Even basking in the warmth of your comments, I still know that there are talented people out there who are actually completing projects. I don't happen to be one of them (at least for right now), so I'll reintroduce you to Nancy. Remember last month when I showed you Nancy's finished stitching? Well, last week she brought it to us in its final form - beautifully framed. Here's the proud stitcher!
|I thought I had the whole thing in my camera window, but somehow I cut off one side of it. You get the idea, though. Mat colors are purple and what I'd call eggplant.|
This was a free design, but you'll need to sign up for the designer's newsletter to get it. The newsletter sign up link is in the left sidebar of the webpage. The design offers both red and blue alternatives, but Nancy went with her own beautiful color choices.
This is completely unrelated, but do any of you get the Victoria's Secret bathing suit catalogs? Why-oh-why do I receive these things? I can be feeling all Fit and Fifty (three) and content, then it's like the universe has decided that I'm too happy so it has to drop one of these little gems in my mailbox.
And WHAT is with the "I'm taking my pants off now" pose in most of these photos? Each model has her thumbs tucked into her bottoms like she can hardly keep her lady parts hidden any more. Enough with the "Let's Pretend I'm Taking These Off For You, Big Boy" Pose.
|Oh wait...let me take off these bothersome bottoms. We models don't like to wear pants. Or bottoms. They're so yesterday.|
But wait, here's my favorite pose.
My apologies to Nancy for lumping her beautiful and reverent cross-stitch into a post with these ummmm...questionable ads for swimwear. But I'll bet Jesus would be shaking his head, too.
