Random Thoughts Progress

I thought it would be a great idea to take my stitching out on the deck swing for its photo shoot since it's super sunny out today but yikes! The shadows! I do like that you can see the bunny and the tree better. The thread color is so close to the fabric color that they don't show up particularly well. I do like the tone-on-tone look though, so I'm sticking with it. Over on the right you can see a row of Rapid Stitches. A new one for me and not too difficult once you get the first one done. I stitch backwards from most people so when I'm following a stitch diagram I switch everything around. I'm a very complicated lady!

Phil and I worked on getting the B&B set up over the weekend. We have three rooms and a kitchen to outfit so it looks like we have triplets going off to college when we hit the store check out! I'm doing up big baskets of all the essentials the guests will need while they're here and they turned out really cute if I do say so myself!

My order from 123Stitch came today so I am going to rip that envelope open here in a minute and work on Flock Together!
Off I go!

Very nice progress on Random Thoughts! Thanks for the chuckle with your comment about getting "triplets off to school" while setting up the B&B.

Lovely update on your project. It's always fun to try new stitches. As far as receiving a package from 123stitch...I can get quite giddy when they show up. Have a great day! --Andrea

Looking lovely. Random Thoughts is a great pattern to try new stitches in small areas. Happy Stitching.

The B&B sounds wonderful, dear bud. You'll make a superb whatever-they-call B&B madams!

Nice progress on Random Thoughts. I stitched it some years ago and it was such a fun project with all the specialty stitches.
