Back from the framer and a finish!

I hope everyone had a good weekend!

I picked up Sabrina by Mirabilia from the framer on Friday and she turned out wonderful! I had forgotten how big and absolutely gorgeous she is :) The first photo has a little bit of afternoon sunshine on it. I stitched her on a pale-pink linen. Cameo Rose maybe?

Close-up of the frame:

Last week I finished Hillside Travelers by Little House Needleworks! While stitching along last Monday, I realized I was not going to have enough thread to finish it, so I placed a quick order on Monday night to 123 Stitch, and my thread arrived on Thursday. If you ever stitch this design, I would recommend ordering two of Forest Glade by Gentle Art Sampler Threads. I did not have enough thread to finish the bottom row of green below the white bunny.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
