Summer is finally here!!

The calendar says Summer is finally here.  I know it is summer because the weather has been very hot, sunny and beautiful.  My favourite time of the year.

I haven’t been stitching lately, too much to do in the garden.  I have some perennials, but I also like to plant annuals by seed.  I don’t always have luck, but it is more satisfying when it does grow.  Every year I buy a few annuals and perennials from the garden centre as well.  I also try to buy some kind of gnome or garden art every summer.  This year I found several things.  Here is one of my garden gnomes at the beach. I’ll add more photos throughout the summer of my garden and decorative things.

I did finish stitching a Christmas ornament last weekend.  I still need to assemble it, but that is for another time.

Happy Stitching!!

Spring Mouse in a House - update #6

I finished the fourth wall of the Spring Mouse in a House.  I still have the 2 floor pieces (inside and outside), plus the mouse.  Haven’t decided whether to do the inside floor or the outside floor next.  Here is a photo showing all four walls completed.

Spring Mouse in a House - Update #5

Happy New Year 2018!!  I started Spring Mouse in a House in 2017, but didn’t do much stitching throughout the year.  I hope to find more time to stitch this year.  Here is my progress from today, I had the purple triangle shape and the green line at the bottom and the green on the two sides.  Everything else was completed today.
