Bent Creek's Rowmance Finish

Finished up Bent Creek's Rowmance today. It was stitched on 30 count Old Mill Java with GAST and WDW threads. I changed the flowers from blue to a pink and used a different red than the pattern called for. I also placed a bee button instead of stitching the bee on the pattern. Thanks for that suggestion Jinger! It was very easy and fun to stitch.

I received a couple of awards. The first is Sunshine Blogger Award from Jinger and Jackie . Thanks so much ladies!

I also received an award from Bette . The Beautiful Blogger award. Thank you Bette!

Live Humbly and Romance are so beautiful! And you have a beautiful family. I wish I could share pics of my kids too but they all refuse in the house... :(((

Congratulations on an adorable finish, Sharon! I love it.

Congrats, too, on the award, and thanks for sharing it with me. I love Criminal Minds--love love love it--and The Closer! I also enjoy NCIS but everybody in my family hates it (my kids refer to it as "that gay show you & Nana like", LOL), so I try to catch it when I'm on my own. I love me some Gibbs!!
