Friday Frolicking.... and then nada!

Well, I am sooooooo behind!  I started this post on the 7th March and now it is the 18th!  That is what having a week or so of farewell celebrations when you are made redundant and finish work does to you - puts you totally off schedule!

This is what I wrote on the 7th March:

 Oooh, I never got around to posting the week before last's Friday Frolics and here it is the Monday after yet another FF!  So, you are are going to get a Two-for-One deal today - lol!

Friday, 26th February:
I randomly picked up my America Sampler by Jean Farish.  I am still stitching "America" across the top - one of these days I will get to stitch a State!
Before:
(now I have just added the pics and will continue with the blog post)



After:

Then, the following Friday, 5th March, I worked on my " Measure of a year" by Prairie Schooler, which I have now finished by working on it off and on over the past couple of weeks.






I am so thrilled with my finish and it is now off at the framers and should be back this week!

Unfortunately, the following Friday was my last day at work, so Frolicking of another kind took place - Twilight Music at the Zoo - Bjorn Again!



Then, this past Friday, 18th March, I picked up a mini rotation of three smalls I am doing for various SALs, Blog hops, etc.

Before pic:



After pic:


The Hallowe'en piece is for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL theme of pumpkins - it is a freebie from one of the designers on the Pumpkin Seed Stitchers FB group - Northern Expressions.

The sheep is another freebie, from the Le Comtesse & Le Point de Croix, which you can find here.

The snowman is Snow Mates by Blue Ribbon Designs from the JCS Christmas Ornie Magazine 2015.  This is being stitched for the JCS Stitch along FB group.


Anyway, I am going to stop here, or else I will never get this posted before next Friday - it is already Sunday!  lol!

I hope that you have all enjoyed this post, finally!, and that you are frolicking on.

hugs, Kaye

  1. Sorry that you were made redundant. You should have plenty of stitching and blogging time now. I love your seasonal finish. I am looking forward to watching America grow.

  2. Oh wow, you are covering several Fridays in one post. Not bad, and there is such a lot to be seen Wonderful finish of the Four Seasons by the Prairie Schooler. I am completely fond of Four Seasons designs and will start a new one tomorrow. I don't know that you are also stitching Jean Farish's America Sampler. Isn't it beautiful? I haven't stitched "America" yet, I was so eager to stitch the states that I started with them.
