This morning I woke early and decided to browse through Blogger and catch up on my blog reading. I saw Tanya's post (The Sampler Girl) for today about her mom's blog, which led to checking out her mom's website HERE
which then led to finding this freebie HERE and then I decided to stitch it today. What a connection, right? Well that's just the first Twist of the day.
I went into my studio and the first remnant I saw was 30 count R & R Autumn Leaves and as I looked out the sunny window and knew today was going to be a soup, bedrest and medicine for sinus infection/ear ache day, I gathered my 3 colors I chose which are GA Autumn Leaves threads , DMC 310 black, and Crescent Colors Smokey for the bat.
As I was stitching along with my Mighty Brite light and large cuppa hot tea, I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this piece and it made the day a little brighter.
When I finished it, I backed it with some Autumn Leaves, burnt rust fabric and then realized that I had stitched on Autumn Leaves, with Autumn Leaves thread and backed it with Autumn leaves material.
That's the Twist for Tuesday today. Maybe it's the Benadryl and Tylenol doses, I don't know but here is the finish!
It's made for a hanging and I found some remnant black ribbon that I had squirreled away in my stash after using it several years ago for a curtain tieback. Yes, I'm recycling! :0
I randomly tacked it down with black thread and tied at the bottom. I left enough at the top for a hanger and I attached these metal pumpkin bells I had in my stash from the April Boston trip.
It will probably reside here for right now, hanging on my new/old shelf with other treasures.
Thomas is jealous of the black cats and he actually peaked over my shoulder while in my stitching chair earlier.
Yep, I thought someone was peaking over me.
I promise to get the Thomas sampler freebie I designed last week stitched for him this year. Maybe on Thursday if all goes well.
Of course no posting can't be without an Abbie pic.
Today she waited patiently on her daddy to come home while I was busy. She even had taken her dirty little favorite Teddy Bear and put it in his chair.
See those eyes. They just make us cave every time to play with her.
I don't know which likes it more but this I know for sure.
She has brought more happiness, more love in this home that anybody or anything ever has. She loves unconditionally and is the sweetest lump of sugar ever. The End.
