Yesterday was the Longest Day SAL merged with IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend).Longest Day SAL merged with IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend).  I managed a whole 3 hours.  Not so great but I did get a fair amount of the blue face done.  You see a dark swirl - I did that in a darker blue purple shade just to mark it off.  After all the tent stitches are done, I will do the swirl and it will cover any missing or "base" stitches.




my blank large blue face (on top)
need this to place the whiskers later


And now you can see the facial stitching.
The white outline had been done a few days ago.
So had the gold on the middle cat.
I'm doing tent stitches for the faces because my kitties have very short hair on their faces.



And to remind us, despite the rain
it really is summer

Not a lot of change but the word is complete


JULY is done except attaching a couple of stars
I swapped out the word JULY for another fireworks over 1


Stars and Stripes overall


A close up of the side

And now for an opinion.
I stitched a star in a corner
but do I stitch the rest of the corner in the light blue
or even white?
something else?


Not sure what the corners in the corner will be yet
Eliminated the idea of a rhodes - it looked terrible
Squares like in the star didn't work either


Have a great week!

May went quickly.  So many things to do and so many projects to work on.  I actually finished 5 things, 6 if the Santa in the chimney gets counted.   The projects completed were Gobble, Halloween #1, Halloween #2, patriotic heart and Moonlight madness.  Just scroll back and you can find the photos.

Here's an update on other projects still in progress.
