What a busy May I have had. Staying up with the two grandkids activities, work and life in general, my stitching seem to slow down a little. I spent most of May stitching A Fireman's Prayer for my grandson as his gift for graduating from Fire Academy. My daughter gave him a party May 31th and yes I finished it just in time. It is not really framed and I have to take it and finish framing it, as it is just laying in the frame now. Here is it.

Then I attended the 8th grade musical Into the Woods. My granddaughter, Anna , was one of Cinderella's Stepsisters. She was really good, as well as all of the others. It was a great musical.

Of course, Mom is proud of her, too.
I also framed the November Indian Snowman-Vermillion. The frames are rub and buffed with silver leaf. Also showing the other ones I have finished.

Also did a little stitching on a few others in my rotation.
Red Birds Marie Barber-Nov/Dec JCS 2011
 Christmas Animals-Heaven and Earth Designs
 Snowman and Friends Christmas Stocking-Gold Collection Kit
I think I am back on schedule and be stitching a little more.
Have a great week.
