Remember GiGi?

     Months back, I had finished "Gigi's Garden".  While working on her though, she was renamed "LiLi".  The beautiful young lady that she was going to, who by the way, will be my daughter-in-law come May, renamed her.  Well! I saw a picture this morning of LiLi, with the frame that my son made and painted for her.  She is all hung in her new home and being loved.  Here she is. Now


I have to admit that the linen isn't perfectly straight.  I struggled to no end to get it perfect but failed.  I learned about the Hardanger on this piece.  Figured it out myself and did it and redid it time after time until both sides matched.  She was then mounted on the material covered foam board and sent off to NH.  Lisa loves the fact that she isn't perfect! How about that?

     I want to bring to make sure to mention my latest new follower! Check out  Acorn to Oak.  Oh my goodness! This lady does beautiful work.  Fantastic shawls.  Check her blog out.  She's as sweet as can be by the way.  Welcome aboard!

     Bill has been working on three new raised beds in the back yard.  Some good garden soil will be delivered this week.  Very excited about this.  This does make me remember though, to ask that you keep Bill in prayer.  We found out that he has a bit of prostate cancer last Friday.  Today is the bone scan and come the 15th., we'll be seeing the doctor to discuss treatment options.  This is in the beginning stages and God is a great God.  This is very curable in this early stage.

     I've been busy with the cape that I just started as well as the wedding sampler.  Sampler is worked on during the day when the light is the best, and knitting is in the evenings.  Will have pictures of both projects on my next post.

     Until I post again, ya'll take care and be safe.  Enjoy all the things you love and "feel the colors".  Love you lots!

  2. Lili looks good in that frame. I keep looking at the wonderful framing and the beautiful stitching! And you taught yourself hardanger! I've been wanting to learn that, and may have to follow your example.

    1. Cathy~Thank you so much for the comments. You go for it girl. Since I've done LiLi, I've been noticing all the Hardanger projects and they are beautiful. The work with it in this piece is just a simple pattern, but I enjoyed it.

      Also Cathy. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. A bone scan came back looking great, so that was certainly a blessing.

  9. I am retiring in 78 days and I know that I will have a lot more time for crafts.

    I am sorry to hear about your husband - glad that the scan was negative.

    And, I totally agree with you about Acorn to Oak. I can't believe the shawls she knits.

  10. Hi Carol~I am so happy that you're getting ready to retire. I've been retired for close to 10 years now and I have never once wished that I was still working. I've known people that say that they're bored, but I have way too many pretty things to make and do to be bored.

    Bill has decided to have surgery and I fully support his decision. I'm sure he'll do good.

    Thank you so much for your visit.
