I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

Even More Exciting News...

...Ladybug and Daisy, my blackwork project, is finished...

...and framed...

Here are a couple of close-ups...

The cross-hatching on the petals drove me bonkers.
It was "random" but charted, so I kept having
to look back and forth from the chart to the piece.
I would have gladly paid someone to do it for me,
if I could have found any takers.
I'm elated that this is done!

Here is another framed finish...
Kathy Barrick's Good Intentions

I seem to go a while without any finishes,
then I have a bunch all at once.

Let's get to the pillow parade...

A monthly from Heart in Hand's Square Dance

Bent Creek's Flag of Stars
The trim is not cording, but a braid.

Lizzie-Kate's Buzz from their Spring Smalls leaftlet.
I stitched this a couple of months ago,
and just got around to finishing it.

Here's what I'm working on now...

This is the July monthly from the
Little Dove's Year chart.

This chubby fellow is from Bothy Threads.
The chart is called Jolly Robin.

Here is my start.
It's going to look like a blob for a while.

This is my ANG challenge piece,
due next Saturday.  😄

I got quite a bit done
since the last time I posted.
My revised goal is to at least get
the panel on the right completed.
As I was stitching it,
I discovered that this piece
is not quite as easy as it looks.
But I probably could have completed it
if I had picked it up before last month.
I had all year to do it.

When you're as old as I am
you should stitch what calls out to you,
which is what I've been doing.
Hence, the DNF on my challenge piece.

Well, that's it from here.
Hope your June is going splendidly.
Thanks for dropping by.
