All Done!

     The wedding gift, "A Good Marriage" is all stitched.  All it needs is a frame and I'll be checking out Hobby Lobby for that.  I'm not planning on a mat this time because of the design itself and plan on going with a pretty basic frame.  You never know what I may wind up with though, once I see all the pretty frames in from on me.  This piece took just 49 total hours and it was an easy stitch.




It is just barely the 12th.  I missed the T.U.S.A.L. post by 15 minutes.  Since I'm so close, I'm going to post my sips and bits container anyway.  I've deposited quite an amount of thread this month.  Top view here.


Second picture from the side.  A lot of the thread came from the wedding piece above.



     Bill has been working away at getting some raised beds going out side, and here's a picture I took of him in one of them.  The three good sized new ones are actually finished and filled with beautiful garden soil now. Mr. Bill is a hard worker indeed and loves everything he does.  I am so blessed.


And a picture of the three new beds as well.  You can also see all the big tools, saw horses and things in the back ground.  All that is put away now.


     I've been doing some stitching on my "Quaker Diamonds", and am also working on a knit collard shawl in off white.  Will post a picture of each next post.  I love working with my hands.  My church has just started a prayer shawl ministry and I think I'll be getting involved in that.  If the need is there, and it certainly is, then I want to help out.

     One last thing before I go.  This picture shows what I made up for supper, and it was so very good.  Quick and easy.  Just six ingredients and one of them was just butter.  The other five? Pasta.  Bacon.  Fresh spinach.  A few sprinkles of crushed red pepper flakes and feta cheese added on the top once plated.  So good.

     Until next time my dear friends and followers, I love you all.  Stay safe and come back again soon.  By the way, I have a new follower.  Karen Robinson.  Welcome Karen, and please let me know how I can get in touch with you.  Do you have a blog?
 
     Once last thing! Don't forget to feel the colors.

    1. Hi Wilma!
      Thank you so much for stopping in. We're looking forward to getting some lettuce started pretty quickly now. It's 60 here this morning so we need to get the cold crops in.
      I do agree. Billy is indeed handsome. I've always loved his smile.

    1. Thank you for the comment girlfriend! I think they will like the piece..

      That dinner took all of 15 minutes to fix. If I leave the pasta out, I can whip it out in five, but it wouldn't be all that filling! LOL

  5. I love your marriage finish, Linda! I think I'd like to stitch and frame that for my husband for Christmas. They are good reminders - even 26 years in!! :)
