Stitching, Strawberries, and Picking Posies!
Been working with needle and thread a little as time allows. This was a pattern by Cedarberry Stitches.
This is my 2nd one of this great pattern by A Stitch In Time....Just a very fun piece to stitch. Once it was stitched I added it to a piece of old army blanket.
Again I have grabbed some scraps from the wool basket and have started stitching. This one isn't quite finished.
We have been enjoying a few strawberries from the very small patch I have planted in an old tractor tire. Actually a lil' boy has been enjoying them he pops them in his mouth as fast as he picks them.
The addition of the gathering room has been completed on the outside. The guys did a wonderful job. The electrician who is in his late 70's has been working on putting up lights and adding lots of elecrical outlets for us. He should be done in just a few days.
Danny and I will be completing the inside and I'm hoping it flows as smoothly as the rest has been. I want it simple and prim and I've been experimenting with a few ideas with the walls as they will be done in wood.
I have been working on the flowerbeds a little as the wind allows....goodness it has been blowing for weeks. Sloan found a patch of "flowers" he proudly announced he was picking flowers for his mommy....He had quite a handful to take home!
Now a question. I ordered a vintage punch that I'm wanting to try. Last year while at Star of Texas rug hooking camp in Fredericksburg, Karen Kahle spoke about using one of these and showed rugs she had made with one. I am wondering if anyone has tried it or seen how it is used. I want to give it a try soon....just need to find some time to give it a go. If you have used one or know about it I would love to hear your thoughts on using it.
