I finally finished Simple Joys before the summer ends. It took me long enough!!! This piece traveled with me to Taiwan and St. Louis and back, and kept me company during the long waits in the airport. Oh wait, now that I look at it, I think I forgot to put in the window frames!!! Oops~ Will add that in tomorrow~~

I did ended up using all the Bean Sprout and had not left a single inch to spare!!! Actually I have like 6 more crosses to stitch on the border when I use up all my threads. Good thing that I kept all my orts so I went digging through my jar of orts and luckily found a thread of Bean Sprout just long enough to finish it up!!!! It was a darker shade but I don’t mind it at all~~ That was a very close call!!!
My favorite color on this piece is the beautiful shades of Plum Paisley~~ The variation on it is simply beautiful!!!
Needles, threads, music, books, a good cup of tea and maybe some chocolate cake. These are some simple joys of my life. What are yours'?
