Hello Stitching friends!

I just have a stitching finish this afternoon! The Sunday NFL start allowed me the chance to finish this piece.

Flag Day by With Thy Needle and Thread. I'm not sure how I will finish this. I should probably frame it, since it would fit in well with my other patriotic themed pieces in our computer room. Some of my friends at stitch group were bothered by the fact that the woman has no eye.... But it's folk art... I think it will be fine the way she is.

Now, I can think about what I want to start next.... I have a few choices ;) I will have fun pulling out some charts and seeing what I need to be ready to start.

I finished a great book last night in the early morning hours.... How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny. I gave it 5 stars on goodreads. I think she is one of my favorite authors. If you haven't started these yet, I would start with her first one in the series, Still life. They are mysteries set in Canada.

It's funny how often a cross stitch finish happen on the same day.... A new start for both reading and stitching. How fun is that?!

I will have to organize a new start before Monday night since I'm hosting our stitching group at our house..

Happy Stitching!

  1. Congrats on the finish! And who cares about her eye, the more important thing is that she doesn't have lipstick on! Come on, add a little french know for the eye and some lips. The sheep has both eyes and the mouth!
