*A Beautiful Day for Stitching*

I spent the day outside on our deck, stitching in the sunshine.  I was supposed to be doing finishing work up in my studio, but it was just too nice of a day to stay inside.  I'm stitching some pieces that I hope to post to TDIPT on the 15th.  As I get them finished I'll try and get pics posted here on my blog.

 I recently finished another custom order.  This time for a "Bloom" pinkeep.  The customer wanted something with more of a summery feel, so I used a light greenish overdyed wool and some taupe colored ric rac for the finish.  I got the wool from Ram in the Thicket.  Susan, the owner, has the most amazing array of colors and a whole section dedicated to just primitive colors.  How great is that? 
Well, I was very happy with the way it came out and hope she likes it just as much.
Enjoy the day and Happy Stitching.
