Cappucino Finish!



Oh, I know I am a lazy blogger these days but here is cappuccino by LHN done on 32 count dirty linen. The picture is not so great- as I had a hard time getting a good picture of this. I hope to do all six of these and hang in my kitchen. Next up is frappucino. I tell you as much as I love these-the borders tend to be so tedious! Otherwise not much going on here. I now have two teenagers in my house-EEK! My daughter turned thirteen last Friday. Her birthday list included hair, nails, shopping, ear piercings for the third time, cake and crab legs! I say to her-you do know Christmas is next month! Good grief! I need a second job!

Speaking of Christmas-anyone start their shopping? I have-almost halfway done with the kids. I can't think of anything for the adults yet! Now, I am going to stitch! Have a great week and thanks for all your comments on my finishing. I appreciate them very much!

Beautiful Sharon! Boy, that blue color is just so rich looking. The border may be tedious but it looks great :o)

The only thing I want from Santa this year is for DH to come home. LOL!

Another great finish, Sharon!!
And er... Christmas shopping? We have a little thing called 'Sinterklaas-shopping' over here in The Netherlands, and it needs to be done by December 5th. And no, I haven't even started thinking about what to get for everyone yet! Ack!!!

Christmas shopping?! Haven't even started yet... I was planning on making all of my gifts this year, but I really should have started about 6 months earlier :)

Nice finish!

Sharon, I just love your new finish! Your stitching is really beautiful! I only have Frapuccino and haven't done it yet. It is in my stash but I would like the others too! They are so cute! You did a fantastic job on this! Debby :)

Concetta said...

Cappuccino is gorgeous!! The colours look really good on that fabric. I can't wait to see you finish the others. :)

Belated birthday wishes to your daughter. Shopping, nails, hair etc... yup, she's definitely officially a teenager. :)

That came out very nice!

Beautiful finish!

Sally said...

Nice finish Sharon.

I also have a DD who's birthday is this month. She's 14 on Sunday. Her list consisted of make-up, CDs, which isn't too bad but last year she asked for GHD hair straighteners at over £100! Needless to say she did not get them! LOL!

I have bought one thing so far for a Christmas present. I have no idea what I'm going to buy for people and I keep asking to the kids to make a decent list as grandparents, aunties and uncles will be asking!

Lisa said...

wow! I do love those LHN designs, The colours are lovely, well done on completing the border it looks great
no christmas shopping stated yet, I've been to busy with birthdays in my family this month

Great work on Cappucino. I love that series although I've yet to do one. Happy Birthday to your daughter. Thirteen is such a special one for girls.

Congrats on your finish, Sharon. Happy Bday to your DD (LOL, not much on her bday list, eh?) I've got most of my Christmas shopping done.

Angela said...

Congrats on the finish, it looks wonderful :)

J Rae said...

2 teenagers in the house! Pretty frightening! Sounds like she had a great B-day! :-)

As for Christmas shopping. I have started. I have my in-laws bought for. We will go to visit them next weekend and I wanted to be able to deliver it all so we wouldn't have to pay shipping. I have also purchased a couple of things for my son. His B-day is the week after Christmas, so I have double duty going on. :-)

Bette said...

Very cute finish, Sharon. Love the blue in the border

Ruth said...

Cool finish. Congrats. But did you have to mention Christmas shopping??????? Jeez. I used to shop all year and be waaaay ahead of the game. Sigh.
