This next piece is something I stitched for Heather R (monsoon) for an Early Christmas Ornament exchange. I stitched Emmanuel from Plum Street Sampler - it's a freebie. I really like the finishing. I followed Vonna's wonderful finishing instruction from her blog The Twisted Stitcher.
Next is the ornament I received for the Early Christmas Ornament Exchange. Edgar in San Francisco stitched this wonderful Prairie Schooler design and finished it as a flat ornament. I love how creatively he cut the felt backing.
Part 2 of Mary Wigham's Wardrobe came out at the beginning of May. I've been trying to stitch on that in between my exchanges. Progress for this piece is coming along. I'll try to share a pic soon.
Summer is here in full force! We've planted some veggies this year - tomatoes, green peppers, and squash. We wish we could have planted more, but we waited too long into the spring. It's funny, I don't even like tomatoes, but I can't wait to try our home grown variety! As George Carlin said, "something has gone a foul inside a tomato....." - too much so for me!
Haven't had the chance to watch too many good movies lately. Out of the few I've seen in the last couple of weeks, I'd have to say Avatar was the best. I think we may have been the only people on the planet who hadn't seen the movie yet! We thought is was very good - absolutely loved the colors and CGI effects. Although I can see why did not win the Oscar for Movie of the Year over the Hurt Locker. I would recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it yet (if there's anyone out there - LOL).
The beach is calling my name! I can smell the faint perfume of the salt air! Can't wait to get the chance to put my feet in the sand this summer! Until next time - Happy Stitching :)
