A joint project from the early years

Things have been MUCH busier around here than I anticipated. Little Dude is done with preschool for the summer, so most of my time has been consumed by entertaining a 4 year old. Trips to the library and the park, fun activities, playing trains - the days are just loaded. I'm still stitching most evenings, but I know I haven't been posting as frequently as I was for a while there.  My ultimate goal is to post at least once a week.  We'll see how that goes. 

I did go through our stitching drawer a while back and found some pieces I haven't shared on the blog.  There's a couple more of these posts in my draft pile, but here's something from way back.

The Sorcerer and The Sorceress by Dimensions
Stitched from a kit

These two pieces are from our early years of stitching.  Mr. Sweet Pea did the sorcerer, and I did the sorceress (why yes I did change her hair color to a slightly redder shade).  I don't even know if these kits are still available, but we bought these in the craft store.

Our tastes have changed since then, but these have sentimental value.  They were among our very first stitching pieces and there was a time when we both enjoyed fantasy literature on a regular basis.  They're still in the finished unfinished drawer, but perhaps some day they will be able to cast a spell and free themselves.

These are too pretty to be languishing in a drawer. Maybe in a year, Little Dude will catch the wizardry and magic bug and you can hang them in his room. My girls would love them. I would hang them in my office/library!

They both look great. Shame for them to be in a draw. I have a few I don't know what to do with!

What lovely finishes, Jennifer! I, too, think you need to get them hanging up!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh my, Jennifer, both these finishes are looking gorgeous. So sorry for them to have to stay in the drawer again, lol. But understandable when the tastes change ...

What fun that you and your husband both love to stitch--these finishes look great, Jenn! Love how you changed the hair to your color--you little sorceress, you :)

Enjoy the summer with your son--it goes all to fast!

I think that it is great that you and your husband share a common hobby!
You both did a beautiful job.
