First Finish of 2013!

I finally got rid of the Dec. header.  And no , our yard does not look like the header! Too bad!  That was a few years ago.  We have had the weirdest weather.  Some sort of inversion layer is over all of Puget Sound.  The days are cold and foggy.  So, tomorrow the SBA and I are heading up to the mountains.  It is suppose to be sunny and warmer up there-go figure!  We are going to drive up to Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park.  If you like snow and mountains, I hope I'll have some great photos to share.
The other night, I finished France F.  I love the way it looks even if I did change many of the colors on the chart.  I appreciated all your positive comments about my changes! We are still on the look out for a good 25 count for the antique reproduction so I stuck in "Meg's Bunny."  It is turning out to be a quick stitch and I am using 36count  Pecan Butter by Lakeside Linen.  I am really liking that linen and the 36 count.  I owe a thanks to Ellen Chester from the blog"With My Needle"who recommended that linen to me. I am already planning my next stitch, "This is the Day the Lord has Made" All the while, I will be on the lookout for 25ct. linen.
I also have  some wonderful news to share with you.  My son and DIL are expecting a baby girl in June!!!!!! This is Caleb's Mommy and Dad.  He will be a wonderful big brother! The SBA and I are very excited and happy for them!

 The house was suppose to be light red but I had so much red, I decided to use gold.

Sorry for the wrinkles! This is the start of Meg's Bunny".  It will be fun to have this out in the spring.
I hope all of you are enjoying a good week-end with lots of stitching!
