Working on My Art Quilt

 I took a little time and pulled out my quilt to stitch. Yes, it is warm here in Illinois, but I put a fan on and plugged away.

I am trying just to enjoy the process.

IHSW for July

 It was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend and I worked on two pieces.

First up, Pour ta Fete:

Here is where I started:

 And here is where I finished:

I decided to work on the alphabets. It made me happy and it feels like I am accomplishing something when I get a letter done.

I also had a finish! Well, not a  fully finished, but a stitching finish:

Purple Mountains Majesty Heart by Gay Ann Rogers. Now I can start the Mystery of St Tropez by Gay Ann with a clear conscience!

Gifted Gorgeousness for July

 Well, I am debating on what to do with this piece:

It is Pour ta Fete by Lindsey Lane designs and I was trying to get to the edge of the top of the piece. I thought I was there as I stitched the Z, but if you look closely at the photo, there are a ton of motifs on the right edge of piece. 

So what would you do? Go back to stitching down and page completing? Or find the outer edge of the project?

Oh! It is July 15 so it is Gifted Gorgeousness SAL Day. You are supposed to post a photo of something that is a gift, will be a gift, has the word gift... You know. It is the brain child of our dear fellow blogger Jo over at Serendipitous Stitching. She will post a link soon, I'm sure, of other GG wonderfulness.

Well, I Have a Little Issue

 I went with my husband to the local Fourth of July celebration and managed to fall and break my knee cap. (My sister-in-law cracked me up by ,her best New Jersey accent, what mafia person I offended...)

At least I did not break my wrist or elbow which was a concern for a bit.

I'm getting some stitching time. I find it difficult to sit still with my knee all bundled up. No surgery is necessary, but I have 6 weeks of this thing. Sigh.

I am trying to finish Purple Mountain Majesty by Gay Ann Rogers. 

My daughter's cat is not impressed either as I dislike all the fur he gets on my cast.
