I Have Fallen Off the Blog Sphere....

But I have put a few stitches on this piece.
My tomatoes are starting to ripen and I have green beans to pick. Most nights I am too tired to think, let alone stitch. This is just a short season and I will be back to "normal" soon.

A Little Stitching

I didn't have much time, but I got a little stitching in. It is going to be a busy week here as my boys are heading back to college and my garden is getting ready to produce tomatoes. Canning season is upon me!

World Cross Stitch Day!

I saw that today is World Cross Stitch Day and thought it would be perfect to pull out my HAED.
It is Reptiles. I will post what I managed to get done in my next post.

Fleur de Lis

I got this section done while watching the Olympics. What are you stitching while you watch?

Starburst with Blue

I like how this is turning out! I need to add the last bit of bargello in the "flames" and the rest of the extra stitches and it will be done. But I must work on things for my local guild. Next week maybe?

Odd Colors for Flowers Of Italy

I am working on videos for my local guild. The red and white perle cotton are easy to film. This won't be done until November.

More Progress on Starburst

Well, here is my progress on Starburst. There are three blues in the piece. I think I am going with the medium blue that is on the top. This has been fun to stitch and a great way to learn bargello. I may get brave and try one of  Lizart 's pieces one of these days.

Joseph Restart

This is a piece I started in January. If I get it done,  I'll have the basic Nativity set stitched.
