I only stitch on days that end in "y".

My PS summer sampler is finally finished!  I'd like to stitch at least another from that leaflet but since I have other wips waiting for my attention (and another model on its way that will take priority), it will have to wait.

Speaking of wips, I went back to work a bit more on my LHN Family Sampler.  I decided to change the color of the house to look like the house we built in MI years ago.  Seemed like a simple enough idea, right?  lol!  You wouldn't believe how I've agonized over getting the colors just right....and that was just for the roof colors!  The chimney is a slightly different color from the house (unless I decide against that idea.  I decided to leave it bland and pull a "Scarlett O'Hara"---I'll think about it later.).

Anyway, here's how it looks so far:

I'm about halfway down the roof....and looking forward to stitching the actual house part.

DH and I found ourselves alone part of the weekend (DS was away overnight on a retreat with one of his school clubs) so we actually ate out followed by a movie (Act of Valor).

I hope everyone enjoys their week.  :-)

Congratulations on the wonderful finish. So will you be having it framed?

Family Sampler is progressing beautifully. Look forward to seeing the colours you'll be using for the house.
