Oh my, it has been a long time since I last posted. Where does the time go? Granted, we've had a busy spring with a graduation and all kinds of grad parties to attend. I hope things will start slowing down a little bit soon! With all of these parties and other activities, I haven't done very much stitching lately.
I have stitched a couple of hardanger doilies; this is my favorite pattern which I acquired several years ago. I copied the actual doliy that my cousin had obtained while traveling in Norway. I only have a picture of this one - forgot to take a photo of the other one before I gave it away. The filling stitches do not show up real well against the green background fabric, oh well....
And here are a couple more completed blocks for the With My Needle A Token of Friendship project that a group of us are working on. These blocks are for Chris.
The first block for Jackie is started:
I've completed three sets of blocks (two-each) for Joan, Jill, and Chris. I still need to complete Jackie's, Lori's and my own by our mid-August deadline.
I am looking forward to July. Want to know why? Joan and I are heading to the Silver Needle to see Barb and Alma from Blackbird Designs. We had so much fun at the Stitchville retreat in April that we had to do it again. The bonus is the trip to the Silver Needle. I have never visited their shop and can't wait to see it. Anyone else in blogland going to attend this event at the Silver Needle?
Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day in Minnesota - we could use a nice day. Last week some terrible storms ripped through our state, killing three people. It sounds like there is more rain and stormy weather coming in the week ahead.
