Stitcheries/"Vacation" ending

During the time my DH was in the hospital, I worked on my Polka Dot Girls stitcheries.  Below are 3 of them that I got finished.  I also have 3 more almost finished, but ran out of DMC, so I went to JoAnn's (4/$1) to get that this weekend.  They will be finished soon.  


I also worked on 2 of the Noah's Ark BOMs and this one is finished.  The other one will be finished soon (also needed more DMC).
Since DH has been home from the hospital, I have been home with him and have been working on a couple quilting projects that I hope to get finished soon.  We found out that DS#2 is expecting a girl (yippee!) and I have a quilt started for her.  Tuesday it will be back to work - hope I can remember how to do things!!

  1. Your stitchery is just so pretty - I love the polka dot girls pattern. I posted a vintage quilt on my blog after reading yours - its a quilt my mom made in 1946, actually her very first quilt!
