Another finish and frame and some dancing :)

Morning bloggers !

Stitching update this week sees another crazy finish and some work on a wip.

After last weeks update I was ready to work on the Horses picture for Caoimhe’s birthday, not expecting it to be finished in this rotation I was thrilled to put the last stitch in. I managed to fnid a cheap enough frame and the kit came with a horsey mount of its own. I can’t recall the name of the kit but I did replace the aida with antique white evenweave and used the threads from the kit.

This is the fourth crazy piece finished and framed so I’m pleased with that.
After finishing the horses I hauled out the Taj Mahal piece I worked on last year and did a 10 hour rotation on this. I like the simplicity of a couple of colours used to effect. I may do some more next time round or I may leave it for when I feel the need to work on an uncomplicated piece.

I’m now half way through the rotation on my Dad’s birthday piece, a fishing picture. So updates on that next week along with the next project or two.
This weekend is IHSW so you know what that means, clear the calender and settle yourself down to a weekend of stitching. To join in the fun pop over to to Joysze’s blog HERE and sign up.

I leave you now with a photo of Benjamin and Elizabeth dancing 🙂
They had been dancing round the sitting room as I knitted the other day and posed perfectly for the snap lol.

Happy stitching,

    I love when little kids dance together, even if it's just holding hands and swaying back and forth. They're adorable when they do that. Little Man just shakes his own booty…I'm not sure that he'd let anyone else dance with him. Hmmm…

    So I'm going to be blatantly honest. I don't really like kids – could take them or leave them honestly and would be perfectly happy if I never had any. BUT OMG THAT IS THE CUTEST PICTURE EVER! I'm glad you shared it 🙂
