Lot's of Catching Up

      I hope you're all enjoying your Summer. We've been having lots of rain and cooler temperatures. It's much more enjoyable outdoors without the typical Iowa summer of high heat and humidity. Owen and I have been enjoying long morning walks. Lot's of time being spent weeding the garden beds and discovering what the deer and rabbits have eaten during the night.

      I decided to concentrate on stitching smaller designs during the warm weather months this year. Here's what I've stitched so far.

     Paulette and Tanya have come up with lovely designs for the Colonial Gathering Club.

A Colonial Candle Pocket - Plum Street Samplers

Cotton Bird - Plum Street Samplers

Strawberry House - The Scarlett House

I adore the small kits Chessie & Me designs each year and I couldn't resist the latest one.

1776 Harbor - Chessie & Me

Another sweet kit I couldn't resist...

A Summer Garden - Cherished Stitches
 I discoverd this A&E design in the WIP closet. It only had about an hour of stitching left to complete the design.

Adam and Eve - Kathy Barrick

Last of all... a design that I've wanted to stitch for some time and finally decided to stitch it while watching the tennis tournament at Wimbledon. I love the little sheep!

Betsy - Sheepish Designs

I've been wanting to take a class with Betsy Morgan for the longest time. In June, Lynn's in Madison, WI , held a workshop and Betsy taught her Toy Chest Etui with the many toys. Here's my start on the front panel for the toy chest. 

Toy Chest Etui - Betsy Morgan - Front Panel
Owen's recommendation for the perfect Summer day.... a nice long nap!!!
