Old and New

Recently, I went through my stitching basket and pulled out some small projects in various states of completion. Remem-bear is an oldie that needed a couple more background flowers, which I did while sitting with Phil during his manual dialysis fluid exchanges. The picture that accompanied the project had a pink frame, and I think I would have preferred that; I will have to decide whether I want to paint this one, or leave it as is.
This is the last from a kit of bookmarks. It needed just a few stitches, which I again completed while sitting with Phil. I will finish this by zigzagging over the long edges with monofilament thread, then turning those edges under and straight stitching, again with clear thread. I will fringe the top and bottom edges.
Love Ewe, from The Gift of Stitching Magazine, now has more stitching than when I took this picture. We had a long wait for Phil's pre-op chest x-ray! I have started on the sheep's body.
Finally, here is Stitcher's Tree, also from The Gift of Stitching Magazine. All it lacks are beads. I will dig out my Mill Hill beads and try to find some appropriate ones. This was a fun stitch. Not sure how I will finish this.
Sorry, no pictures of Country Garden. I gave the camera back to Sarah. (If I had a dollar for every time I said that, I could take my family out for dinner!)
