Here's the back:
And here's what I'll be wearing to the retreat:
Hmm, I wonder if anyone can tell that I'm excited? ;D
I'm still plugging away on the model, and I have no update on Blue Jeans & Daisies because my off-time this week was spent on the name tag finishing. However, I do have one nice stitchy picture to share:
I ordered these two charts from the A Mon Ami Pierre website on April 4th, and received them today--and they came all the way from France! Jackye also included a very pretty freebie chart; I would definitely recommend dealing with her directly, instead of going through US distributors. Even with postage from France, I paid less than I would have if I had ordered through ABC Stitch Therapy, who carries her designs.
In non-stitchy news, another sign of spring here in NE Wisconsin is that there must be a cardinal nest very near to our house. For the past week, or so, a female cardinal has been attacking her reflection in our living room and bedroom windows. When I Googled this behavior, it said that she is protecting her nest, and that this might go on for some time (probably until she knocks herself silly one too many times!).
Our cats, of course, are really enjoying the show, as evidenced by these pictures of Gracie:
Hope everyone is having a great stitchy week!
