Another finish YIPEE! I finished JWB's Reindeer Sunday night .. this was a fun stitch, but kinda frustrating at times .. lots of stitch 4 stitches, cut and move on to the next 4 stitches .. but I love the way he looks .. so regal! Will be a nice addition to my reindeer collection *smile*

Thanks everyone for the encouraging words about my finishing I did over the weekend .. I can't wait for them to arrive .. I do hope they like them.

Nancy, that you for the information about the Teacup/Coffee cup pinkeep .. now to keep my eye out for it .. maybe it'll show up on Ebay someday :)

Sue, I love your idea about stitching all three coffee designs on the same piece of fabric .. decisions decisions, and thanks for coming to visit.

Sally and Cheryl, I understand that LHN is doing Tea designs as well as Coffee .. how fun will that be!

Well tomorrow is a big day around here .. more remodeling .. Wednesday and Thursday we're are having more new floors put in .. this time it's the kitchen, laundry room, powder room and Robert's bathroom .. new vinyl floors. And on Friday the new Frig arrives! OMGosh this is a big deal with this family .. we bought this frig back in 1978 and it's still working! Of course I don't think there's a plastic piece inside that isn't broken. We are finally winding down on the remodeling inside .. still have a deck to replace, DH and Chris worked on tearing the decking off last weekend, we know have half a deck and some very confused dogs! lol .. actually all the animals, 4 and 2 legged are confused these days! lol

I'm off to stitch .. something easy .. I'm tired but want to stitch, so I think I'll work on Good Things .. it's pretty mindless, but cute!

Thank you for the comments and nice to see new faces posting ... I do love this blogging family of stitchers :)

I'm grateful for a DS and his friends .. they helped move tons of things today to get ready for the floors ...

I heard about the tea designs from LHN. I might just have to buy one of them for my kitchn when I see which I like best:)

Love the Reindeer. All those JBW Country French designs are cool. I have done a couple of the them as shop models for the LNS. I like the all one color things. Although you might have to do a few stitches, end off and move, you aren't always changing colors.
