Well here is Quaker Welcome with the fabrics I bought:

Good Day all!  My first day of vacation and got a few things done today. I went to get a hair cut first thing this morning then to Bon Ton to get a new bed pillow.  I was just diagnosed with arthritis in my neck and thought I'd try one of those memory foam pillows that take the pressure off your neck.  I start PT next Thursday and thought anything I can do to help!  They were on sale so got 70% off (I love a good deal).  Then off to AC Moore for some floss and home to clean the kitchen (ugh).  I took some pictures of my latest finish The Stitcherhood's Quaker Welcome.  I went to Joann's and got some fabric and now to try to post the pictures and figure out my finish. It is going to be a birthday gift for my sister.

HI there!!

Hello All!  This is a first for me so please hang in there while I learn how to do this. A beautiful day in Christmas City! The sun was out most of the day, hot but not to humid.  It will get worse as the week goes on I'm sure. Nice day for sitting on the porch and cross stitching!  I love to cross stitch.It is my creative outlet and my stress reliever (keeps the old blood pressure down). Unfortunately I had to work this morning but after tomorrow I am off for the rest of this week and next. Hopefully I can get some serious stitching done (along with some house organizing).   I plan on posting my latest finish and my work in progress as soon as I figure out how to post a picture. Off to stitch and practice with those pictures!!
