Scarlet's Summer

What a wonderful weekend of cleaning and catching up on various projects! It feels good to get things done and be organized (or semi-organized) again.

I have a finish to share with you. My Scarlet's Summer Sampler from Chessie and Me is done! I love how it turned out




I also brought out an oldie but goodie. This piece brings back fond memories of being at the lake with my Auntie Florence. I spent many weekends working on this while at her cabin. It's called You Are My Sunshine and it was designed by La D Da.




That buds on my balloon flower plant exploded this past week. There are many more buds that have yet to open. Isn't it beautiful?







And the hydrangea plant is looking good too!




When I visited the Mad Tatter last week, she gave me this doily. I forgot to share it with you. I love it. (It's done with a Mocha colored thread, but it looks yellowish in the photo, probably due to the green table).




Hope the week ahead treats you right!

Love the Chessie 'n Me piece! My granddaughter just sang that song while strumming my hubby's guitar...nice to know the next generation is still singing it!

My Scarletts summer sampler is beautiful and the way it's finished on the board and in the holder is perfect. Where did you find the board it's sitting on?

The Tatting is amazing and what a gorgeous piece you received, such a lovely gift of time and talent. Mary andRJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Cathy,
Beautiful doily! Cherish those gifts made with ❤️.

Your balloon flowers are gorgeous. Love your latest finish too. I have such a list in my to do pile. Wish I lived by a shop so I would have fibers and fabric at my disposal to touch and choose. I hate always "needing" something when it seems I have tons of stash!
