Now on to some stitching news. I stitched this piece back in 2004 and it has been patiently waiting for me to frame it. I even had found the perfect frame back then, but just never got around to it. I have to admit I hate the mounting part!!! I had a wonderful framer back in Cincinnati, but have yet to "trust" my pieces to some one here in West Virginia. So I finally broke down and got the mounting done, bought some glass and put it all together. Here are the results:

Don't you just love the sunbather?

This was a Birds of the Feather chart, stitched on one of their hand dyed fabrics with Weeks Dye Works fibers. The photos don't do justice to the "boldness" of the fibers. It's a fun piece and I'm so happy to have it ready to hang on the wall!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
