A finish and Adventures with Aiden

I finished "Strong and Beautiful" last night! It is really much prettier than the picture. The colors are more vibrant. I started my first ornament for the LHN sal. I am doing the red house in winter first. I am going to have to go to the store and pick up a few dmc threads. I have most that I need for the ornaments but there are a few I don't have. I am doing the ornament on linen. Working with linen is a new experience. It seems to be going okay, but, I don't want to jinx myself!

My little Aiden has had a rough two days, mainly because he doesn't listen! He was outside with his papaw and stuck his hands in a fire ant hill! Even though papaw told him not to. Tim grabbed him quickly but he still got five or six bites on each hand. Today I took Aiden to the park and naturally he got very dirty and got me very dirty too. I brought him home and showered him. Set him on a rug and told him not to move because he was wet while I got a towel, and bam! He slipped on the tiles on the bathroom and busted his lip. My poor little monkey. I sure hope he learns to listen or mamaw is going to be completely gray in a few years!
Thanks again to those of you that leave comments and those of you that are followers. Happy Stitching to all!

Some kids just learn the hard way. Fire ants HURT! Your finish looks great.

Congrats on a great finish! Poor, little Aiden - eventually he will smarten up, I'm sure.

Nice finish. Sorry to hear about the little one, glad he is okay. Mine stuck a screw up her nose a couple weeks ago. What was she thinking??

Glad to hear your foray into linen is going well. Your little Aiden is at that age, isn't he? LOL But they're so much fun, too.
