Wow, I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted. I've been on the computer here and there but not for any great amount of time. Instead I've been working on a few projects and continuing to practice on my dulcimer. Other than that, it's been a birthday week as my Dad calls it. His birthday was on Friday so Katie and I had lunch with him and I later that evening I took him over an apple pie that I had baked.
Then on Sunday evening, the whole family gathered and we celebrated his birthday with his favorite Oatmeal Cake and a yummy ice cream dessert (below) that I'll tell you about a little later.
See why it's called a birthday week. It's the birthday that gets celebrated a few times in that week...and by the way it was a milestone birthday for him....he's 60!
One of the projects that I've been working on is pictured at the very top of this post. I saw the saying a good while back somewhere??? and jotted it down.
So last week, I needed a new stitchery to work on so I picked a font, typed it up and printed it out, traced it onto my fabric and began stitching. Once done I stitched it onto a piece of burlap and placed it in a black frame.
You know, words are not my favorite thing to stitch but I do like way this turned out. Do you see how wrinkled that fabric is? Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
I have ironed it, with steam, MANY TIMES and as soon as the fabric cools it goes right back to being wrinkly.
Well I'm off to get started on our schooling so I'll catch up with you all a little later.
