  5. Beautiful! I love the colors. You are one fast stitcher. My German upbringing dictates that I may not stitch during the day. Daytime is only for working. Consequently, it takes me a very long time to finish a project.

  14. What a beautiful. I love your color changes. Congratulations on your finish. Housework comes after stitching in my opinion. Have a great weekend.
