Busy, Busy Dainty Fingers

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I have been busy all through this Covid-19 stayputness - stitching! I admit, I stitch a lot and try to stitch some every day. So I thought I would share some pieces that I've finished, well, not fully finished so I can display them.

 This one was just perfect for this time! Quarantine: Stay Home and Stitch.
 I'm a member of lots of cross stitch groups on Facebook and someone mentioned it would be neat to add our initials, the year and a little cross to show this piece was stitched during this Covid time. Above you can see my little cross!




 The designer of the above and below snaps is Waxing Moon and they have a series called 'House Trios'. The above is called Summer House Trio. The middle one has my little cross on it.


Guess what this one is called? Right! Spring House Trio and the first house has my little cross on it.
 Here is just a little cutie and I can't remember the designer...oops!
There's my little cross!
 I just love this one! How sweet with all of the little sheep!
 There's my cross!
 Just so sweet!
This one is from our fellow blogger, Priscilla Blain, who has now become an amazing cross stitch designer! 

Well, I have done other things during our lock down but stitching has been a big part of it!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
 
Let's Lock The Door
 
 Let's lock the door and throw away the key now
(Shom dooby-dum dooby-dum-dum)
I can't wait to kiss you (oh no)
One little minute more

We met at a party last week
And the moment your eyes looked into mine
Right then I just forgot how to speak
And the soda started tastin' like wine

How I wished everyone would go home
So I could say when I got you alone

Come on now
Let's lock the door and throw away the key now
(Shom dooby-dum dooby-dum-dum)
I can't wait to kiss you (oh no)
One little minute more

We started to talk and you smiled
Sorta like you knew the way that I felt
You moved a little closer in a while
Then I knew my heart was startin' to melt

There was just so much I wanted to say
But all the words came out this way

Come on now
Let's lock the door and throw away the key now
(Shom dooby-dum dooby-dum-dum)
I can't wait to kiss you (oh no)
One little minute more

Ah no! Oh yeah
No! Oh yeah

I'll kiss your lips like a kiss oughta be
And then I know you'll be sayin' to me

Come on now
Let's lock the door and throw away the key now
(Shom dooby-dum dooby-dum-dum)
I can't wait to kiss you (oh no)
One little minute more
