What haven’t I been up to? Actually, I’ve been taking a little time to myself this summer, with my little guy out of school. It’s been lovely! A lot of stitching going on. I’m closing in on the Yellow Bunny for the club, working on the Americana Club, finished my piece that I will be teaching at the Dallas market, the retreat piece, and so many other pieces. I will admit, I have a problem. I’m a serial starter. For all that I do finish, you guys never see all the WIP’s I’ve got going. One of these days they’ll get finished.
So, I’ve been loving these new J & J pieces. So much fun to stitch. I know I said I would post pics a few days ago, and was called out on my lack of posting by my friend Kim. So here it is.
I thought I would challenge myself on this piece. I am not going to do any stitches that I have done before. Except for some French Knots, Colonial Knots or Lazy Daisies in the tress and bushes. Really, what else can you do? We’ll see.
I’ve been using a ton of stitches from the Landscapes book and Ins & Outs.
This water stitch was so quick!
I thought I would randomly place this cloud stitch throughout the sky. Working out so far.
This is the second piece that I’m working on. I just want to live here.
I’ll keep you posted. Stitch guides will come at some point, when I finish. We have both of these canvases in the trunk show. So snatch them up while they’re on sale!
