Tulip finish

Just a quick fly by post to show you a pic of my Dutch Tulip finish. I started this one on Saturday and finished up the stitching on Monday morning. All that remains is to do the final finishing as a small pinkeep or ornament.




I really enjoyed stitching this little freebie and it was a nice break from my other WIP.  I should have an updated progress on Feather Your Nest by the end of the week. I'll try and get it posted before my granddaughters arrive for the weekend. Once they're here, all my time will be spent with them. We'll be celebrating Oceanne's 7th birthday which took place last week. Grandma has a request to bake a chocolate cake!


My floss for Peace Inside was waiting for me in today's mail so I should be able to get back to that one on the weekend.  I had a great time at last night's stitching get together and today's local group. I'm hoping to snap some shots on our next gathering to show you what all the ladies have been up to. 
Happy stitching!

love the tulip Lynn, and I bet you had a wonderful time with the gals stitching. It really doesn't get much better than having friends to share a passion with where ever it may be,,, gazebo/deck/retreat,,, where ever. We won't even talk about that cake subject.
Be always in stitches.

There is nothing quite like a Grandma's cake. Your post brought memories back of the excitement of visiting my Nana who always made us chocolate cake.
