Debi's Roses Finished!

Hello all!

I finished Debi's Roses on Sunday and took it out for a photo session in the park! (Insert laugh here)The photos didn't turn out as good as I wanted them but oh well. I think it was the blinding sunlight.  Couldn't tell if the photos worked or not.  I wanted to post the pictures earlier this week but have been too exhausted from long days of teaching kids with faaaaaar too much energy to even bother trying to type/post do anything.  What is it about kids in June???? Why are they so wacky and nutty??? Oh right, it's almost SUMMER!!! Being a teacher on call I get the worse wacky doodle behavior! I can hardly wait to have my own class.  One day soon I hope!


Anywho, I am pleased about finishing Debi's Roses and decided to leave the edges clean too.  I kinda started the urge to pick up another Chatelaine design so I began stitching Tiny Rose Mandala.  However, I didn't like the linen I was stitching it on.  I want to use lugana so I bought some early one morning while my husband was sleeping..hehe.  He still doesn't know! Now, our postal workers have shut down service completely!! Ack! This is not good for my stash or my giveaway.  I hope they settle the dispute soon.  If it doesn't resolve by the time of my giveaway draw, I will keep the winner posted. 

Also if anyone is interested in doing IHSW (International hermit and stitch weekend) go to Joyce's blog Random Ramblings and enter your name to join in on the fun!  I'm thinking of trying to get more branches done and more progress on my Queen's Sampler.

There's still time to enter the giveaway! Enter your comment by clicking on the post in my sidebar!

Take care and happy stitching!

This is a beautiful biscornu! It's so funny, because I just downloaded Debi's Roses a week ago. It's on my to-do list for the summer. Yours turned out great!

All the best!
