Library Finished!

I stayed up last night to finish 'the library'.  I was so close to being done, I didn't want to head off to bed until it was finished!  Yeah!!  I will post a picture after pressing.

Now, I need to press it and put it in the pile that needs to be framed.  I sometimes luck out and find frames at yard sales, and for some my hubby makes frames. 

I try to do flat folds, or other types of creative finishes some times too.  If I had unlimited funds at my disposal, I would 'outsource' all my finishing work, since it isn't my favorite thing to do...

I am looking forward to pulling out some of my stash tonight to decide what project will be next.  I was drooling over the new Prairie Schooler patterns I saw on Mary Kathryn's blog the other day...  In fact, I weakened and ordered three of them.  So, I will have a good surprise to watch for in the mail.

Well, the snow has moved out of our area today, and roads have been cleared, so it is back to work today.  We are opening the library at 1.  Hopefully the parking lot will be cleared by then.  It's bitterly cold today.  Still below zero at mid-morning....  But I am sure people will be venturing out, since cabin fever is most likely running rampant.

Happy Stitching!


  1. I look forward to seeing your Library. Your Four Seasons piece is gorgeous! I have to agree with you on the new Prairie Schooler designs. There are two that I really want!

    Hope it warms up for you soon.

  2. Congratulations on finishing The Library! And congrats on your new blog, too! I hope you find blogging as addictive as I do. :)


  3. I'm looking forward to seeing your Library finish! And your Marjolein Bastein finish -- so pretty! I used to collect her cards from Hallmark -- I love her art! Welcome to blogging! I hope the library parking lot was clear for you!

  4. Congratulations on finishing The Library. Can't wait to see it.

    I also ordered the new PS charts and can't wait to get them. I always love their patterns.
