  1. They are both so cute !!!

  2. Such sweet new stitches Lori!! I am especially fond of “My Threads Are Cut.” I love the framing too.... I am making good progress on Salem Village (well, “good” for me....I tend to stitch somewhat sporadically...) and have not given up hope that Peter might find the wood necessary for the awesome frame you used for your model of it. Happy FriYay!!! ~Robin~
