Not Laboring

Happy Labor Day Monday, all! I'm sad to be going back to work tomorrow, because I have had an excellent time visiting In Stitches, where I picked up framed Liz Easdon and inspected all the new stuff from market, went to a feast at my sister's house and spent my remaining time stitching (and gave the house a quick once-over).
Believe it or not, I have not bought anything new from market yet, although I've got plans to pick up several pieces, probably on Stitch Night this Wednesday. There are a half-dozen new things I'd like to stitch. In the meantime, I put some time in on "Peaceful Paradise" and a couple of other older things that I'll show you when I've made some more progress. I'd like to move several more projects out of the project bags by the end of the year.
Here's a close-up of the section I've been working on.
Liz! I'm so pleased with her!
The frame is exactly like the one I used last on Catharine McNeal, except that had a teal and gold wash. This has just the gold wash over the wood frame. And I dropped off Blessings Be Thine to be framed next.
Pink is a little disappointed that I'm heading back to work tomorrow--I brought home a trunkful of brand-new hay and I spent some extra time with the bunnies. Pink: "Back to the grind."
Happy week, everyone!

I can see why you're pleased with the framed Liz. Perfect. Peaceful paradise is sooooooooooo nice. I really like the fabric choice - a little darker than usual? Very nice thread contrast.
