Slow going

When I have a couple of weeks where I stitch and stitch and stitch, I lose my momentum for a bit.

Not much progress this time.

I am stitching away on this piece and it is slow going. This is LHN "Summer Splendor". The photo does not do the fabric color or threads any justice. Hopefully, the finish photo will be nicer.


I have finished my part of the last Band Sampler RR. This one is Sweetheart Tree designs. It will go out in the mail today.



In the mail this past week, I received two lovely packages. Carolien decided this chart needed a new home and I was lucky enough to be that home. I love the colors - so soft.


And the second package came from my good friend Rebecca. She sent me this wonderful Christmas ornament - her very first finished one! It is beautiful. It also came with three packages of Caramilk Snowmen but somehow they didn't make it into the picture - mostly because they made it to my stomach first LOL.



I have three round robins sitting on my chair - a UFO RR, a Christmas tree RR and a Mirabilia RR. I have picked out the tree I want to stitch and I have stitched the face on the Mirabilia.

Off to lunch with the girlfriends and a little shopping at Beall's.
Until next time, stay frog free!!!

Well, if the picture doesn't do your project any good, it really must be gorgeous. I love the colors I am seeing! That Sweetheart Band Sampler is amazing. And, there you go getting two great packages - whoo hooo!

LHN Splendor looks great. Lovely gifts received.

Your stitching impulse will come back; it just wanted a little nap. --- at least that's the argument I use when mine abandons me. Someday I'll get smart enough to realize starting 12 new projects is NOT the way to make it come home.

Love the projects and the goodies-- and I will you well on your RRs.

Oh, I love that LHN WIP, Kathy--what great colors :) I feel like I've got stitching Attention Deficit Disorder or something lately--just can't sit down and stitch for more than an hour before I want to quit and go do something else...

Hope you're enjoying all that lovely AZ sunshine :)

I love this LHN Kathy! My girlfriend just picked this one out of my stash as one she'd like me to stitch for her. What fabric are you using? It's really lovely with those colours.

You received some great gifts. That chart looks amazing and Rebecca has done an awesome job on her first ornie finish. Although, the thoughts of those Cadbury snowmen are making me drool right now.

Love the Splendor!!
Rebecca's ornament looks great! How sweet that you have her first ornament finish!

I'm glad the ornament and chocolate made it safe and sound...I was going to mail it from Canada but decided to bring it to Texas and mail it from there! I hope the ornament brings you lots of "Joy".

Summer Splendor looks so great, you are stitching it on a lovely piece of fabric.
So many RR pieces, wow. I once was also into RRS and was enjoying them a lot. So many different themes that can be done.
