Time Flies!!!


I can't believe how fast this summer has gone by and that the last time I've posted to this blog was May 14th!!  So much has happened.... #1 graduated High School and is in the final stages of her countdown to college, #2 got her driver's permit and has already hit the road almost every day since last week, I got a new day job and a local college and am LOVING it, had some downtime with the family... and even with all that I've gotten a substantial amount of stitching done. 

I have been asked to stitch four of the BH&G Heirloom Stockings from someone who reached out to me on a message board.  I am about three weeks in to the first one Called "Toys and Games" and you can see the progress below.  They're done with DMC three over two on 25-count mushroom Lugana which I LOVE stitching on.  The photos were taken after 1 week, 2 weeks and then 3 weeks just now.

I have some other smaller projects finished as well as part 1 of L*K's Mystery Sampler just about done but I'll show you those in future blogs.  In the meantime, I'd like to hold a mystery giveaway---leave a comment about what your favorite part of this summer has been and I'll pick a winner this time next week. It'll be a pattern, floss and fabric and I promise you won't be disappointed! (Open to all---not just U.S. followers.)

Have a great week and just keep stitching! ~Nicole
