The latest piece I stitched for the cubby shelf is this one, by the Little Stitcher.
HERE. I stitched this one over one on 28ct lambswool linen using DMC and Artiste metallic floss in Lipstick.
I stitched the words in green instead of the called for brown, because it is a little reference to Greendale. I have been saying for10 years now, "There's no place like home." And I always mean going back to Greendale. It is the sweetest, little village. We raised our three children there. I wish, hope and pray we live there again some day. (I do appreciate the home we live in and the safe, nice community.)
I finished reading Stars Over Sunset Boulevard by Susan Meissner. I really, really liked this one. Here is a review of the book:
Los Angeles, Present Day. When an iconic hat worn by Scarlett O’Hara in Gone With the Wind ends up in Christine McAllister’s vintage clothing boutique by mistake, her efforts to return it to its owner take her on a journey more enchanting than any classic movie…
Los Angeles, 1938. Violet Mayfield sets out to reinvent herself in Hollywood after her dream of becoming a wife and mother falls apart, and lands a job on the film-set of Gone With the Wind. There, she meets enigmatic Audrey Duvall, a once-rising film star who is now a fellow secretary. Audrey’s zest for life and their adventures together among Hollywood’s glitterati enthrall Violet…until each woman’s deepest desires collide. What Audrey and Violet are willing to risk, for themselves and for each other, to ensure their own happy endings will shape their friendship, and their lives, far into the future.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friends. Thank you for stopping in. I appreciate your friendship.
Stitching and praying,
