Orioles are finished & library project

Happy Monday to you!!!! We had a very busy weekend & I had very little stitching time. I had decided for sure & for certain I was finishing the oriole project over the weekend. Well, guess what? It didn't get finished!
BUT.............Monday mornings are my 'at the library' morning. I take the little guy I babysit to preschool on Monday mornings. Rather than come all the way home, just to have to turn around again, I go to the library!
I have a project that is a new start & I am calling it my library project. I am only working on it at the library on Monday mornings (so far!!!)
Today, I didn't work on it. I took the few flosses I still needed to use for the Oriole piece & I finished it!!! I knew I didn't have much left.....and I didn't.. It took an hour to finish it.
I am happy to have this one done. It seems like it took forever to do, but I LOVE how it looks!!!! It will be a great reminder all winter of the lovely orioles that frequent my feeders in the warm months.
The library project has very little done on it thus far. It is Countryside by Bent Creek. I am attaching a picture of the little start. I think it is going to be a fun to work on project.
My summer canning has officially started. I was beginning to think I would not get any tomatoes to can, but wow! They came on strong all of a sudden. We picked a LOT last night......
I got 28 pints of tomatoes canned. I had enough for more, but I knew this would put me to bedtime, so I stopped with that.  Now, if the frost holds off, I will have a whole lot more!!!
ORIOLE FINISHED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Countryside just begun!
Thanks for stopping by my blog & have a great week!!!

A lovely finish, and it will be a great reminder! Yes, it seems that everyone has either late canning times or has none at all. What a summer.

Your library project looks nice too, good luck with that one.

Hugs Yvon.

Congratulations on the Orioles, Shari--what a gorgeous finish! And I love the idea of a "library" project--you've chosen such a cute one. I could never do that at my library--I would immediately be drafted into work of some sort, wouldn't I?

Congrats on the finish. It turned out great. I love the new Bent Creek piece you've started. Is it an older chart, I couldn't find in anywhere.

The orioles look beautiful, Shari.
The colors are so pretty.

The library is a wonderful place to stitch...so peaceful and quiet to concentrate.
THe BC Counttryside is sweet.

Good luck with your canning. The tomatoes are so delicious now. They will be a treat in the cold weather!

Have a good week ahead. I hope you enjoy your next "library day!"

Such a beautiful finish.

Oh wow, how cool is that. I quite simply love your bird project, these little birds are so gorgeous. I love stitching birds myself but haven't started a project with birds for quite a while. You are motivating me to go and browse my stash for such a project.

Congrats on the finish! Great choice of Bent Creek

those birds are very pretty. I think that is one kind I have not stitched for my dad yet. I wonder if they have them done in Northern Ontario

Denise said...

Four days later and I finally catch up!

Your orioles look fab. Will you frame them before winter? Or a pillow? Decisions - decisions!

Never seen your library project before - but I see why it called your name!

Ick - canning. Have fun...

Very pretty Shari. All your works are always very nice. Love you. Mom

Very pretty finish. Still haven't seen any Orioles around here. Would love to get some! We did 27 jars of Salsa so far. They did take their time to get here, but they came on at the end too!
