Lost My Mind...Briefly

And started a new project.  Worked on this all day yesterday while I was at the eye doctor.  Yes, you can even do this with your eyes dilated.  I love the background except for the compensating.  Can't wait to do the lamb and the flowers.

But I am back to the poison bottle now.

Phew,  that was a close one!

The Sign is Done


Last night I finished the sign.   Those are colonial knots done on a 24 needle.  I had to refresh my memory on those - went straight to YouTube.  Today I'm going to finish up the background and work on the lid to the bottle.

Should have it ready to go sometime next week 😊

This Shouldn't Be Too Hard to Finish

Just the bottle top, french knots on the letters and the ooze and I will have another finish!

Apple Fix

Here I am almost done with apple number 4...meaning I will have to go back to the background soon
😖 and then work on one of my WIPs until we get the last lesson in July.  I figure I have 2 nights to finish the strap stitches and the beads in the letter.  I have been binge watching Lark Rise to Candleford on PBS - doesn't get any better than that.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I sure did.

Just Peachy

My third fruit is back from the finisher - my peach.  It went all the way to Antarctica and back again.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day🌷🌷

Baseball Diamond Apple

Hi there,

I did this last night and today while watching the soap opera that is our government on CNN.  Much better than the Young and the Restless.

I had better slow down or I will be back to the red and white stripes by the end of the week.

Enough With the Background Already

Hi there,

I find it very hard to stay on task especially when I have something that looks like lots of fun right in front of me.  That would be the 4th Apple!

So I spent 2 days working on the background stripes and THANKING HEAVEN that I have finished the border.  TWICE!!  FYI, those little red beads in the red stripes are a pill to put in.

I did work one leaf just so I would know how..  Still have the backstitch to do.

And here is J - I am also thankful that July only has 4 letters!  Meaning, I may finish this in 2017!  Yes, I still have the pumpkin parade to finish 👻

So the new plan is to work the next apple and return to the background.  It's nice having 2 months to do your homework.

Happy Wednesday!
