Well, I think I need to get something else finished from my stack of WIPs. There is no way that Pour ta Fete will get done any time soon or Alice Ellen Usher. But maybe I can get this piece stitched before the end of August. It is a gift for my son and his birthday in in September...

I should have marked on my calendar when I started this...Wait! It was June 21, the Longest Day of the Year! Duh.
Here is where I was on June 25
Yes, it is upside down. That is how I stitch big pieces. So, I was planning on finishing a page and then moving to next one across the top, but decided to stitch the top alphabet all the way to have a feel for how long it is.
Here I am today:

I was going to join Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching for her Longest Day Stitching Marathon, but life has happened. But I did start a new piece! Surprise, surprise!

This past weekend was the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend which takes place the third weekend of every month. I forgot to take before photos, but here is my progress on my pieces:
Start Each Day with Coffee by Stitched Stories-I managed to get a few word done.
Purple Mountain Majesty by Gay Ann Rogers. I am trying to get the tent stitch done around the words. I think I may focus on this piece in July.
Pour ta Fete by Lindsey Lane Designs. Sorry for the wrinkles. I think I hit the bottom! I have gotten back to the top alphabets.
What did you get done this weekend?

Well, the summer is going by quickly. My college aged kids came home for a visit and I have enjoyed having them here. But it does add extra laundry and cooking!
Gifted Gorgeousness is the brain child of Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching . Just post a photo of something that is a gift for you or a gift for someone else. Lots of fun!
I have been working on Pour ta Fete a little each day:
I also have almost finished Peacock Sampler which was an unfinished piece I picked up from a stash sale at my guild:
It just needs the date placed on it. Not sure how I will finish it, but I do love it!
Also have been stitching Start each Day with Coffee from Stitched Stories:

What is the TUSAL? It is the best stitch a long! The Totally Useless Stitch a Long is just a monthly photo of your orts on the new moon. What are orts? They are the bits and bobs left over from stitching and quilting and crafting.
Here are my two ort containers:
Fiber Talk celebrated its 500th show on Sunday. Lots of interesting guests and beautiful patterns. Go take a look!
