First Finish of 2007!!

I have my first finish of 2007! Yeah!!! I was able to finish it quicker than I thought. That is always a nice thing to have happen. Wish it would happen with my Holiday Express piece. Oh, well. I HOPE to have that one finished this year. It may be December before it gets done, but I am trying. :-) is:

Peter's Cotton Knits
by: Raise the Roof

Fabric: 28 ct. Summer Sky Jobelyn

Threads used: the suggested DMC & Crescent Colours

Changes made:

- changed color of one egg in the basket
- did not use birdhouse button in tree
- made some changes on mailbox so I could put date
- didn't use backstitch thread on clothesline, didn't like the way it looked

It's been a long week! I still have my Christmas decorations up. Can you believe it? I generally wait until after Three Kings Day (Jan. 6th), but then we went out of town last weekend, so it didn't get done then. I hope to get some done this weekend, but 2 things have popped up this weekend. UGH!!! I hope to get most of it done this weekend anyway.

Besides my train...I started stitching on a freebie heart design I got from the internet. Hope to have it finished in the next week or so. Will post picture of it soon.

I really like the bunny clothesline. Pieces like that are so much fun to stitch. That's the kind I usually do! You did a great job! Have a happy day!
