Finished!

I finished Liam's sampler today.  I put his name and date of birth along the bottom of the letter blocks.  It's a good thing too because tomorrow is the day I'm going to The Strawberry Sampler.  I will turn it over to the girls for framing.


I used the chart for ABC Tapestry by Rosewood Manor.  I am also using this chart to stitch the entire alphabet.  I have some of it done but it will take me a very LONG time to finish that one!  I got the pattern for the letters from a book I had.  I can't remember if I got it from a yard sale or E-Bay.
This book really has alot of nice things in it including an alphabet made of carrot letters!  It's so cute.

Well anyway this is a short post today.  I'm headed off to the stitchy shop tomorrow where I will meet with Catherine from Bramblewood Stitches.  I am very excited about it....we both will have our cameras!

I can tell you I am NOT cut out for hotel living!  Housekeeping leaves so much to be desired here.  I went down to the front desk to tell the manager we can only turn off the heat by unplugging it, and that's not an easy task.  He responded by telling me "I know, this has been a problem".  Not...."Oh I'm sorry for your inconvenience I'll see if I can get someone up there right away to fix the problem"...or..."I'm sorry, may I offer you another room"?  We did manage to get a replacement for the refrigerator in our room though.  I got up in the middle of the night to give the old one a kick.  It sounded like a mad hornets nest was in there when it ran. Funny thing is when I kicked it, it quit!  For a while anyway.

Masterchief is "home" from work. His training is complete (almost).  He only has to sit through an all day class on Friday with a test following.

Thanks for stopping by.....

Gorgeous finish Peggy - it will be a family treasure always I'm sure. Be sure to show us when you get it framed. I like traveling generally but I agree hotels can be aggravating. It makes it so good to get home though!
