Kindred Spirits Finished


Hello all!!
In the busy ness of this past week, I was able to finish my Kindred Spirits by Charland Designs piece. I was able to work on it in the car to & from the university on Friday & then on the way home yesterday.
I changed out the green & pink flosses. I recently purchased some floss from an ebay auction & the gal asked what my favorite colors were. (it was a grab bag type deal) I told her greens, purples & pinks. The flosses she sent were perfect for this piece. They were so similar to the dmc called for.
Here is the name of her ebay store:Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.

We got our son all settled in at school. I do believe he is going to have a great year. This school seems to be the perfect fit for him & he & his roommate hit it off great from the very beginning!
Have a wonderful rest of the holiday weekend!!!!!

Shari, Kindred Spirits is beautiful! Happy Dancing with you!

I'm glad your son has settled in well. I know how hard it must've been to see him leave the nest. It's great that he and his roommate seem to be a good match. That will definitely help ease your mind as well.

Happy Labor Day!

Oooh! What a pretty design! Congratulations on your finish. That always feels so good. I completed a UFO of combined stitching and quilting and I still am on cloud 9. Did you see it on my NeedleNecessitites blog?

You are making your own grape jelly??? I am so impressed. I don't think I have enough grapes for that so can I stop in at your house for tea and a piece of toast with jelly? :)
