Rainbow Row start....

I finally got started Saturday night and here is my progress after four nights...

This is actually stitching up pretty quickly so I should be done by the end of the month if I stick with it! The thread colors are very different than the larger Rainbow Row. These colors are brighter, and I plan to make a few changes after comparing the two. My first Rainbow Row took me 9 years to finish and I might be able to finish this one in 9 days! Four down....five to go!


On a side note.....hubby had to bottle his latest beer tonight and I thought I would share some pics. We love beer and this time he brewed a cherry stout...yum. It still needs to sit in the bottle for 2 more weeks to get that carbonation, but definitely has the strong coffee taste!

After two weeks of fermenting in the carboy.....

it is transferred to the bottle....

where it will sit for two more weeks.....

and we will enjoy July 4th! Yes, it is that dark and taste like cold coffee ...sorta!

Thanks for all of your comments on my recent finishes. I love to blog hop and look at everyone's stitching so I appreciate you visiting my little place in the web universe! Happy stitching!


  1. Wow!! You got a lot complished in four hours!!! With this rate I'm sure you can get it done in no time~~

  2. Rainbow Row looks great!
    When we were first married, we home brewed too...we loved to do it! And being German and from a very small German Community we thought everyone home brewed until we told someone we did it and they thought we were nuts! Now we don't do it because we don't have as much free time...but there is NOTHING like a good stout that you brewed yourself! Wish I could taste it!

  3. YOU GO GIRL!! You're moving fast on this and it's looking great!

    Beer that tastes like cherry coffee?
    Hmmmm....sounds good;)
