Here is the final Hummel cross stitch project that I was commissioned to do. I got it done one day before she arrived in Massachusetts for a two week visit and I was so pleased to be able to give it to her in person. To say she was thrilled is an understatement, and that made me feel so good.
I immediately jumped into some new cross stitches. This one is beyond difficult, despite the fact that it's being done solely in black thread. It's really hard to count the stitches on the pattern and I have to use a white pencil to cross out each row as I go along. The first row was the worst but I think I can work off of it OK.
Another sea-themed project by the now defunct Bucilla brand. I hope I have enough of each colour floss in this kit. My goal was a shell a day but I think we can all agree that's not gonna happen.
This project has been moved to the front of the line because it's going to be a housewarming gift for one of my best friends who is moving this week. She loves her wine. I hope she's too busy packing to check my blog!
The weather's been too hot and humid to do anything fun. Nothing has gelled this summer to allow me to go on any day trips. I was about to leave for Newport, RI a week or so ago, when I discovered I'd forgotten to charge my camera battery. By the time it was charged, it was too late & too hot. The days I'm free, it's raining or humid. The days I'm busy, it's nice. Summer's nearly over; it went by way too fast.
