Finally a Update

I can't believe it's been over a month since last I posted to my blog. With great improvements to my health issues I should get back to regular postings (or I hope so). My blood glucose leveling off and the back issues much improved I'm almost back to normal. I'm still sleeping alot but I think that is because the heat just wipes me out....is it almost Winter?

WIP's....


I am so excited about AQC. Pages 1-5 are now done as well as part of page 6. Not much more to go on it before the finish. I had set a couple of goals that were not met so I just decided it will be done when it's done. You can click on the picture to see more detail.



During our Virtual Stitch In on Sat July 3 I not only worked on AQC but pulled Winter Wingding out of the WIP basket. I did change things up a little and stitched the snowflake with Petite Treasures instead of regular floss. With any luck this will be done sometime this winter but I'm not holding my breath. I did work on a couple of other pieces but didn't scan them yet and since one is a gift I can't share it yet.

I love the LHN monthly ornaments and have all the ones released so far but am so far behind on stitching them. I did do more on FaLaLa and then discovered a BIG goof that needs frogging. I'm not sure if I frog it or just start over.

Finish....

I did finish the stitching on Needle and Thread by LHN but have not attached it to the mattress for a finish. This was really fun to stitch even when the frogs attacked.

Good Ol Summertime....







As you can see Maddie likes the summer much more than her Granny. She is a real water baby and loves getting wet. Her favorite is getting in the pool and playing with her Dad and Brothers.
I hear my pillow calling so I better head off for some sleep.
Until Next Time (which won't be a month away)....Happy Stitching and keep cool

Hi Rene,

Great blog. Love your Quaker Christmas, I am working on that also . Not as much done as you. Will post another picture soon. I just love it. Want to do Quaker Halloween next.

Maddie is so cute, she really loves the sprinkler I see.

Glad you are feeling better.
