Small finish and a new start



I finished last week my August angel from the barefoot angel of the month club from Curtis Boehringer. I know the finishing is simple on this one just did not have it in me to go all out and finish it off more than I did. I also have started working on a new start this week, the design comes from a cross stitch book of patterns designed by Mary Englebreit. This is a bday gift I am working on for a friend. When I seen this pattern it was calling to me! This one is a bit different for me because the entire block will be stitched so I really need to make sure I am careful. It is supposed to be a picture of a cottage in the country side when it is done. A lot of back stitching and detail work and beads needing to be sewed in when this is done but I think it will look great! Things here are back to normal. The 9th my son turnbed 13 so my dad was here in town to visit so I am now finally getting my house in order after having people coming and going this week. Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words!
