Well, another week has gone by and I don't have a lot to show for it on the stitchy front.  I've been struggling a bit at work which make it hard to concentrate on stitching in the evening because I am so spent mentally when I get home.  All I want to do is be a cucumber.

I do have a finish to show you.  Alphabets is done!  Here it is in all her color corrected glory! 

Merrily Beams
AVAS 946
32ct Antique White Belfast Linen

She is a beauty!  I am saving my shekels to get her framed!

I also am getting impatient to finish up my craft room.  I have been bugging the DH to hang a curtain rod and put up my shelf for the last 3 weeks.  It will get done in his good time, I guess.  If I wasn't such a chicken and could take the heat from the DH, I'd finish it up myself.  But it's not worth the aggravation and the grief.  My hallway and balcony areas are still clogged up with my stuff.  I really want it put back in the room cause I WANT to use it!

Anyway...I'm leaving you with 2 pics of the real heads of our household,  Sweetie and Livy.



Oh and before I leave, I want to wish all the Moms a blessed and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!  Enjoy your family!  Hugs to everyone!

Beautiful finish! Love your two cats. Sweetie looks like she did not quite approve of having her picture taken!

HA! Shekels! I haven't heard anyone say that in a long time. Your finish is lovely. I like its sharp and crisp lines. Love the birds marching across the border! And of course, it's red. So I love that, too!

What a great finish! I'm a real lover of the reds!! It seems Sweetie is the stair guard, and Livy is the yoga master. Cuties they are!

Love your finish.
I know the feeling about waiting on the husband to finish something. I managed to get mine to do some painting this weekend, but it has taken me ages to get it done.
