A Room With A View

This was the glorious sight that I woke up to this morning. My husband and I are enjoying an anniversary weekend in the Smoky Mountains. We rented a cabin and are just resting and relaxing for a few days.

I also wanted to share some customer finishes. First up is Snowflake Serenade by Country Cottage Needleworks stitched by Linda. She normally changes fabric colors when picking out supplies for her projects and this was no exception. The linen was changed to Lakeside Winter Sky. I think it gives the piece a wintry, shimmery glow!

Next is the first two designs in the Calendar Cover series by The Drawn Thread. These have been stitched by Barb. She decided to not make the calendar covers but pop them in and out of a single frame. Can you blame her? Who would want to put these lovely designs in their purse? I think Barb did a fabulous job and they will look great in her entryway display.

Barb also stitched Every Heart by Shepherd's Bush. This is the first design in a new series of Christmas Hearts.

That's it for now. I see a steak for dinner and a soak in the hot tub in my future!
