A second finish for 2009

I am completely thrilled that I have finished Cinderella Sampler by WHS ....So here are a few pictures of the completed piece ........I added our initials and year that we met to the top space.........and the wedding photo... I added our wedding date on the side of the groom! It's my own personalized wedding sampler and DH just loves it!!!!!! As do I !!!!!

My brother's trip was wonderful but too too short unfortunately! We did manage an overnight trip to see his daughter/my niece in California which was so fun! I drove there and he drove back! We did dinner in Santa Monica (I think??) and the next morning we had breakfast in Venice Beach almost right on the water! I got my beach fix and it restored my soul! I do miss the beach but with her in California I foresee many trips!!!! Here's just one picture of the ocean.... . We are planning a quick trip to Disneyland next week so hopefully my niece will be able to join us! Oh and while she was here for Easter she went through my stash and now has more patterns!!!! Her heart is coming along beautifully.........she now has a job so it's a little slow going . Oh and we totally surprised my brother/her father with her being here for Easter!!!! It was a good Easter and wonderful week!!!!!
I am grateful for the joy in my life....
May your needle fly through your fabric.........

  2. Congrats on a great finish and very cool that you personalized it just for you! It's nice you can take a day trip and see the ocean. I just read that no matter where you are in MI you are no more than 85 miles from one of the Great Lakes. NO ocean, by any means....but a beach! LOL
