Latest Finishes

As usual it has been quite awhile since my last post!!!
I have been busy though.  I have had some commitment stitching that I had to get done and I still have a few more things I need to get stitched but I am taking a break and doing a couple of things for myself.

First up is a Prim Sisters Club kit from Appleseed Prim.  It is called Belinda Coffin.
It was a quick stitch after some of my commitment pieces.

 Belinda Coffin--stitched on 30 count R & R French Vanilla linen with the overdyed threads included in the kit.  
Started 5-18-2014, Finished 5-24-2014.
Bonus:  this frame was in my frame stash.  Paid $2.98 for it.

Next up is BBD--In Full Glory.
Stitched on 30 count Natural linen with DMC threads.
Started 5-24-2014, Finished 5-28-2014.
Another fun and quick stitch.

 View of the side of the pillow.  Hand dyed ric-rac.

Then I decided  to start BBD--A Salute to Abigail.
My progress since May 28th.  I am also enjoying this piece.

 Here is a picture of our newest grandchild.  This is Finnegan.  He is another reason I have been busy.  
He is already 3 months old.  Where does the time go???

And here is Finnegan's older brother Charlie (Tuna).  He also keeps "Nammy" busy but
they sure are fun:)  I will have to say that Grandchildren are much more fun than our own kids were!!!
So nice not to have all that responsibility as much as I loved my own!

I have so much more to post and hopefully I will be doing that real soon.

I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Weather here in Minnesota has been wonderful this last week
after the loooong winter.
