Summer Stitching

 Hello everyone,

I am sorry to say that I love summer stitching but in the summer it is hard to find alot of time to do it when there is so many other things to do. Taking small trips and getting ready for a garage sale. It also being so HOT!! It really zaps one's energy. I do have a few small things to show. 2 of them I designed myself and finshed them. This is a bookmark I made out of a needlepoint square that was given to me from a stash cleanout. It now has a purpose in life.

This next one I designed and finished in honor of Caylee Anthony. When I saw that little girl's face in the  paper my heart just broke. I made this to honor her because I feel a terrible injustice has been done to her and its awful that someone so innocent had to suffer so harshly. I hope one day justice prevails!!
On a happier note, I made this little design to remember our family trip to Virginia Beach last April. ( I am a little behind on this one but better late than never.) I put a dolphin charm on it because when I think of Virginia Beach, I think of dolphins. Love it!!! I love the beach so much one of these days I may not come home.

That's it for now. These next few weeks is jam packed so I am not sure how much stitching will be done but I definitely will squeeze in as much as I can. Enjoy the nice weather wherever you are!

small finishes


I hope everyone had a fun holiday weekend and that the weather was nice where you are. We had great weather and spent the day Sunday at Seabreeze Amusement park with some friends. We had a blast! My stitching slows this time of year because there is so many other things going on. For instance gardening, keeping a young child busy, and organizing for a garage sale in a few weeks. I did manage a few small finishes to show you. First, is this ornament I made for our xmas tree this year. It is to commemorate our trip to Virginia Beach this year. The pattern came from the Creative Gifts Calendar from Needle and Thread Stitching for Literacy. Thanks Jen!

I also finished these 2 bookmarks for the Stitching for Literacy Bookmark Challenge for 2012. I am off to a good start for bookmarks so I have to keep my momentum going. I think that brings my count to 9. The xoxo bookmark is on a light colored ribbon which is hard to see in the picture.

Well, that's all I have for now. thanks for looking and I hope to have more finshes soon.

Happy Stitching Everyone!
