And A Forest Grew...and Thank You Claudia!!!


It is another Saturday, and another And A Forest Grew update! I am getting pretty close to the bottom center now!!!

Thank you Claudia! I received a total surprise, and a real treat, in my mailbox today! Claudia recently stitched LHN/CC's Pineapples, saw it in my wishlist and sent me her chart and left over floss! Oh, you are so sweet!!! Thank you!!

I did bring several pieces in for framing today... but the list is a bit different from what I posted last night... in about two weeks, I should have them. Mike is doing this as part of my birthday gift... I dropped off Paradigm Lost, An Emblem of Love, Mermaids of the Deep Blue, Medieval Town Mandala and Catch the Wind (I stitched Catch the Wind close to ten years ago - and finally, it is getting framed!!). Now the challenge will be to figure out where I want to hang each of these!!

Stitched on today: Finished my needleroll for the Needleroll Exchange, and And A Forest Grew ***and, posted Karen's Neighborhood Round Robin off to Nicole this morning :-)

Oh boy, I can't wait to see all your lovely framing when it comes home to stay! I've already warned Niek that our NRR is going to be professionally framed. :D

Your progress looks great. Looking forward to seeing them all framed. MTM is also at my framer and I will get it back next weekend.

I am really looking forward to seeing your framed pieces. It's just the best feeling when you see them framed and ready to put on display.

Forest is looking great, and all the ones you dropped off for framing sound wonderful. Can't wait to see pictures of them all finished off, especially Mermaids.

Have fun with pineapples, that was sweet of her to send it to you. I don't have that one, but do have several of their threadpacs that I'm looking forward to doing.

I am looking forward to seeing your framed piece. It must be that time of year. I dropped off two for "birthday framing" too!

AAFG is such a stunning piece, Carol! And I can't imagine your joy at receiving such a birthday pressie from Mike. It has been years and years since I had anything framed. 2001, if I remember correctly :o/
