Very productive weekend.....


...for hubby and I in both the yard and house, but I did find a little time to steal away to stitch.

 BOAF "Bitter Flower Sampler"
28ct coffee-dyed evenweave
w/recommended ST

Another Crazy Challenge piece....number six....
is finished.   This one ran hot and cold as far
as my interest because the colors in the flower 
looked so different from the model pic. 
But once I really got going and it began to
develop, it was much more enjoyable to stitch. 


Spring time....bees & all

BOAF is another designer I discovered a little late but am lucky enough to have a few more of their designs.   I really do like their style and know I will be stitching more in the near future.

Welll.....I'm very excited that Law & Order: Criminal Intent will be back tonight.  I have really missed Bobby!   I am off to choose a project out of my Big 'O Bag of Challenge and get comfy in my stitching chair so that I don't miss a moment. 

Hope you have had a good weekend and
happy stitching....

  20. A gorgeous finish Karen. I love the colours. I, too, am late discovering BOAF but am hoping to get my hands on Sally Spencer Spencer from an ONS. I have asked one here in the UK if they can get it for me and as it's still listed on Hoffman's I'm hopeful:)
