The Rose Bowl

Rose Bowl week 1 February
Hello Everyone!

I know, once again, it has been a long time since I have posted. This
Rose Bowl week 1 January
picture of my project for my Daughter-in-Law, Denise, has been stitched exclusively this month. I am completely done with page 2, the right side of the picture and probably have 1,500 - 1,700 stitches of page 1. I have made a great deal of progress on this project. I guess that is the advantage of being snowed in most of the time. I have been stitching as much as I can.  Pages 3 & 4 are mostly the "bowl" part, which is not nearly as wide as the flowers. If you look closely under the full flower on the right side of the picture you will see some yellow-gold thread and under the flower on the left you can see black thread. This is basically the width of the "bowl". I consider it more a vase

than a bowl, simply because of the shape. At the bottom of the picture there is a couple of pedals and leaves.

I have other projects I want to do, some big, like restarting "Life's Little Tangles" and stitching the blue butterfly, both HAEDs. The butterfly is quite small for a HAED. As a matter of fact, it will fit in an 8x10 frame. I also have a project with a saying about friends that I want to do for my girlfriend since we were quite young. We met in second grade. We were in the same class and became best friends for life, quickly. I also want to stitch a project for my bathroom of a cat playing with a toilet paper roll, called "Stop That Cat".

I have some news that is exciting to our family. Sarah found shortly after Christmas that she is expecting her first child. She is due in late July or early August. This means I will have a grand child living near me that I can spoil. It also means that I need to stitch at least a baby announcement. Honestly, the main reason we are excited is because we were uncertain Sarah would ever be able to become pregnant because of surgeries she had as a pre-teen. She and the young man have been talking about getting married for quite some time.

Jack and Chance, Sarah's boyfriend, made Jack and I a new bed platform, headboard and foot board. The platform we had broke. We had a feeling it was going to, so we'd been planning this for awhile, but we ended up waiting until it had broken. It looks very nice!

Well, I need to go shovel snow...we got probably a foot of it starting yesterday afternoon. Have a great day everyone and stay safe in this weather! :)
