More Bordeaux

Here is this week's progress on Bordeaux Sampler. This band seems to move along pretty well. Albeit, there are a whole lot of over one grapes to do on it, but tonight I just ignored those :-)

Great news in my family tonight! My eldest niece Caitlin, age 18 - high school senior, received her letter of acceptance into the New England Institute of Art in Brookline, Massachusetts for next fall! Caitlin, like her grandmother and her father, is very artistic. I am thrilled for her. I am sad to have to admit that I had no idea what Cait was going to do after high school. She gave no real indication of what she wanted to do with her adult life, except for continuing with her ballet. I was so happy to get this call today! She seems to have found a good track!

Happy Birthday Gig! My kitty Gig is six years old today - no photo, he is up in bed with Mike right now - maybe I will get one from his "birthday week" soon :-)

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and Bordeaux Sampler

Bordeaux is lovely, but I can see how all the over 1 on the grapes would slow it down when you work on those.

Wonderful news on your niece, and Happy Birthday to Gig. Did you give him a special birthday treat or toy.
