Well, that was quick! Poof, May is gone! Here’s how my projects stand:
I did not get to a good stopping place on Autumn Quaker so I’ll just keep working on it in June. Maybe it’s about a third done? It doesn’t matter. I really like stitching on it.
Next is Jump Into Spring.
Jump Into Spring had an adventure last week called Jump Into the Pool. I stitch this one while watching the kids swim and put it down for a minute. The next thing I knew my son had pulled the chair I was sitting in into the pool with the whole project bag and everything. He was very apologetic. Well, the paper pattern was spoiled but not beyond use, and there’s a tiny bleed around the red flower on the right, but everything else survived the dunk, even my antique wood hoop which was my main concern. Fortunately I keep my floss in plastic baggies and they were all zipped up! I will still stitch by the pool but perhaps a bit further away.
I made a new start last week, something I couldn’t resist when I was putting away things and came across it in my stash. This is Celestial Collaboration Stars in Bloom from Just Nan:
I’m missing one thread! Gah! Actually, according to my list, I do own the thread in question, but I can’t find it. It is probably kitted with something else. This is cute and will be done soon, if I ever can find DMC 225! I love the peacock charm!
I will just keep working on these in June, at least for the next couple weeks. I hope everyone is having a nice summer!
