Jakes Cars

Jake's cars are finally finished. This canvas is by Alice Peterson with stitch guide by Amy Bunger. Amy did a wonderful stitch guide for this fun canvas. Now I have to have it framed for Jake's big boy room. As soon as Jen finishes work in June, Jake will be going into a big boy's bed and the room will be redecorated with a cars theme.
The roof for the Thanksgiving House is on stretcher bars, center has been found and is waiting for the first stitch to be taken. Hope to get started this afternoon.
Happy Easter

Linda,

You have certainly outdone yourself. It is absolutely precious and the stitching is out of the world beautiful. Can't wait to see it framed.

Way to go, Nana. This is such a treasure. These boys remember the things that were made for them. My daughter rug hooked a dalmatian pillow for her brother over ten years ago. He's 15yo and still has it on the sofa in his room.

Have you started the house? Check the FB page. Apparently, all roofs are not painted the same. Easy to adjust with Amy's guidance. Off to do my walking, clean up and stitch!

Wow, it's beautiful and you stitched it in record time. Looking forward to watching you stitch the Thanksgiving House. Melissa Shirley has outdone herself with all her houses.

Very cute canvas for the big boy. It's hard to believe that he is old enough for a larger bed. Time flies!

He'll love this forever. You did a great job.

Hi, Linda - Jake is an awfully lucky little man to have a grandmother who took the time to put herself and her love into every stitch in this cute canvas! It is really adorable - you and Amy are the best!
