After the final touches I hopped in the car and rode into Ottawa to leave the sampler at the framers. That way it will be complete when we return from holidays and I can get it mailed to the bride-to-be. I posted another pic here as well with a closeup of the beads. Originally I wasn't sure if I'd add them but they did make a difference.
I feel much better now knowing that this is completed. I'm quite pleased with it and hope the newlyweds will be pleased as well.
That completed, I spent a small amount of time stitching on Their Song. This one will accompany me to the cottage where I'll have much more time to spend with it. I've kitted up Maple Leaf by Alessandra Adelaide which arrived this week. However since it's being stitched on white I'm hesitant to start it until we return from the cottage. I'm afraid it will end up soiled. So very shortly I'm browsing through my stash looking for some smaller stitches to take along with me.
We are cottage bound tomorrow morning and can hardly wait until we are seated on the dock overlooking Lake Muskoka. This is the weekend of our 10th wedding anniversary and we spent our honeymoon in Muskoka so we intend to celebrate once we're there with a sunset dinner cruise of the lake on the Segwun steamship. It's a fantastic tour of the lake and a view of some of the lovely cottages not seen otherwise.
Here are some photos from our wedding 10 yrs ago. These were not taken digitally and we didn't have professional photographer so the quality is not as good as the ones taken today.
As you can see, he likes to play with his hair colour. Mmmm, maybe he got that idea from someone else!
Since we're heading out tomorrow for 2 weeks I may not be online as much as usual. I am taking my lap top with me and do plan on posting at least once but I know I won't be commenting on your blogs as usual. I'll peek in once in awhile when time permits.
See you soon!
