Days ago I promised pics of the stitching I did over Memorial Day weekend while camping. At long last, I will show you the pitiful amount I accomplished. First off is the hardanger heart from the Count Your Blessings VS retreat project. To finish it, I cut the threads, wove the bars and put in two dove's eyes. There is a charm for the center which will be attached when the heart is stitched to the finished larger project.
I also stitched the little scissor fob design which took very little time, but will be so sweet finished up.
A Quaker Study also received my attention that weekend, but really it's just more of the same and an updated picture would be so redundant. Currently I'm signed up for a Victoria Sampler cyberclass, Butterfly Lace, and that is what I need to be starting this weekend.
We've had some really great weather lately (with a nice thunderstorm thrown in) so my attentions have been drawn outside to the work I have out in the garden. My rose garden is what really keeps me going. I just love this little part of my yard. On Thursday I added one more rose, Blue Girl, and that will be the last addition, unless I need to replace a shrub in the future. All the backbreaking work I did in this garden has paid off greatly. Digging the hole for my new rose the other day was such a pleasure - not one rock did I see! Truly amazing for this patch of ancient river bed!
