June ornament finished

I finished my ornament for June last night......I knew it would be done over the weekend. I enjoyed stitching this one!
It is Christmas Cottage by Blue Ribbon Designs. It was in the current JCS magazine.
I used Picture this Plus "Earthen" fabric. For the flosses, I used a few of the called for WDW colors & the rest were the DMC subs.... I like how it turned out & now need to have a finishing day...
Today, I plan to work on my LHN piece for the month. I haven't touched it yet either. The summer gets so busy with other activities, my stitching time goes way down. But, I think today I can do some stitching!
Have a great day everyone!!! Thanks for stopping by my little spot on the web!

Red, White & Bloom

I finished Red, White & Bloom earlier today. It is a pattern by CCN. I used fabric & flosses I had on hand. I only had one of the called for flosses, but subbed out for others & I am very happy with the results. I used a PTP fabric....I know it is 32 ct. but I am not sure of the color right now.
This is finish #27 for the year...I have slowed way down, since doing the pen blanks for my dad..
Now, I need to work on my ornament for the month & also my July LHN chart.
Happy Summer & Happy Stitching!

It's Not Much, But It Is A Start!

The past few weeks have been spent stitching pen blanks for my dad. I put my own stitching aside, so that I could get them done for him, as soon as feasibly possible. I finished them on Sat. afternoon. I had decided I was starting a new pattern as soon as I was done....a little celebration for myself!
I started Red, White & Bloom by CCN. I haven't gotten much done, but I am loving every X at this point. I think it will be a quick stitch. Usually when I am really enjoying a piece, it goes really quick.
This upcoming week is filled with busy-ness. I have appointments three mornings. One morning will be my normal errands. One day is our anniversary....yup, there's the week in a nutshell...
I hope everyone is having a great week. Thanks so much for stopping by & especially for leaving a comment....I appreciate them so much.
