Okay, so I couldn't come up with a good title for this post. I feel like most of my followers are from CSF anyways and don't want to overload them with the same info over and over again. But I post anyway just in case I have a non CSF follower out there!

I finally finished Bless this home, its off to be framed now- my DH works with a guy that has his own framing business on the side- this is my first professional framing job and I am nervous, never thought I would have control issues with cross stitch projects. LOL I think it has a lot to do with the fact that if it gets messed up, this is my DH's coworker and I can't very well tell him, "No I don't like it you messed it up now fix it or else bad reviews." Plus I don't get any say so it's all my DH's choose frame...matte etc...and I found out tonight that after I had told DH a few colors that I wanted, he told this guy "It's whatever  you think man, your the framer." BLAH. He has framed something for DH in past his stuff from his diploma and stuff from graduation and it looked GREAT so I am going to relax and see what happens. After all I have told DH that if I don't like it, I will take it out go to a store and we will just be out the money. I really don't think it will come to that though.  Here is a picture of the finished design.

I have finally started my Starry Night by Lady Bug Designs, I have to say that I have been very impressed with the kit I purchased from them. They offer charts or the whole kit, I choose the whole kit since they kit with DMC floss anyway. (when i checked the floss with some of my own stash it matched its real DMC not a DMC color equivalent.) The pattern came on two VERY large pages so I did have to make a working copy which ended up being eight normal pages ( I enlarged a bit). The chart is easy to read too. I grid, and a plus was that they had charted this particular chart so that the middle lines both horizontally and vertically landed on a grid line (hope this makes sense). Made gridding easy!! The only semi complaint not true complaint is that the floss was not separated but I think this was to avoid high shipping cost. I will upload a progress pic of this later.

Still no luck in the baby department, I need to relax I guess its only been a few months but I have always feared not being able to have kids, and now I have become irregular at first thought it was a good thing but 2 negative home test and a negative blood test have me convinced there is something up so going to make an appointment with the doctor...ugh...I hate doctors...hmm a nurse that hates going to doctors something you never see (insert sarcasm).

Until next time!!


  1. Bless This House is beautiful! I can't wait to see it framed. I wonder what color mats the framer will choose for you.

  2. I love your bless this house. I'm sure the framer will do a great job, after all, he has to think ... 'I've got to make a good job of this and get it just right, it's for my coworker' ... So I think he'll make a special effort with it for you.

    Hope all goes well with the DR.

  3. I sure hope the framing thing goes well.
