Good morning! It's a gray and rainy day here in Northern Delaware. But it sure is making everything pretty and green!
I can hardly believe that I have finishes (!) to show you all! I think it is safe to say that my stitching mojo has returned! :-)
I finished up the Seasonal Celebrations : Summer by Country Cottage Needleworks. I loved it! I can't wait to stitch the rest of the series! I have ordered the frame and I am just waiting for it to come in. I will be sure to show you when I have that up.
My next finish is the adorable pattern from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery called The Bee Keeper. What a fun little stitch. I made it up into a scissor fob. I love it so much, it makes me smile every time I use it! The fabric that it's laying on in the picture is what is on the back!
My next new finish is a freebie from The Sampler Girl called By the Sea. I am a HUGE Jane Austen fan, and of course the sea/ocean, so this is perfect for me! It was a fun and easy stitch. I am still not sure what permanent finish I want to do for it, so for now I have it in a frame that I use in winter.
The next piece, I finished stitching last year. It's August Poppies by Cottage Garden Samplings. I made it up this week. It's not a perfect finish, but I love it! I love the fabric for the back , it looks like some sort of sea creature. :-) I am adding a picture of my summer table, to show you where it is living. :-)
I found a really nice Quilt store and it's only about 15 minutes from my house! Danger! :-) I found some great fabrics to do some more finishing! :-)
My last finish for today is Flora McSample Strawberry Sampler by Lizzie Kate that I stitched several years ago. I am not 100% sure about the finishing but I am trying to not be a perfectionist! :-)
I have several summer pieces in the works and some waiting their turn! :-) I pulled out an old ufo, Strawberry House from Little House Needleworks. I have a couple of other things started too, but I will save them for next week, when I do my final stitch from stash update.
Well, I will leave you with a picture of the our latest trip to the beach. My children are in the center of the picture. It was a gorgeous day!
I hope that you are all having a lovely day!
