A Quickie bit of Romance

Here is my latest project--finished in three days--i'll say that is a quickie for me!

It's a Bent Creek design "Rowmance". I like most of their row designs, and of course always love stitching in season! (It was hard to get a photo of the whole thing--you can see my shoes in the above photo)

I was surprised at the colors on this piece, they were different than what I thought they would be from the chart photo. I was thinking greys, but most of the letters are browns and greens. If you Google image search the design their are some cool variations stitchers have done. One of my favorites had tan letters and white hearts and flowers, another had lots of pink flowers and hearts. The only major variation I did with mine is instead of stitching on a tan fabric, I used a light blue.

And i'll leave you with a photo of my favorite little boy. My baby turned one last week. In our family we have a tradition of "baby cakes" where on their first birthday they get a cake of their own to make a mess of. I think more of it got on his face than in his mouth!

Love that design. Seems like the floss colors never match the model photos so well these days. Digital cameras always have such a mind of their own!

Your little boy sure seem to have baby fun with that cake!

Cute stitches ~ but oh, that little one ~ so precious!

Oh, such a beautiful finish. I love the Bent Creek rows, and you are right, you see a lot of colour changes on them when you see them stitched by different stitchers.

I have a picture of my grandson's birthday celebration when he turned one - he was looking just the same, only with chocolate all over, lol.
