Two Finishes!

First up is Wrought by My Hand by Pineberry Lane. This was a Prim Sister's Club kit. It was such fun to stitch. I changed my colors up just a little. The chart had one more color option for the insides of the berries, which was the cream color you see above. The shirt on my little lady was supposed to be a gray color but since it didn't go very with her darker skin tone, I changed it to cream as well.  I also decided to leave her face blank. This was stitched on 30 count Confederate Gray linen with Gentle Arts Threads. I did make one mistake in that it was supposed to be stitched with one thread over two. I didn't read my directions (bad Sharon!) and I stitched mine two over two.  Note to self, read the darn directions first!

This is The Sowing Sampler by Norforgotten Farm. It was also a Prim Sister's Club kit which a lovely stitcher was so very kind to let me borrow her pattern. I just loved this saying on this sampler so much! I did read the directions this time and it is stitched one thread over two on 30 count Tin Roof linen, with Gentle Art Threads. Both these pieces are to be framed and I am thinking of doing a primitive type of stitching wall in my bedroom. So, I think I am off to a good start with these two!
Last but certainly not least, I leave you with a picture of my oldest Brandon, this was him on his way to his Senior prom. I am so proud of him this year. He has been on the A/B honor roll all year and he will graduate high school next month on June 4th. So hard to believe we are at this point. I can still remember bringing him home from the hospital! Time really does fly! He plans to go to college and he would like to do engineering (or so he says at the moment!)LOL
