New canvases

I purchased two of the Stitching Girls by Melissa Shirley. Have always loved them and when Karen found them I just had to get them.

Here is Moe Zaick.

Here is Barr Giello.

They are small and should be quick stitches. I also ordered two more and will tell you who when I get them.

Look at now cute Colleen had them framed. Plan on doing something similar for my sewing room.

Last night I started A Royal Pain In The Tudors and am always amazed at how Amy works such magic. I was in needlepoint heaven stitching last night. Cannot wait to stitch to night. Unfortunately, I cannot stitch during the day with Jake and only stitch for an hour or two at night. Looking to having the summer off.

Speaking of Jake what would a post be without a picture of the big guy.

Jake and a bunny. No it is not ours. He was at a party where they had a petting zoo. He loved the bunny.

Hi, Linda - Love your cute canvases! Those will be fun to stitch. I read back through some of the posts of your trip and it looks like you visited some incredible shops. Jake is really getting big! So sweet with the bunny! I started the Tudors last night as well. Lots of fun ahead for us! Take care - Melinda

The stitching girls are very cute. I had no idea that they even existed.

Jake is getting so big.

After reading your blog for the last year it was nice to meet at the workshop in Austin. I'm glad that you made it home safely. Love the canvases you picked out, can't wait to see what you do with them.
