A Finish and A Party!!

Hi there cloud friends.  I have been really busy.  Much busier than usual.  First of all, we spent a week in Alabama celebrating Hannah's 4th birthday.  Grandpa and I kept her home all week with us plus Caleb was out of school , so it was a busy week of fun filled days.  We live so far from them ,that when we visit we make every minute count.  Needless to say my DH and I came home very tired.  While we were gone, we had some hardwood floors put in our home.  We came home to the great dust bowl.  The floors look great but we have spent every waking minute since we got home getting the house back in shape.  We knew there would be some dust but really had no idea just how much.  I think it was partly because we had them do a stairway that is open to the whole house.
I will do another post to show you my stash.  I was able to get to two shops and added a bit to my stash.  I also got the beautiful frame for my LHN Sampler Houses from Valley House Primitives.  The frame is beautiful.  Now I just have to get my framer (better known as my DH) to spend some time putting it all together.  So I'll start with  some photos of the big party then show you my finish.

 A cake just right for a princess party!!

  Patiently waiting.

 Yum!!

 Now for the presents!!

 I loved this design!! It is a BBD chart, Winter is Past. All the blues are so pretty and look really good in my house.  I did use the charted floss but the linen was Lakeside Linen's Vintage Sand Dune.

These two are well worth 10 hours(total) on an airplane!!!!

Thanks so much for joining me today. Have a wonderful week!
