My good friend and owner of my LNS, the Cross Stitch Corner, reminded me again this morning that I had not posted the newest photos of some of my work. Well, here we go.

I've really got into making purses and this is the latest. I stitched the JA piece from a Sampler Girl chart and then placed it on the front of the purse. I found the fabby at Hobby Lobby and it just seemed "to fit".


My second finish is the second in Lizzie Kate's seasonal fob series. This was great fun to stitch and put together--both times. I finished it, put it on the coffee table and Linzie chased it down and removed the ribbon and the heart button. She went into time out and I repaired the damage.The first in the series I received from my partner in the LK exchange.


This knob knocker was stitched from another Sampler Girl chart. It's still hanging on my mantle. I used some fabby I found at my local quilt shop. It just looked Jane Austen-y.


Life continues on here, oil spill and all. Our Fourth was spent at church. We had a special Fourth of July program and it was fantastic.

Guess that's about all. Linzie is keeping us busy. And I'm finishing the framing of a couple of older finished. I ordered the frames--on piece is HUGE--and now they are almost ready.

Gotta do better than this at posting.....,

We were in B'ham on the Fourth - great fireworks at Vulcan Park! We stayed at the B&B I wrote about, and had a front row seat, from the front yard and porch. :-)
