St Basil's is finished and framed!

St Basil's Cathedral from Dimples Designs

And it has already left my house! I gave it to Melanie a couple of weeks ago. She had been travelling for her 5oth birthday so she got it a bit late. I think she really loved it, she had been commenting on this design a couple of times but has always said that she thought it was to hard for her to stitch herself.

It was really a fun design to stitch and the colors are so beautiful. I think Terrence did a great job picking them out.

Otherwise I'm trying to recuperate after my MIL and FIL's visit. They were here for 15 days and especially my MIL kept me busy. She loves the shopping here so we so spend a lot of times in stores. I don't know what it is but I just don't get any time for myself or the house when they are here. So yesterday when they left I sat down and stitched for 2 hours and it felt so good. My messy house I can deal with this weekend.

Thank you for all your nice comments, I do appreciate all of them. I'm hoping to catch up on my groups and blog reading now when I have the house back to myself!
