Quaker Garden - Finished!

Last night I put the final stitches in Quaker Garden - doesn't it look great? I used the recommended fabric and fibers to complete this design. Really enjoyed stitching this one. Thanks Karen for organizing the SAL!



During the week, I also stitched one of the new LHN/Crescent Colors design/threadpaks; it's called Pear and this picture really doesn't do the colors justice (they are much more vibrant IRL!) I stitched it on 30ct R&R Creme Brulee - I think I may make this one into a pinkeep for myself!



Just trying to stay cool here in MN. We've had about 17 days now with temps above 90 degrees; yesterday, today, and tomorrow we're in the triple digits. Fortunately, we have central air, so we are surviving by staying indoors!

Have a nice Sunday - and thanks for stopping by!

Both finishes look great. I have both to stitch...someday. I used Creme Brulee to stitch the LHN/CC Watermelon. The fabric color is so pretty.
Happy Stitching,
Annette

Quaker Garden is awesome! Good job. LHN - Pear is great. Would be a nice pinkeep :D

I have done zero stitching. With DH off for a few days, it was impossible. He went back to work monday (yesterday) & I was trying to get thing out of the closet. What a mess!

The heat index is so high. We have been in for two days now -- some nearby are without power. ARGH.

Taking Tori shopping today -- she leaves on the 11th & needs STUFF.
