Missing...

Sorry for disappearing on you! My how time slips away so quickly!  May has turned out to be an extremely busy month for me; I just haven't had time to post.  Put your seat belt on...here we go!


Later in June I will be attending the Tree of Life Samplings retreat and we were sent pre-work and asked to complete it prior to the retreat. The stitching for my needlebook, pincushion, and scissor fob is all done!  Here are some close ups:



I've also been busy stitching away on a few other projects...


I'm going to need to get busy and do some finishing one of these days.

Here's Chessie and Me Glory House:


And the LHN/Shakespeare's Peddler collaboration pieces that were released at the Nashville needlework market:



Finally, I tried really hard to resist joining the Prim Sister's club through the Country Sampler shop in Spring Green, but after I saw all of your lovely posts of the first project I just couldn't help myself.  I think I'm actually going to have this piece framed.  I really like it!


I've also been working on the over one stitching on I Sigh Not for Beauty - all I have left now is the over one verse at the top and bottom.  I'm not a big fan of over one, so I'm doing it a little bit at a time!  Hope to have it finished by the end of June - that's my goal!

So, that's my update.  I'll try not to stay away so long next time.  If you are here in the U.S. I hope you are enjoying a fabulous Memorial Day weekend with your family and friends.  To all in the military - thank you for your service!
