SAL on the tower

Today was a productive day. Sometimes you just have to relax and today was a day for that. Other than the regular housework and laundry thing...I had a great day.
Thank you all for your comments. I had too much on my plate. I am getting back on track and the Tour des Marques is one thing that was neglected. I managed to put a few stitches on it and I enjoyed it a lot.

The Halloween is a piece that my Mom did and I finished it for her yesterday. I love how it turned out.!!!
I do most of her finishes for her now. It's easier for me here at home. Her room is small so all the finishing supplies are stored here. I laced this and put quilting batting under it and covered the back with Mat board added the ribbon to hang it before I put the back on.

She Hangs these on her door at the retirement center where she lives and people are always looking for a new piece.
It is so nice to hear from you and I look forward to your comments. Have a great day and stitch with happy fingers.

I have to hand it to you, Tour De Marques is a very difficult stitch and it is coming along nicely. The Halloween piece that you and your mom collaborated on is so adorable!

The halloween piece is so nice. I always loved halloween ! I don't think I could do the Tour de Marques: it seems there is a lot of colors changes !!! But it's going to be stunning once it's completed.

How sweet that your Mom does those up for her door at her home! I think that is a great idea :)
TDM is looking smashing :)
I hopeful I'll have just a little house work and then a "down" day as well....well until the big three come home from school and then it is GAME ON as usual! :)
