Been sick but stitching!

Been home with bronchitis since Wednesday, but did lots of resting, and I feel better. On the positive side, the perks--I completed my first finish of the year! And it is one of my 2010 Vacation WIPS--Cabin in the Woods by Bent Creek. It doesn't look like it is much, but there are a LOT of stitches in that piece!! Used a piece of 32-count Cafe Kona fabric and DMC threads. I like how it looks, and can hardly wait to frame it! Hubby likes it too, so we will probably go shopping together on this one.


Now on to the next piece--what SHALL it be?? Been going through stash, organizing and such, and finding charts I won't ever do... so that must mean another giveaway cometh! Have to think of a clever post name, so stay tuned!

Hugs,

Maggee
