Happy Anniversary!

Good morning fellow stitchers and bloggers!

Today is my anniversary!  Twenty-nine years ago today, my husband made a vow to love, comfort, honor and keep me in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, for better or for worse, in sadness and in joy, to cherish and continually bestow his deepest devotion, forsaking all others, and keeping himself only unto me as long as we both shall live.  We've definitely seen all of the above and still we are together.  Thank you for keeping your promises, Honey, and thank you God, for your amazing gift of my incredible husband!



I've been a busy stitcher this past week.  I managed to work on Friendship Blooms, a SAL I am working on with Babs and Mouse.  Here is what I've accomplished this week...close up...



and the whole enchilada!



I've also managed to work some on my Winter's Majesty.  This is slow going because of the incredible amount of confetti stitches.  You can't see the progress as well as I would like because I've been working on quarter stitches in the center of all those flowers at the bottom and along the sides.  I fear I will be a babbling idiot by the time I finish this piece...but determined I am!!  Finish, I will!!  Yoda, I sound like...get out of my head old Jedi master!



When I can't stand the voices in my head any longer, I pull out Violet's Blue that Mouse sent me last week.  I just LOVE this pattern and it's a joy to stitch!!  Ironically last night I finished the wording at the bottom ...  just in time for our anniversary!!  





And on that note, I'll leave you to the rest of your day, as I'm not sure what is in store for me, but I'm pretty sure I won't want to be on the computer when hubby wakes up!!  Have a great day everybody!!

Happy anniversary! Oh, your stitching looks fabulous. I love the Winter's majesty. I considered to buy it but I waited too long. It is no longer for sale. I planned to stitch it for my sister's 40th birthday. I did the Lanarte kit with Spanish dancer instead and I'm sure it was much quicker to stitch =D
