Guess Who Came to Lunch? And A Finish!

Now the funny part is that my 2 acres are completely fenced (6 ft) EXCEPT the gate across the driveway was open! My 5 yr old grandson went outside and clapped his hands and literally chased them around the house and up the driveway. The deer HOPPED away, maybe bounded is a better word. I have also seen a coyote --and bald eagles fly around here regularly.

mystery fabric
various GAST threads and DMC 833

Here is my eighth finish for 2010. (Many of the projects I share with you were finished in 2009). As I mentioned before, the bottom row had to be left off because I ran out of room. And I substituted GAST threads for most of the DMC.

For some reason I have a hard time keeping track of the fabric I use. I have a fabric stash basket. Each piece is packaged and labelled. But when I pick something to use, well, my brain just disengages. I need to find a better way. Any suggestions?

I love this piece, but have hesitated doing it because I am afraid all the swirlies will drive me insane to stitch! Did they drive you insane? You did a lovely job. :)

Love this design! I was just thinking about this design, and wondering who the designer was!
I'm in the ABC SAL too, but haven't even started. Isn't that pathetic?
I'm glad I found you. I'll add you to the blog roll!
