Friday Finish!


This week I have been having more done time and the lyme has effected my joints and nerves, so it is hard to do fine work or things that take coordination or strength, so I decided to do some more stitchery.

This time I went though my old files and found a design I had doodled up, years ago and thought it would be a fun one to try. Of course I had to have a saying to go with it and I found an old irish saying and changed the lines a bit.

I was thinking of making it into a design, I need to redo the original and add the saying. I just have to figure out how to get the font to work in the right size and with the photo since my text program had this font and photoshop does not.

As usual I had to do a flash photo, so it tends to be too dark in some areas and too bright in others. I aged it with walnut ink, a fun piece to give as a gift.

It looks like we will be having some stormy weather this weekend, so no outdoor plans. I am so looking forward to warmer weather and long walks on the beach and lots of paddling this summer.

It's a beauty, Debbie, and I like the Irish saying.
We're having an Arctic Blast this weekend ... misery loves company.
I hope you're feeling better soon.

Cute stitchery. Yesterday was rainy, HOT and humid believe it or not. And today it is still raining but temps are in the 50's today ~ more normal for this time of year.

So sorry to hear about your pain, it can sure drag you down but it didn't stop this delightful finish. I love it.

I am so sorry that you are in pain. This is so beautiful. A great design, a great saying and beautiful workmanship. I am going to have to remember to try to dye with walnuts.

You come up with the most inspiring and amusing pieces. I would love to try stitchery but my hands can no longer handle a sewing needle. A darning needle is the smallest I can go. I actually do darn my socks with a wooden darning egg that has come down three generations to me.

Truly I understand your pain. Two weeks of chilly and wet weather sent me back to the bed. It also didn't help that it has been a year since I lost my beloved sister so unexpectedly.
