Whatcha working on?


What are we working on, on Wednesday?? My blogger friend Leslie, over at 'My Country Home" started this, as of today....so I thought I would join in.....

Today is mellow....it's a bit cooler and damp, and we've just had some thunder and some rain showers....so any plans I had of working out in my little garden will not happen today.......today I am going to sit in the living room, with a cup of tea and work on my Anne of Green Gables cross-stitch. This is a project I've had on the go for a long time...and it seems lately that I have precious little time to sit and stitch on it. I love this piece, it's calming and peaceful for me to work on it, and I can't wait to get it finished and framed. Yes, I could be working on countless other things around the house, but today it will be Anne with an E...LOL Have a great day everyone and I hope lots of people show us what they are working on!!

Marion,
That is so pretty! I can see that it has taken a long time to get this far. One day it will be done and then you can really appreciate all the hard work you put into it!

Where did I see Anne this week? I saw a poster of her! Where was it?!!! Did I dream it? LOL I keep seeing myself standing in a doorway...the door is to my left and I peeked back in and saw the poster....I think it was at the Thrift Store!!!! I remember I took a second look, thought of you and smiled. :) I always loved Anne Of Green Gables. I saw the movie before I read the books and just LOVED it!

Thanks for particpating in my first "Whatcha Up To Wed" :)

Marion, thanks for stopping by my blog. I have done cross stitch before, I made my kids stockings doing it, I know how much time it takes and work it is, you are doing a great job. Can hardly wait to see the finished product!

Needlework always amazes me. I have never had the patience for it and I'm afraid my eyes aren't "needlework material". They get tired very easily.

Your Anne with an E is beautiful!
