Camp Conclusions

I finished stitching the birthday sampler on Sunday.

I can't wait for my father's 70th birthday in June. I am so bringing this to the party to put at his place! Funnily enough, the next three birthdays are my cousin's husband, my dad's, and the dude's. I'm sure they're going to love having this one as their dinner place card!

Speaking of my father's 70th birthday, I need a gift. I was thinking of making a scrapbook like I did for my fil's 70th. I was also thinking of doing one of the projects I bought in Vegas lo these many moons ago. I could do the Las Vegas Welcome sign as a keepsake box or I could do the M Designs "Las Vegas tree" (you know those trees--words written sideways, mirror images) and have it framed.

If I can finish it in the next few weeks I can take it to the Strawberry Sampler framing sale.

Let's make a poll.

I completed the stitching on the quaker heart from camp as well. Now to get to the finishing.

You were right about the Happy Birthday thing. It is very cute and you charted it just right.

Both are lovely, you are right time to start stitching again!

I do like your Happy Birthday place card! You used such cheerful colours.

Anna--What's the name and designer of the Quaker heart? I normally really dislike patriotic stuff, but this one is really cute!

The link to the patriotic Quaker heart is in the original post about camp here.

Thanks for the link, Anna. Seeing it completely stitched made a HUGE difference for me.

I see a new project start (maybe even completion) this weekend!

Lovely stitching. I'm going to bring in some pieces to get framed this month, too. Nothing like a good sale to bring in business!
