updates from the beach!~








Well.....difficulty from the beach posting but I will see if this post goes through...

I have been a stitching machine of late!~ Just got the fire in me to do some finishes I guess. I have a great friend lend me her sewing machine so I was able to sew up my stitching pouch. This is the first time I have put one of my LHN in something like this as a finish. I thought the needlecase and pouch turned out pretty a-ok and I plan on using them alot!!

I am posting my La-D-Da Quaker Alphabet also as my WIP...I just began it over the weekend and although it is EATING UP my Belle Soie, I am enjoying it!! Since the fabric is Weeks 30 ct, I decided to use 2 threads in my needle for adequate coverage. I think it will be great once done. The colors are Cranberry and Moss..The moss is actually so dark a green it looks dark grey.....ya know/?

Last but not least....I finally finished the sampler for JCS....I had started it back in Feb and the photo is not really a good one, but the sampler actually turned out nice. It is not "my" colors at all, but since it is different I really like it...anyways, will put this one in my "to be framed" pile!

Signing off from Cherry Grove for now...only 2 weeks until I am back home and getting ready to busy up my classroom for school to start back! This summer has flown by!!!! Have a great weekend everyone!!
