Me Time

Hello all!  It has been a bit since I blogged.  I caught the bambino's cold and I truly didn't have time for it.  So, when I wasn't painting I was having a little me time.  As much as I can have with a sick 3 year old *wink* I clipped peonies every day and I have little bunches all over the house.  I painted a table here that needed it and redecorated a powder room that probably didn't need it.  And, most importantly, I finished this:

Yes, all it needs is a pressing and a framing.  I went a little out on my own with some different color choices.  And, my stitches aren't as nice as the original.  I am pretty proud of it since it was a first try embroidering... up until now all I have done was little practice stitches and a little sign for our camper.  I have seriously thought about carrying it around with me and pulling it out at any given moment to show it off *wink*  And, here is a warning to friends... you should probably expect something embroidered in the near future.  I am already deciding what to work on next.

Okay, I will be back soon with some photos of home projects.  I have started quite a few small ones lately. Right now, I need to get to the shoppe and paint something *pink* for a sweet nursery.

bye for now~


  1. That's amazing! I'm still working on a cross stitch pattern I started back in January, so I admire your dedication.

  2. That embroidery is beautiful - I love it! I recently won a giveaway of some lovely embroidery patterns. I haven't done any for years but I used to do quite a bit of it. I am thinking it's time to reintroduce myself to it:)

  3. I remember when you first got this and wasn't sure if you could do it. It turned out beautiful. Please show it again when you get it framed. Great job.
