Howdy friends! How was your week? Mine was filled with rain and thunderstorms, plus I made a quick trip to Grand Rapids, MI for a business meeting. Never a dull moment in my neck of the woods!
Two more squares complete - yahoo! I may actually make the August deadline. If you've dropped by before, you know that I am working on this project with a group of friends. I am stitching two squares each for Joan, Jill, Chris, Jackie, and Lori, plus two squares for myself. Finished up Jackie's squares this week, now I just have to stitch Lori's squares and my own. The pattern is from With My Needle and it is called "A Token of Friendship." These are Jackie's squares:
I also think I need to have my head examined. I started a new project last weekend; just couldn't help myself! I had the itch to stitch this design and picked up the fabric when I was at Stitchville last Saturday. The pattern is Loose Feathers #3 and it is called Evening Shades the Garden. The fabric is a really soft yellow (it doesn't look yellow in the photo though, sorry.) As you can see I have most of the outside border stitched and most of the alphabet. I'll start on the flowers next.
I went searching for this pattern after seeing it finished on Irma's blog. Irma hasn't posted for a long time; I really miss her posts. She was always working on projects that appealed to me and she had a real talent for photographing her finished pieces.
We were going to go up to the lake and try to spend some time cleaning up the yard, but we've had so much rain lately that we decided it would be a wasted trip. Hopefully it will be drier next weekend and then we can get the lawn mowed and do some trimming and then maybe have some time left to enjoy the cabin and the lake!
Hope you all enjoy today and the week ahead. Thanks for stopping by!
