~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends & Happy Friday!

Here is a lovely, ~*Friday Finish*~ to share with you...

Maureen stitched beautifully to create her own finish of my ~*Freebie Bunny Sampler*~.  It is delightful!  She told me she normally doesn't stitch on Aida, but she stitched this while riding in the car... and if you have ever tried to stitch on linen while traveling, you know how hard that can be.  Aida or Linen... it is a wonderful finish!

Maureen has lots more sweet little stitches on her blog.  Click on her name above and give her a visit.

Thank you, Maureen, for stitching and sharing!


Today has been a busy day.  It started with a short road trip with my sweet SIL, Robin, to check on our booth at ReRun Consignments and Mall.  We were happy to see a few items have found new homes... and are still excited about getting more things finished and stocked up.

If you are near Council Grove, Kansas... stop by!

After returning home, I picked Trinity up from school early so we could get to Topeka in time for his first piano competition.  He has been in one recital... but not a graded competition until today.  He was very nervous, but did an awesome job... receiving lots of praise from the judge and scored all A's and B's... mostly A's.
He was just practicing in this photo... but look at that concentration!

Before returning home, I stopped by a few shops.  I found some great upholstery fabric scraps and some small wood pieces for re~do.  I'm dying to get back to painting & re~doing more pieces... but must finish some cross stitches first.

Now that I'm back home... the remainder of my day will be filled with stitches.  Last week I thought I had the pattern for the Prim Sister Club finished... but Jeanne & I decided to take a different approach at it.  So my next pattern IS now charted up... and almost completely stitched.  If all goes well... it will be constructed and photographed this weekend... and emailed to Jeanne by Monday.  

The other pattern that I did first for the club will be a regular release... once I'm caught up.

The weekend will be filled with stitches... and more stitches... and hopefully some paint!  I'll have my shop open tomorrow for anyone wanting to visit.

Wishing you all warm smiles...



  1. Trinity looks very focused. Glad his competition went very well.
    Can't wait to see the new prim club piece and the design that was side tracked for a reg. release. Happy stitching. Nan

  2. Beautiful finish. Trinity does look so serious and I bet mom is proud as she should be.


  3. Trinity is growing up to be an amazing person! :-) Cute finish by Maureen! Happy to hear that Reruns is doing well for you and Robin! Looking forward to your next release! Have a great weekend!

  4. Nice finish! I can understand....when I go with John in the truck I can cross stitch or punchneedle ONLY when we are sitting still!
    And way to go Trinity! Oh I can still feel the stage fright whenever I had to perform!
    Enjoy your day Betty....wish I were closer so I could visit your shop in person! I hope to get some more sewing therapy today!

  5. Trinity is very handsome and focused! Those competitions can be nerve racking. Good for him!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Yeah for Trinity. What a sweet picture.
    Hugs :)

  7. I never understand your few comments because I think you have one of the best blogs in cross stitching. I just wanted you toknow.

  8. Trinity is growing into a fine young man...I'm sure he makes his Moma proud!
