A finish.......I think ;)

It's been forever since I posted because it's been forever since I've stitched!! Technically I finished Maude Eloise last week when we were away on vacation, but the design is just a tad too small for the frame I want to put it in. So I have to decide if I'm going to have the frame cut down or put a border around the design to make it bigger.


Life has been very hectic and unpredictable and I have completely lost my stitching mojo.
I'm still trying to finish the redecorating of my daughter's room. But paint won't dry when it's 96 degrees with 80% humidity. I'm actually posting while I'm waiting for a wall to dry so I can put the last coat of paint on it. I'm also painting furniture. And of course all of her bedroom furniture is sitting in our living room. So you can barely maneuver around our house.
And to add to all of this my son left Sunday for a mission trip that's 4 hours away and he's been sick since Monday. My husband left a few hours ago to go and get him, 4 hours to get there, then 4 hours to get back. Like I said life is so unpredictable. I'm sure I'll be taking him to the doctors tomorrow. I think he probably has strep throat :(.
We did have a super vacation. Rented a house that was right on the ocean. Gorgeous!! It was so relaxing.
I'm slowly getting caught up on everyone's blogs. Boy, you guys post a lot. I never have that much to say :).

Maude looks great, congrats on the finish. I think the design could definitely handle a border or two without taking away from it. Maybe a single section from the flower pattern repeated end to end. Probably easier then cutting a frame down. So sorry about your son, hope he is better soon. Also hope you aren't stuck watching the paint dry for to much longer. CJ

Great finish, congratulations!

I can sympathise with the paiting, we have just finished painting the babies room, but because it's so cold, the paint just won't dry.

What a beautiful finish! Congratulations. How about having a mat cut to go in the frame?

I go through periods like that where I lose my stitching mojo. I think I get overwhelmed at times when things get too busy. It's been pretty crazy around here too but I'm heading out on vacation today.
Maude Eloise is quite lovely. I think I'd opt for a smaller frame since I hate doing borders.

Hope your son is not too sick. Strep throat, if that's what it is, is no fun!! Hope your mojo comes back.
