Another Project Done!


I was going to wait until tomorrow night to report on my weeks progress. But it always a good feeling to get something done! I finished my May Flowers Mini wall hanging. YES!! It's not a big thing but it is a done thing!
I also have been working on a Mystery Project, I'm trying to do a cross stitch picture for my friend. I purchased the lime green fabric I needed with out checking out the size of the thread count. I'm suppose to use two threads but it looked to heavy, so I took it out and tried one strand. It looks OK but I had such problems seeing the threads I had to cross I gave up. That's even with my light and the magnifying glass and new glasses. So today I ran to Hobby Lobby and found some Aida cloth in a slightly different shade of lime green but it is 14 count. I hope it works easier, it won't look as nice as the linen but it will be done. I won't post pictures until it has been delivered, only because I don't want to spoil the surprise. She know she is getting something because I'm going to see her for her Birthday in May. She lives in Miami FL. After 17 years of marriage I'm finally taking my husband back to my old stomping grounds. Last year when she was in town for my birthday we made plans for me to be in town for her Birthday this year. I'm counting the days until I'm on vacation and out of here!
