My little buddy Beau spent the evening just like this next to me, sound asleep atop my little chest of stash drawers next to my stitching chair. Figured he would like to visit with you too ;-)

I love this photo of Kevin Garnett of the Boston Celtics - grabbed it as the wallpaper on my computer at one of my offices today - just sharing this too... I thought it looked kinda cool.

Looking great Carol - love the sort of vintage look this piece has. I think you have the Keebler elves helping you stitch while you sleep - you are so productive and I don't know how you do it!! I am envious for sure. :)

I'm a long time fan of Hillside Samplings, but must admit that I haven't stitched one of their designs for a long time. I have always liked this one - you should have it finishd in no time!

Kim B said...
