Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Gosh! Golly! Gee! I'm A Going Crazy!!

Hi everybody! Can you believe that I still do NOT have the Erica Michaels piece stitched for my husband. AND OUR ANNIVERSARY IS IN TWO DAYS!! AAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!! So what the heck am I doing on the computer then? Huh? Well, taking a break. I am not a slacker. Just a busy wife and mom to three teens.

Hooray for Catherine !! She guessed what I aim to do with that red yarn. I gave clues to anyone who left questions in the comments section. She kept responding, so I kept supplying clues. I spotted this months ago. I knew I would use it for our upcoming 20th anniversary. ;) Pictures will be coming soon! I plan to make a little something for Catherine. Thank goodness she is willing to wait just a bit.

I wanted to show you this.


Excuse the glare. I stitched this and had it framed 20 years ago. I gave it to Brian as a wedding present. Our colors have changed over the years. When he painted our bedroom 4 years ago, he lovingly painted it the palest pink. Well, he absolutely, positively insisted this still hang in our bedroom! Oh my does it ever clash, but oh well, he does cherish it. ♥ I do not own the pattern any longer. I do not remember the designer even.

Must go stitch now friends! Have a great night.



Stitching and praying,
Vickie

I really love what you're going to do with your red yarn! Wow, what a great idea! You are so sweet, going all out for your anniversary! lol about your old anniversary present clashing with the walls. So what? I agree with your DH -- it has to be out and celebrated! Good luck with the stitching!

So special that your husband cared enough to want your stitching to continue to hang in your bedroom, he's a keeper! Happy early Anniversary!

I had a book that contained that pattern and several others with those bunnies many years ago. I can't remember the name either, but I'm sure it was a Leisure Arts booklet. Happy Anniversary!

Oh what a great idea for the yarn :-) Your wedding stitching is lovely.

Catherine said...

Happy Anniversary!! Love what you are going to do~ looking forward to seeing your version and reading about your husband's reaction! I love your bunny piece and think it is the sweetest thing that your husband insisted on keeping it up! For some reason, the name Alma Lynne popped into my head as the designer, but not sure if that is right, I'm pretty sure she was known for those bunnies.

Oh, how pretty they are, your two rabbits. Happy Anniversary today. Your husband won't mind getting the anniversary gift a couple of days later, I'm sure.
