Happy Friday!

It's Friday again. Gosh, these weeks are flying by. I can't believe August is half over already!
I finished my stitching Wednesday night and framed it yesterday. I was able to work on it last week while I was working at the shop. Actually I stitched most of it at the shop. Like a lot of my recent stitchings, it is a melting pot of different patterns and motifs. I like the saying, IN VIRTUOUS WAYS I SPEND MY DAYS, and will probably use that saying again. The alphabet is pretty standard and except for the big bird (taken from a Sheepish Designs pattern) the other birds and flowers were kind of half made up, half taken from patterns.

I've seen some nice give-aways over the last couple of days. I mentioned one in my last post, and today I have another one to mention from the sweet and talented Silke Powers. Check out her incredible give-away painting at her blog, metamorphosis. She is giving away a lovely painting to honor her blogging friends and her birthday - Happy Birthday Silke!

Last but not least, today I'm having a 3rd interview. Things are looking good my friends!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and are able to enjoy these last couple of weeks of the summer.

Beth, I hope your interview went well. Thanks for the mention of the Crocs, several others mentioned them also. I'll check them out. Have a nice weekend.

I really really love this one. I was watching an episode of Color Splash on HGTV the other day. He was doing a room that was Danish Modern. He picked out a couple of needlepoint things and I thought of you and your work. This piece reminds me of what he was calling Danish Modern.

Thanks Angela - never occurred to me that this could work well with Danish Modern!
