July wasn't the best month for stitching...




So I have been neglectful to my blog lately. I know, but I have been so busy. This summer semester flew by and I just felt like I was constantly trying to catch up. Plus, our entire family was gone the second week of July. I had to go to a meeting about the textbook, Hobbie was at a conference, and the boys were at camp. Hopefully, I will be more attentive this month. I do have several neat projects in line for this month, so I will definitely want to share.


I did finish one biscornu. This is Barbara Ana Designs Thanksgiving biscornu. It is very cute and quite easy to stitch.


I almost finished this LK Spring piece, but ran out of the green thread. I just picked up a new skein this weekend, so this will be finished soon.


I have also worked very diligently on Remember Me. Isn't it wonderful? I can't wait to get this one completed. Of course, I ran out of the Charcoal thread, but I think I am going to just use the DMC equivalent to complete it.

Have you seen the Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart series? These are so pretty. I have been purchasing these as they became available and have been thinking how I want to finish these. I know I want to stitch them as a single piece, but I really didn't want to buy another piece of linen when I have a drawer full. Luckily, I found a piece of 40 ct. that is perfect for it. I started the first pattern this weekend and had a great idea come to me while I was stitching. I am going to personalize the entire sampler by adding the initials and years for birthdays and anniversaries for me, Hobbie, the boys, our parents and our grandparents. Isn't that wonderful? The funny thing is that each month is covered except for May. I still need to find out the dates of my husbands paternal grandparents birthdays and anniversary, so maybe one of those dates is in May. I can't wait to finish this now...
