A few weeks ago, I took 4 of my completed counted cross stitch pictures in to be framed. This week, I had a call that three were done. The frame for the last one is still on order as I did not make the final selection until later for that one. The first picture is a Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass window called "Tree of Life". The original window is in the Darwin Martin House, in Buffalo, NY. My husband and I did a tour of that house in 2013 and I bought the kit to make this picture in their gift shop. This will hang in our living room.
The Fountain Art Glass window was a pattern I bought online. The original window is in the Susan Lawrence Dana House in Springfield, IL. I have seen this house from the outside but it was not open for tours the day we were in Springfield...we will need to take a trip there someday to take the tour. I will be hanging this one in the living room as well.
I bought the kit to make this snow people picture many years ago and started it but then it got put away...waiting to be found again when I was cleaning up one day. I finished it, finally, and it is framed and ready to hang on the wall next winter. The snowflakes in the sky are little white seed beads.
Miami is coming along too. My daughter collects Starbucks mugs from various places she has visited and this morning, she was drinking her coffee from her Miami mug. It makes a great prop in the picture of her Miami cityscape cross stitch!
Finn likes to keep an eye on her at all times!
The second sun is still in progress.
I have also been working on some secret projects this week. I will be able to show them after they are gifted. There has been lots of activity in the sewing room this week.
It is stinking hot here this week and so last night I made a cold supper, which included this beet and goat cheese salad. Yum!
I will be linking up with Kathy and the Slow Sunday Stitchers tomorrow morning.
