Working through WIPs

Here are the last 2 finishes of 2013.  These were in the WIP pile and have now found a home in the to be framed pile.  The first is LHN Song of the Seasons stitched on suggested fabric with suggested WDW threads.  I left the alphabet off and added an extra branch with birds to fill the space.  I enjoyed this stitch and really can't figure out why it took me so long to finish stitching it.   



The next finish was a SAL offered by the Threadbasket in 2012.  I had most of it completed but set it aside to start something else.  Well, I finished it before the new year.  Thank goodness.  My plan is to frame it in a white frame.  I stitched it on 30ct WDW Cocoa with DMC threads.

This weekend went by far too quickly.  My oldest son headed back to college and now we try to settle into a routine again.  Before I know it he will be home for the summer.  The temps have been mild this weekend but we had a tremendous amount of rain. Today was blue skies and sunshine so we took miss Daisy for a nice long walk.  She is now sleeping soundly and is quite content.  Here is a picture of her on her new bed (small couch from LL Bean and her favorite blankie.
On the stitching front am I still working on Hibernation Day.  I am in the home stretch and hope to have a finish soon.  I hope you had time to relax and maybe cross a few x's. Have a wonderful week. Happy Stitching!
