I love anything creative...I am a busy mom of three (+4 dogs, 1 bird, 1 bunny, and 1 sweet husband) who sometimes wishes I had more time/energy/talent to devote to just being creative!

Row Row Row your boat

I have been on a Bent Creek Row kick these last two weeks. I finished "Thankful Row" and it is now at the framers. Due back to tomorrow, just in time to be on display for Thanksgiving. And I just started this one, "Winter Row", and again I changed the colors more to my likings. The letters were a brown, and I want them to look icy/frosty so I changed them to a variegated blue. The snowmen are also being stitched in DMC silk to make them look extra chilly, and I am going to but some silver thread into the blowing snow.

In between "Thankful" and "Winter" row, I also managed to finish Autumn row. But have not made it into anything, so it may not be part of my Thanksgiving tableau. I still think it is cute though, and the only thing I changed was the leaves. You know the only thing I don't like about these rows? The photo on the chart has so many buttons attached you can't see the actual piece. Sometimes things look better simple (I know! coming from me the queen of buttons, sparkles and bling!)

And this little peice is a gift that just arrived in the mail today. So cute, I think I am going to have to frame him though as he is too big to make into an x-mas ornament.
Well hope your Thanksgiving prepartations are going well. I have house scrubbing to do tomorrow, and then a full day of cooking planned for Thursday. I am excited to be hosting it this year, but am starting to feel a little under the weather. If I can just stay healthy till Friday! Dayquil/Nyquil/Theraflu here I come. And no I didn't get my flu shot this year, and I can already hear my mother and her I told you so. SIGH!

Lovely stitching and good choice of colour change for Winter Row. I stitched Spooky Row last month, it's amazing how quick they stitch up but due to their width it's a little hard to choose a finish for them, I opted for a wall hanging in the end!
It sounds like you won't have time to be ill, hope it's not the flu, if it is tell it to come back at a more convenient time!!!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING ~ hope all goes well
