This and that

Hunter's birthday was a success. Here is what he looked like after enjoying his birthday cake. 3 hours to decorate and 2 minutes to destroy. The party was a lot of fun but a little noisy - 10 children 2 1/2 and under and 20 adults.
Dani, her mom and I made a trip to old Montreal on Sunday. We browsed the old port and had a lovely lunch in an outdoor cafe. We went to a needlework show in the afternoon. We saw some very beautiful work. We saw a couple of pieces we would like to do but there were no designer names with the finished work. One piece was an armchair piece with a needlebook, a pin cushion and a pocket for your scissors. The second was a whitework peacock.

I did some needlework on the weekend. I finished the fortune teller for Mikaela. By the way, when I photographed it open I spelt niece wrong. Nobody caught it. My sister did though. I finished a couple of other small pieces but cannot show photos until sent and received by their owners. I did a small amount of work on the wreath. I will be picking it back up now and hopefully finishing it within the next two weeks. I will do my best to blog this week but it may be limited. We have brought our 2 1/2 year old grandson Jackson home with us for the week. After he went to bed last night I sat for a good hour like a zombie. He is a lot of fun but man, am I tired, when he finally sleeps.

Fortune Teller came out good. It's the first one I've seen. I bet 11 yr. old DD would love one. Is there a pattern for it?
The wreath is turning out gorgeous. I have the info and a pic of Painted Ponies you aked about on my blog.
