I just got home from Florida a couple of hours ago, Heidi doesn't know I'm back yet.
Every evening after a day of running around, we stayed home with our feet up and I stitched the whole time. I started the little girl while I was home, but finished her and did the little boy while there. They are just laying under the mat right now. I will frame them and put them in my bathroom with the jumping rope kids. I had a wonderful time and will share some pictures soon.

Oh my gosh!!! I knew you were fast but this is rediculous!!!!! Now quit showing me up mother. I can't stitch that fast at all.

I am glad you are home even though I am very happy that you had a good time with Louise and Ruthie Boothie. I missed you!

Love and hugs ~

Hi Nancy,
Welcome home!
Wow, you have been so busy while you were gone. Maybe I could send a few of my WIPS over there for a quick finish :)
Your stitching is beautiful. I take it you are now well and truly hooked?

Hi Nancy, your stitching is lovely and I just think the little children that you are stitching are darling. You sure are quick!!

Welcome back - hope you had a good trip.

Welcome back dear Nancy - missed you and am so happy your trip was fun. Your stitching is lovely - bet you enjoyed it more than nightclubbing!!!

Guess your next trip will be the big one across the pond!! I think Heidi is busy planning for your arrival.

Congrats on all your recent cross stitch finishes! Heidi is just upset you are faster than her!!! Frankly, I am too!! LOL They are very cute!

Nancy said...

Welcome home Nancy! I'm glad you had a good trip to Florida.

Your cross stitch pieces are so sweet, and you already have lightning needles!

Joni said...

Welcome home, Nancy! You were missed. Now, is it nice to stitch faster than me? After all, I've been doing this for the better part of 30 years! Your little kids are just adorable and I agree with Margaret that maybe you could finish up some of my WIPs, too. Anyway, it's good to see you back safe and sound. I really think you should find something to knit now.... LOL

Hello Nancy,

Good to read you had a great time in Florida. I guess you are addicted to x-stitch now? LOL These children are gorgeous, well done!
Thanks for all your nice comments on my blog, you're so sweet! I had to laugh about Heidi telling you to stop reading ... that's how it often goes!

Have a nice day back home & greetings, Carolien

Hi Nancy, So pleased you had a good time away the photo of the three of you is beautiful. My how quickly you are stitching up those little people. I remember Anne Murray from my younger days, lovely singer. Keep well, Hazel
