Good morning one and all. It is TUSAL time again and my little frog is only partly full. I don't really know why. I have been stitching away.
Here is the little guy this month.
I have done some framing - birth sampler, Snowflake Serenade and Summer Stroll. My photo of Summer Stroll is very blurry but I wanted you to see the beautiful frame.
I went to visit a friend of mine who is a very talented quilter and she helped me make my Jardin Prive into a bolster pillow. I love it.
I am enjoying my 4 day rotation so far. I find that I can actually see some progress at the end of each 4 day.
LHN - Acorn Hill
Carriage Samplings - Petit Samplings Etui
Desert Mandala - all the back stitching on the cactus is done and all the beading on part one.
Day 13-16 - for RR's and any other wonderful pieces I can find.
Next up is the latest RR. This is Sophia's Rainbow. I took a photo of her RR before I add my stitches so you can see the difference once I finish the stitching on it.
It is a Celtic Knot RR. I love the look of Celtic knots but they are not easy to stitch. I hope I don't have to frog this one too much.
I am off to my cottage in Northern Ontario for the next 2 1/2 weeks. It is time for some country living. Our cottage is in a remote area with no internet and extremely limited phone service. I will go into town to the local library to check my mail when I can. I am looking forward to some quality time with my grandchildren, children and assorted family. I have a whole bag full of stitching, my portable Ott lite and my magnifier light to keep my company.
The weather has certainly been the topic of conversation almost everywhere. We have near drought conditions and extremely hot weather with high humidity so far this summer. I hope the weather is a little more normal where you live.
Until next time, stay frog free and stitch happy.
