A Lucky Day!

Stitching has been at a minimum this week but I did pick up my framed TW. and I'm very pleased with the results.

I've taken a bit of a break and I'm pretending I'm on holidays....a long one ....now that I'm retired.

I've been Gardening , golfing and Lunching.

So far so good.
I have done a bit of stitching in the evenings and I will post them later this weekend.

Have a good "Victoria Day" long weekend those of you that are here in Canada.

Take care and stitch with happy fingers.

What a gorgeous bit of framing. You did a wonderful job of picking out the mating,etc. Enjoy your retirement. You earned every day of it!

Your piece is just stunning the way you had it framed up. I have a friend who started this piece ages ago and stopped working on it. I'm going to have to send her a link to this post so she can get inspired to pick it back up ;)

You did a wonderful job stitching my favorite TW pattern. And the framing is beautiful. You must be very happy with it.

Your TW looks wonderful in that beautiful frame. Well done!
I am glad to read that you are having a good time playing golf etc.
About the mailart (thanks for your nice comment!): you just make it the size you like and I think as far as it is within the standards of the mail company in your country, it must be o.k. I buy a card I want to send and then make the envelope around it. It is fun to do. I have done it twice now, both times being an exchange of the web stitch group I'm participating in.
Have a great weekend!

Hugs, Carolien

What a pretty finish. The colours are so soft and it has a lovely romantic look to it.

It looks awesome framed, what an accomplishment. TW's pieces are so gorgeous, but with all the blending and confetti stitches are really a challenge. Glad you had such a good time and turnout for the concert in your earlier posting as well.
