Mid Week Update






Happy Wed. all! Wow, this week is going fast....hard to believe it is the middle of the week already...where does the time go???
I finished the SPRING part of the Novalee2 SAL over the weekend...actually, I think I finished it on Friday. I found a piece of potato lugana that was the perfect size for this SAL, so that is what I am using.
Next, I did a 'pen blank' for my dad....if you remember in previous posts, he had just started doing pens with cross stitch inserts. Well, he has moved onto using sports teams as the inserts. He asked me to work up several for him. This is the first I have done.
Lastly, I finished the June LHN monthly sampler this morning. Six down, six to go. This is finish # 9 of 15 in the New Project Challenge. It is finish # 25 for the year.
I am not counting the pen blank, nor the other 2 pen blanks we TRIED to do. Also, the SAL piece could be considered a finish, but I will wait until all 4 are done to call it a finish.
I am also posting a few pictures from around my yard the past week or so. Sure wish it would warm up to feel like spring!!
Have a great week!

You've got a lot of the Lily in the Valley, that flower was in my bridalbouquet and i hope to have lot's in my garden, it is beginning to grow but i forgot to take a picture of them.
Your stitching is looking good.

The purple flower looks lovely but kind of new to me.
Cute finish for the pens for your Dad and the Spring SAL, lovely as well as the LHN finish. Can't wait for the next season SAL which is more than a month from now before we get it.

Your Dad kills me. Glad you got this one to work!

June and Spring -- 25 finishes -- I beg for mercy. Two more finishes - good for you - can you send that mojo east for just a few days!

Everything is beautiful, Shari.

I'm a little behind you on the Novalee sal but hope to finish part one asap. It doesn't help that I have several wips (including a model) going at once. lol!

Lovely stitching Shari and the flowers are very pretty. Like some of the others I'm not familiar with the purple flower but I really like it!

Nice work on all the SAL's!!! I agree about the weather, it's been awful! We're heading to Pittsburgh tonight and I hear the forecast is sun and 70's!!! Won't that be a change???
