How's that for a very unimaginative blog title but it's about time for an update and my brain isn't coming up with anything better! While I still have my stitching mojo there’s no doubt that I’m in ‘summer’ mode at the moment. Add in DH having a week off work and while we didn’t really do very much there was some pottering around and pottering around definitely eats into my stitching time!!!
When I have been stitching I’ve continued to work on this one…..
I am hoping that I will have this part finished before the next part is released! There I was thinking I’d have this stitched in a couple of weeks, plenty of time to pick up something else and then go back to this one. Not so!!!! It is coming together nicely though and, alphabet lover that I am, I’m looking forward to stitching the bottom row of letters!!!
Remember I stitched BBD’s Glad Tidings a month or so ago? I sent it to KarenV to finish for me. There is a ribbon trim along the back so this can be hung on a wall (and it will eventually be doing that). I love what she’s done, love the green beads and gold trim that she used. As soon as this one arrived home I asked her to do another one for me so I’ll have that to share in the next week or two.
And before I go….. I have managed to do one of my monthly ‘smalls’. Here is the August pillow from the Nikyscreations Primitive Calendar. Stitched on 32ct lambswool linen and using the suggested DMC threads.
Do you see the little antique button? I received this and several others from my stitching friend Denise and I thought it would work perfectly on this one.
Hope all is well with you and yours. Never mind my blogging, I’m miserably behind in my blog reading and commenting. Hopefully I'll be starting to rectify that soon!
Until next time….
