I had the pleasure of seeing a couple of finishes from some very sweet ladies recently, and as usual, I'd love to share them here. :) 

This is from Nadine in France… she stitched Fruit of the Spirit on Antique Ivory Belfast, and I love how beautifully it turned out…

Thank you so much, Nadine!

And here is Bonnie's Favorite Font Sampler, which she made into a pinkeep by stitching it on 48 count linen…


It's barely 5" x 2", and she used her own black walnut stain to dye it. I love how primitive it turned out!

Thank you so much to both Nadine and Bonnie for sharing your finishes with me. I'm blessed. 🙂

It's been a very busy spring so far in the Stewart house… each new day has been quite full, but I'm not complaining. It's that time of year when the stores are full of graduation gift ideas (yay, Sabrina!), there are bags of mulch to purchase at every gas station, and Bre starts slowly bringing her dorm things back in laundry baskets, ready to move back home for the summer. (Which I'm very excited about, btw.)

And amid all the bustle that is our house lately, the trees bloom quietly; their heady fragrance hangs in the air when the wind is still and the moon is out. And that's when the Yorkie decides to take a dump on my living room carpet just so I will toss her outside and she can enjoy the moonlit spring.

    how old is the yorkie? maybe its time to start crate training? one is NEVER too old for that!

  2. Pretty finishes but that doggie … my MY what a ham for the camera. Always such a treat to see that cutie pie face. Zack wants a dog so BAD … I think he’d move Miss Maddy Cat out the door if we could get one. I need to show him this picture – it will pacify him, a bit. lol
