How Time Flies!

112_1264.jpg   112_1266.jpg  112_1267.jpg  I am finding it difficult to believe that my darling daughter celebrated her 9th birthday last week!!  Nine years….. how quickly we have gone from new born babe to toddler to preschooler to elementary school diva!  And while we do have our moments when she is far too much like Mom – think opinionated, stubborn, and determined to get her own way – she has been a delight with her joy in living and endless imagination.  Happy Birthday sweet one!

Time flies too in the calendar world – January is over and a new month begun.  I did very well meeting all my stitching goals this month!  This is my last finish for January – the “small” I started in the second week.  May I present the English Knot Garden Bicornu by Hope’s Dwelling Place?  This is a limited edition kit created for the Swan Sampler Guild in 2007 – my good online friend Cheryl sent this one along to me.  Think loads of backstitching here!
112_12691.jpg 112_1270.jpg  112_1271.jpg  It is 4 inches wide by 2 inches tall.  I did make some changes – I used the coloured silk for the border and Queen’s stitch hearts on the bottom, rather than the vanilla that was called for, as I knew that border would show along the edge.   Remind me to choose something with a little less stitching for the small this month!!
