Summer time

I'm way overdue for an update. We've had a great summer so far between baseball games and a great vacation to the mountains, we've made some wonderful memories. We've also been busy doing some remodeling on the house.

On the stitching front I've finished several pieces.

I picked up my LHN "Be True" pieces from the framer. This picture doesn't do them justice, the frame is just perfect for this piece. One of these hangs in our bedroom and one of them is in my daughter's bedroom. I stitched this for her because I think it's particularly important for young women to be true to themselves. My DD is 12 and she loves it!!

I'm almost finished with HIH's "Liberty House Sampler." Just need to sew the buttons on and this one will be finished up.

I've also made some progress on my "Beatrix Potter" piece. It's such an enjoyable stitch. I took the picture in our bay window and the sun was peeking thru the trees.

While we were on vacation, I stitched LHN's "Stars and Stripes." I finished it 20 minutes before we got home. Good timing I thought:) I plan to finish this piece as a pillow.

I promise to try to update more often. I've got another piece to show as soon as I "finish" finish it.

Until next time,

I love your framed "To Thine" pieces...I just started this yesterday and I already have the frame here so when its done I can frame it and pop it on the wall. That is a good idea about making one for your daughter, I may have to make one for mine too...they ARE important words!
All your WIPs are stunning!
