Waxing Moon Designs Finish

Worked on a happy design this week by Waxing Moon Designs.  This is the second time I've stitched it.  First time I did it, I gifted it to a neighbor in the apartment complex I was living in at the time.

Will frame it.  Not sure what color frame I will use.  Suggested frame was a yellow and white one.  Am thinking I will frame without glass with this one due to height of yellow button.

Fabric, SSS thread and the buttons were supplied with the chart.  Did make a few changes.  Used WDW Moss for the flower stem and leaves.  Used SSS Berry Medley for the word My.  Also stitched using two not three strands of thread as suggested on the chart.

Have pulled the following charts and will be pulling the threads and preparing the fabric.  Would like to work on these.

Also want to pull a Diane Graebner chart (not sure which one) and kit it up.

In other news...

It's a fall day here.  Awoke to rain and gray skies.  Leah is napping by the front window.

After working a bit in my sewing room, will stitch for awhile.  Joined a book club.  Never been involved in one before.  Will see how it goes.  Have been assigned an interesting book written by an Iowa author.  The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid: A Memoir by Bill Bryson

For a smile...
