Thank you for all of your lovely comments about Tahiti. I haven't really decided what to do with the finished piece just yet, but I'm leaning toward a funky frame for the Big White Wall of Nothingness. I think that the Michael's is having a framing sale, so Aunt Chrissy and I might have to add a trip there to our list of Sissy Day errands.
Last night I played with Barnwood Buttons. I wish that I could adequately capture the color of the linen. Miss Joy from House of Stitches really hooked me up with this -- it's 28ct. "Raisin" and is simply divine. I will confess, though, that I'm having a heck of a time seeing adequately, so methinks I'll have to put a white towel/cloth on my lap for some reflection. (Either that, or I could scrub Stewey up with his new brightening shampoo and position him just so. Good grief, I can almost hear him kvetching now.)
What's on your agenda for the weekend? Aunt Chrissy and I are headed to the Rural King for some backyard supplies. Although neither of us are what you'd call "outdoorsy kind of people", we do love a pretty patio. I usually do flowers and such in the front of my house, but this year I'm thinking that I'll concentrate on the back so that I can enjoy it. I'll keep you posted, and I'm sure that Stewey will give you his thoughts and opinions as soon as it's all finished.
Have a great weekend! Woo Hoo!
