Another week, another finish

Apparently whatever Joshua had last week wasn't that bad. He ended up napping all morning, throwing up one more time and then back to normal or as normal as an almost 2 year old is:) By the time Erich got home that night he was running around and playing like nothing happened. He's been fine this week too except for being a bit bothered by new teeth coming in.

Anyway, despite the fact that I'm back at work full time now I managed to finish something else. It's a kit from The Sweetheart Tree, the Berries and Shortcake Biscornu that I got from House of Stitches a month or so ago. Stitching it was my treat to myself for finishing Santa's Magic. The only complaint I had with the kit was that they really didn't give a whole lot of extra fabric. I'm a hoop stitcher and I had to use a 4 inch hoop which meant I had to move it around several times to stitch the whole design on each side. Oh well, next time I'll use my own fabric.

I'm planning to give this one to Erich's grandmother as a thank you for doing some finishing work for me. This is the first time I've tried a beaded seam on a biscornu and I'm really happy with the result. I think she'll really like it too.

Not too much else to report from around here right now. Everything is back to normal with work and daycare going full time now but I'm looking forward to getting ready for the fall holidays. I see a lot of Halloween stuff going up in the stores right now and I'm on the hunt for some kid-friendly fall/Halloween stuff to put out for Joshua. It's so neat to have a little guy around for all the upcoming holidays, makes me feel kind of like a little kid again too:)

Your biscorni is very pretty. I love the colors you used.

What a beautiful biscornu, Sara! I love the beaded edge (I've done it once before and it adds so much to the finished piece).
