Tiny finish and some hockey talk :)

Just got finished stitching my only finish for the month just a few moments ago. Well, at least I have a finish, so that counts, yea? At any rate, here's a pic and some related stitchy notes. :)

Design: Miniature Heirloom Series Kit Independence Hall (PC-806).

Designer: Posy Collection

Floss: DMC White, 500, 927, 3064, and 3777.

Fabric: Charles Craft 14 count aida in what looks like either a mushroom or dark khaki color

Errata: Kit purchased in a shop in Philadelphia near Independence Hall, November 2008. Beginning stitches were stitched sitting on a bench in front of the Hall. It was really neat to do that and I hope I get the opportunity to do that again soon! :)

I love the way it turned out, although, I wrote myself a note that when I stitch it again, I will stitch the border in either DMC 310, 336, 823, 317 or 413. I will have to floss toss, but I think it would look good with any of those colors, really.

I pulled out Country Cottage Needlework's Bee Pinkeep to work on after this one. It's another one from the Land of Started and Never Finished Projects. Shouldn't take long at all, but it does need to be done. I've woefully neglected stitching up what I have started already and really do need to put a sizable dent in it before I start working and The Hubmeister's map.

Now for some hockey chat! Big Congrats to Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabers for taking the Vezina Trophy Wednesday night here in Vegas. (The Vezina Trophy is awarded annually to the National Hockey League's goaltender who is "adjudged to be the best at this position". At the end of each season, the 30 General Managers of the teams in the National Hockey League vote to determine the goaltender who was the most valuable to his team during the regular season. Before 1981, it was awarded to the goaltender(s) of the team allowing the fewest number of goals during the regular season; now, the William M. Jennings Trophy is awarded under the aforementioned definition.). Quite frankly, I think he more than deserved it, even if it meant Mr. Brodeur walking away without the hardware. (For the record, Mr. Brodeur has four Vezinas so it's not like he's hurting any! :P). Anyway, congrats, Mr. Miller! You did the USA proud during the Olympics and for what it's worth, you made a major fan out of me!

Well, I best be off. I need to clean up my work area before I go downstairs to make dinner. Hope everyone is having a great day!

The Independence Hall miniature looks great! My family & I went on vacation to Gettysburg & Philadelphia 2 years ago and had so much fun touring all the historic sites!
