The pictures aren't very good . The color of the top mat is a dark plum. The second one that is hard to see because of the picture is a light blueish gray. The frame is an antique silver. I absolutely love how it came out!
I have done some work on LK Halloween DF and the Lord's Prayer, I will post a picture later in the week.
This weekend I went to a wedding in Yorktown Virginia. It was a big wedding and was absolutely gorgeous. I ended up having to babysit one of my boyfriends friends. That is a long and funny story I will tell that another day for a great laugh.
I also have great news!!! My boyfriend has decided to let me have my very own Playroom! (Craftroom) And that is thanks to Cindy because I showed him the pictures of her room and he decided I could have mine too! We have removed everything from the room and have started to sand the floors, by the end of the week I will be able to paint (already have it). I will make sure to update with pictures on how that is going. If I were to take a picture right now you would only see a cloud of floor dust from the sander. I should have taken a before picture but my boyfriend decided to surprise me when I came home from shopping today by starting early and getting a lot done.

Anyway... on a stitching note. I made some progress on the lord's prayer.
It looks like I'm stitching weird because I am working downward but the pattern is separated in pages. So I decided to complete one page at a time. I also forgot to show my progress from my Friday night SAT. I worked on LK Halloween Double flips.
I also lined the inside of Milady's Acorn box! I decided to use card stock to wrap the fabric around because it was a paper mache box. I liked the box it but it is lumpy on the inside and I thought it would make it look a little bit better. Just my opinion. The pictures don't do it justice but pictures never do.
Well tomorrow I am gone all day to class. Be back in a couple days :( Hope everyones week is going well.

I also started a new project since I finished my Acorn Box; called the Lord's Prayer by My Big Toe. Here is what I have done so far. It is over one on 32 count and zoomed in ALOT!
I am specifically doing this piece for my boyfriends mom. His dad asked me to stitch it for her and it is going to be a surprise. I have never given my stitching to anyone and I think I'm going to have a very hard time parting with it because it is such a big project and so much work is going into it. UHG.. I need to get over it! Hmmm... maybe tomorrow lol (doubt it) :)

I also finished the last row of my alphabet (for the second time). I think I'am cross eyed now. It was easy to cut the threads and pull then to the sides but re-weaving them was very time consuming and not very fun. But I finished and the rows look awesome. I wish you could see the detail. Even though I have a very nice camera it still won't capture the smaller details.
Now, snack time!
