I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

Fair Results and Rainforest, Framed

Hey Blog Buddies,

Thanks so much for all your kind comments about my pyramid!  (I will miss it when it's gone.)  To answer the question "Why 39?":  I am making one for each of the 27 people who will be attending my embroidery guild's workshop in September.  The rest will be sold at my quilt guild's boutique in November.  (Do I belong to too many guilds?)  And I will keep one, or maybe two, for myself.

Yesterday I got my stuff back from the Lake County Fair!
Front Row:  Uptown Stitcher by Libby Sturdy,
NOEL by Erica Michael, Soar by Brenda Gervais
Back Row:  CT13 by Alessandra Adelaide

No Sweeps or Champion ribbons,
but I'm quite happy with how I did.

And today, I went to pick up Rainforest Revisited at the framers.

This is Sue at The Great Frame-Up in
Orland Park, IL.
She does all my framing.
I love how it looks--you can tell I'm not a fan of ornate!

This one will go up next to Rainforest Crunch.
Now that I have two that can hang in the space I've picked,
I can take down all the small Christmas
pictures that have been up since last year!

That's it for now.
Hope you get time to do something fun today.
Thanks for visiting!

Congratulations on your ribbons! I entered some of my things in the KY State Fair - probably won't win anything, but you have to start somewhere. I did well at the County Fair. I love the Rainforest - I agree you don't need ornate when the stitching is so fantastic!
