It has been a crazy August so far, Summer Weather, Work and Family have all contributed into making this a great summer and one filled with great memories.
However, I have found less time to stitch, and even less time to blog or post about the stitching.
I joined the Stitch Maynia Olympic Stitching SAL. I have been able to do most of the daily stitching, but the posting of the progress has not happened. Instead I am posting it here.
New Start 1 - I worked on this piece August 5 (Stitch blue), and 10th Specialty stitches.
This is Music Amongst the trees - Samplers Not Forgotten - Not sure if you can see this picture but there are Blue stitches in the band across the top and Rice Stitches at the bottom. I love stitching on this - first experience with Gloriana Silks. Its a treat. I was able to complete a lot of this on Day 1, I know very little blue, but - I worked on this Friday night at my Stitchers Retreat Every Other Month !st Friday Night Stitch in,so it was about 5 hours of stitching time.
Day 2 - International Theme - I finished La D Da Peace on Earth. I sort of looked at this a little different figured Internationally we could all work on Peace. (Very happy)
August 7 (yellow), August 9 (black) and August 11 (green). This was a New Start I was able to finish working on this for three days. Glory Bee's Free Summer Chart
I did not stitch August 8, Water or August 12 Triathalon - three pieces ( I did not stitch at all either of these two days.
August 13 (red) and August 14 Equestrian - I started and finished JBW Hobby Horse - I did this as a Christmas Ornament - I stitched this with Sulky threads Blendables Vintage Holidays. This was a 12 weight - so one strand is the same as 2 - it is a very different feel. But I really liked this thread and bought it on a whim and just had to use it. I would be picky about what I would stitch with these threads because of the look and feel, but I do like it.
So I haven't decided what I am working on from this day forward. But I am sure I will find something.
The Wedding quickly approaches for DD#3. I really need to get a dress - I haven't even looked and the wedding is September 3.
Guess I really should stitch some sort of Wedding Sampler? Maybe?
