Spring Window Finish


I finished my Spring Window from Ozark Samplers the other day. I had to change the bottom square. I didn't like the colors it was supposed to be and then when I was stitching the bunny...he didn't look like a bunny to tell you the truth. He actually looked like a blob of poop. Yes..I typed poop!!! But I took him to my LNS, talked with my stitching pals and we decided I needed to outline him with 3371 DMC and it violia...it turned into a bunny!! I am so excited!!!

I started reading one of my books tonight for my book challenge. I am currently reading Mr. Darcy's Diaries by Amanda Grange. I have to say this is quite interesting since it is all from Mr. Darcy's view of meeting and falling in love with Elizabeth Bennet. It is really good!!

I started a new cross stitch piece...I can't tell you what it is because it is a VERY demented piece!!! I am not kidding....it is pretty weird. I am loving it!! I did contact the designer because the chart is somewhat hard to read so they are going to send me a new chart!!! Can you believe that??? I am so happy!!!! This piece isn't taking long to stitch up either. So hopefully I can show you the new piece by next week...it is really demented!!!

Spring Sampler is very cute! Can't wait to see the "demented" project.

Still haven't started my reading for the challenge. I'm trying to finish up one I already had started and it's taking me longer than I thought.

Mr. Darcy's Diaries sounds like a book I'd like! I have to start keeping some kind of list for all the books I want to read.

Congrats on your finish, Vickie. It does look like a bunny now. Amazing what backstitching can do, eh?

Your finish looks great! Can't wait to see the new demented piece you are working on. Sounds interesting already.

I love Pride & Prejudice and will definitely have to check out this book. Would love to see things from Mr Darcy's perspective.

Mr. Darcy's Diary sounds great. I've put it on hold at the library. I love reading all the Jane Austen "sequels", although some are better than others.
