Yes! I am still here. Just busier than a bee in a hive! We are slowly getting the house in order. Today we built another much needed shelf in the laundry room. Next weekend I hope to replace the deck and do more work on our brand new shingled roof that leaks.... The old adage applies here.... If you want it done right, do it yourself. Moving the garden is one hold until the roof is repaired and the deck is redone. Am thinking of raised box gardens off the deck for vegetables and flowers. Not sure yet. But I do miss my garden as it is still at the old rent house. And, mostly gets watered and no pulling of weeds. The iris are ready to be moved as they have stopped flowering and are considered dormant. We have plenty of composted manure from the stables next door. So the flowers will have a good start when they are moved.
Have been stitching a new SAL called The Maiden. Normally I wouldn't participate in this type of time deadline SAL. But this was too pretty to pass up and something I have never stitched before. I did manage to finish part one before the june 30th deadline.
I looked through the slide show, of the pictures uploaded so far. There are very beautiful color combinations being stitched. If you would like to see them you can look here
The designer is Angie and she has done a wonderful job with many SAL's. This SAL is closed. Most likely she will have future SAL's. If you are interested, bookmark her page so you can keep up with new SAL's. This one was $5 for a 3 part delivery in 45 day increments. And is quite a large project.
Next is Liberty Lane by Country Cottage Needleworks. In the summer mood and decided to brighten up the colors after seeing another stitchers work.
My friend Michelle has been busy knitting her petit animals. Including foxes and elephants.
And for some reason I can not get the images to load. BUT! I have added a tab at the top of this page to you can visit her blog and see more marvelous animals Michelle has been knitting.
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching!
