A finish, A Frame, A Fabulous Day

What a beautiful day! All my windows are open and I can hear the birds a chirping. I love this 70 degree weather. Wouldn't it be great to have spring year around. The cooking at noon for the men is going OK. And what ever is left over is what I feed my husband and it seems to be working pretty good so far.
Progress on the new farm shop and office

With temps in the 70's for the next few day the workers should make some good progress on this project.

And with all the cooking, cleaning and babysitting I have managed to get some stitching done:
first thing I finished stitching and making it into a flat ornament went in my give away , can't show a picture yet, so after Lesleyanne lets me know she has received her package I will post a picture of it.

I completed this bib that I show you in an earlier post.
Finished this on 3/13/12

I also finished 8 Baptismal bibs for our church. I forgot to take pictures of them before I took them to be stored at the church and be used as they need them. I cut out a pattern on white cotton and embroider a cross in the center, add a little lace and sew the front and back together, iron them and they are ready to go.

Monday my framer called and said my picture was done so Tuesday after I fed the men I made a trip to town and picked it up. It turned out great, these pictures really don't do it justice.
Metamorphosis - Ink Circle
Framed 3/13/12

A close up of the frame I chose

The light colored mat is the same color as the center design.
 A light green.

And lastly I have been working on Enchanted Alphabet but not enough progress to have its picture taken, so my next update maybe I will have a photo.

Tomorrow my niece goes in to have her baby, My sister is so excited to be a first time Grandma. Not only does she get one grandchild this year, but her oldest daughter is also having a baby that is due in August. My husband and I will be great aunt & uncle 5 times this year. Baby's all over the place!

Off to get some stitching done and watch some TV!
Happy Stitching

Nice stitching, and with so much work going on too! Hope the weather holds up for you over there so lots of progress will be made.

I love the frame you chose, too! And I'm glad you said something about the color of the mat - it looks brown on my monitor!

Congratulations on all the babies!!!
