Friday Finish

Had a great Easter and hope you all did too. Took a family picture so I wanted to share with you.

Starting on the left in the green shirt is my nephew Austin, my dad, nephew Zane, mom, Cory, Dustin and I, and standing up is my brother Ryan and his gf Rose.

Took a class in a group and am learning new dying techniques. These are using acrylic paint. Its fun and easy and a great way to use different colors and get different effects. I didn't have much time but plan on using this technique again.

This one and the one below are using the same pattern. I did the top one first then took the one below and put it on top. I like the bottom one better.

Wasn't real sure if I liked this purple one. When I was doing it it started to storm and the room got dark. Looked great in the dark but splotchy in the light.

Here is what it looks like with something stitched on it. I think it turned out really nice. I found this chart on a blog. The chart is designed by Barbara Ana. This is the blog I found it on...

In case you are wondering, I didn't get it finished in time for Easter, lol. I'm always a few days late.

Excuse the Pictures

It is a partially sunny day today so the pics are a bit shady. I tried taking them in other places of the house and its too dark :( SO this is what you get :) Oakhaven's Owl SAL is now up to date :) Looking forward to seeing what the other months hold. And Novalees SAL is all finished. I changed it up just a bit and added the year to the bottom. The original had some scroll on it. I love it :) Need to look for a frame so I can hurry and display it.
That's all for now. Doing little housework today so I can stitch and have me time.
