A sampling of my designs as well as personal stitching, and life in general.

A couple of weeks ago I went to a street fair.  It's still called that but it has grown an has been a juried show for many years now.  But it's always fun and has some great things.  Here are a few shot of interesting booths.

I admit that I like Knights
but he did not come home with me other than the photo.

Unique table.
There were numerous other sizes as well.

Every year this booth has some unique curved glass.
I think the curve is half of the appeal.
This year was different that they had a lot of black and white.

I love teapots!

And yet another teapot.

This is all a silver metal.
Walking towards the fair  (I parked 4 blocks away)
I saw a lady carrying this huge tree that was of this silver metal.
It was gorgeous!

Stitching has been slow due several things going on.  But here are the progress of two items.   Progress should be better next week.

Three Things sampler
I admit I leave the small items on the outside border 
for when I have a limited time. I don't need
the chart to work on that area.

Mystery SAL
overall photo

This corner section was a pain.
I frogged the lower middle section a couple of times
only to discover the mistake was back 
on the lower left corner.

early Flag day

Last week I barely got any stitching done so all updates will wait until the end of the week (at best).  I hope to have a stitching day this week-end and hopefully next week with EGA.  I hope all goes well.

Meanwhile a salute to Flag Day.

Something finished and framed

Here is something I finished (back in 2016) but didn't have framed until this spring.  It was an Internet SAL from Motifs from Old Dutch Samplers group.  There were not set colors.  So everything from from my stash.  I loved stitching this piece.   The original had every letter in a different color.  That bugged me so I changed it to  each word being it's own color instead.

I admit I really love the frame.
My framer found some great selections
