I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Model Finished, Lucy Redd, PS Harvest Time

The model I've been working on is finished and has arrived "home".  Happy Dance!

It's been very hot here still and lately rainy (Trop Storm Imelda) so I've had some extra stitching time.

I've worked a bit on Lucy Redd (Homespun Elegance) and, after seeing another stitcher's finish of PS Harvest Time, was inspired to start that one.






In the meantime, I've been tempted to start La-D-Da's Alone in the Garden and will splurge stitch it in silks (that are on order).

Happy stitching!

Lucy Redd, Summer Baking

I'm on the home stretch of a large model (WOO HOO!) which I, of course, can't show.  I'm in the "fiddly bits" stage so I'm really looking forward to finishing and sending it off to the designer.  It's a beautiful design.

Meanwhile, during the weekends, I've been spending some time with Lucy Redd (Homespun Elegance).  I can actually see myself being on the home stretch of this one when I can spend more time with her.


I'm already itching to start another sampler...perhaps after I finish the model (and a Christmas stocking) I can put a new sampler in my rotation.


It's hotter than Hades here now.  Despite that DH has been baking.  I can't complain because he turned out a yummy peach gallette.  (Why is it that everything that tastes good is so not good for you?!)


He also made a Corn, Tomato, and Basil Tart.  (Funny thing...the recipe title includes basil but the herb used in the recipe is rosemary...no basil.)  The crust on this thing was exquisite!



I'm so excited that college football has started.  Even with the temperature so high here, it makes me feel a little bit like fall.  GO BUCKS!!!

Happy stitching!
