Evening's Work


      My summer days have been filled with weeding, cleaning, and a walking dogs at Wayside Waifs with my son Andy for fun. Summer seems to be zooming by at record speed!

     My weeding seems to be focused on our vegetable garden in the back acreage. I can hardly wait for our first tomato. 


      In the evenings, I'm stitching. This piece has been relaxing and fun for me. I try to complete a letter or two....or if I'm really ambitious, I stitch an entire line. The flower/strawberry border really makes this piece sweet.
     I used the smyrna cross to replace some of the eyelet stitches. It made this piece faster and easier. (It's all about the fun, right?)

   
     During a cleaning and sorting frenzy I found this sweet needle minder attached to a piece of linen in my studio. It had been forgotten and now it's  back to work, holding my needle in place. I love this sewing aid. Wish I could remember where it's from.


     Above is the most recent Loose Feather pattern. It should be at your local cross stitch shop now.
Hope you are all having a wonderful summer. Have a happy 4th of July!

Until later,
Alma

  1. Have a blessed Independence Day too! We are a blessed nation.

    I LOVE your needle-minder, and the new pattern is simply gorgeous! I will have to finally make that trip to a cross stitch store. You see I'm a quilter, and only go to quilt shops. One day while in my favorite quilt shop, I asked about cross stitching, and they told me of a store. So I will have to venture over there soon!

  2. I love my needle minder too! I got mine at Jinny Beyer's website. I bought extras to give to my sister and BFF! She has several types for sale online.

  5. Such lovely stitching...I've started the sampler myself but haven't gotten very far. The four-sided stitch seems to take me forever! Adore your blog and your designs!

  6. Lovely stitches and design. Summer should be lazy and easy although I'm making pickles and birthday presents and I need to mow...again. LOL! It's not been lazy or easy around here! It does make me appreciate my stitching though when I finally sit down at the end of a full day. Lovely needle minder too. Happy 4th to you too.

  11. Thank you for this stich along. I was so glad to pretend my 3G grandmother stitched this at the age of 11. I am aware of no samplers in existence for my family, so this is it. I do not have a working blog or Instagram, but as soon as your E-mail address pops up I'll send it.
