Here are some of the last few stitching finishes:
Gloria and Pat
started by Aunt Becky in the 80's - finished by me 3/21/2013
This darling little heart was started by my aunt and I brought it back to finish for her. It's so sweet and I'll have to stitch up a few more!!
Another finish for my aunt:

This one is a design that I've had since 1976! It's an historic house in my hometown, Charleston, SC. This designer published lots of lovely charts of Charleston houses and landmarks, and I managed to aquire many before I moved away. (In fact, the pic of Rainbow Row in my header is one of her designs that I stitched twice.) You can view the house and more pictures at the Historic Charleston Foundation site. The house has a red door presently, but the design was charted for a white door. I did a little internet research and found pictures from the 1970's of a white door, so I stitched the white and like the results. May I present The Nathaniel Russell House, located at 51 Meeting Street in Charleston:

2/17/2013 - 7/3/2013
I'm really trying not to add much to my stash right now, but I couldn't help getting these two cuties! The one from LHN is their first design. I couldn't believe I actually found a copy at my LNS recently! Thought I might get them stitched for July 4th of this year, but that didn't happen!
My heart is heavy for the family and the community of Prescott, AZ for the loss of their 19 firefighters. Such a sad event...
