Best Vacation

Last week was the best of all worlds - I had a week-long vacation & I spent most of the time stitching. Of course, that means I have pics to share......



This was a housewarming gift for my daughter's friends. She wanted to give them something unusual so I combined her words with a mix of patterns. They got a kick out of the figures - he has dreadlocks & she has a bob so I tried to capture their styles (lol). Can't even remember where I got the aida - the border was so nice, didn't need a matte for the frame.


As I was browsing Hobby Lobby I found this pre-striped aida from DMC (hope you can see the pink stripes). What a good idea - there are about a half dozen pre-printed designs. I selected the stripe to compliment this chart I picked up last spring in Metairie, LA. The pink & green combo is perfect for the AKA sorority event I'm doing in November.



And I can almost remove this from my WIP list - it's the potholder I started sometime last year. Few more fill-in stitches and I'm done.

That's so neat how you made the figures match the couple. I really like the ASAP one.

Deb, I envy you! A week of stitching. I'm getting there. I'm going to post my blanket this weekend. I'm almost done!
