Life is Good!

Hello everyone!  Life has been very good lately for me but it is also the name of my newest project kit from Dimensions.  I got this for mother's day from my wonderful husband and children and it was the very first mail I received in Kathmandu!

After diligently plugging away at Girl with a pearl I needed to work on something smaller and more colorful so this kit was the way to go. Plus even though I have been reunited with all of my stash and WIPs my startitis was kicking in so bad...

Anyways here is what this "beginners" kit is supposed to look like.

Here is how far I was after a few days of stitching.  I tried to focus on the yellowish green of the field because that is one of my least favorite colors. 

This chart has three language options and I went back and forth between the English and French before I made my final decision.  Also here is more of the wine bottle completed.

Here is where I am now.  I'm getting so close to finishing it!  I just have to do some more backstitch and finish the blue clouds and it will be all done hopefully in a few days :)


  1. Beautiful stitching! This is such a nice piece. I like that you went with the French, it suits the picture so well :D

  2. Thank you! I thought that the wine and cheese goes well with the words in French.

  3. Great kit, what a lovely gift! You are stitching this up so fast.

  4. Thank you! It was a really quick stitch.
