Hello my lovelies!!
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post and welcome to my new followers! The heat is on here in the lower mainland as we depart for the Sunshine Coast tomorrow morning!! Very excited to get away camping, reading, and stitching. I am bringing a couple of smalls with me to work on while relaxing by the bay. I hope to get some amazing photos too since my sister dropped off her Nikon Coolpix camera for me! I took some better photos of Jane, who I've been working on all week. I've been concentrating on working on the border and hope to get that done, move onto the motifs, then the 1 over 1 and finally the satin stitched snake. I've got a ways to go but I'm feeling closer to being finished! I'm already looking at a couple of samplers to start for next year, but I can't decide. I'll fill you in when I make the choice.
I didn't get a chance to work on Knotgarden this weekend. I hope Joyce will forgive me...I'm sure she will. I got the scroll rods fixed too today and am looking forward to placing them on the rods and then onto my lapstand. Finally! As for the zipper crisis, I haven't touched it yet but found a really great tutorial that makes zippers seem so easy to install. Heh, we'll see when I give it a go. When I get back from camping, I'm going to buy a new, longer zipper and some more fabric and try it again. I won't let a wee little zipper get the best of me!! I've also printed off a couple of little fall smalls that I hope to stitch when I visit my family in Prince George, since September is around the corner and I love stitching fall designs!
Some lovely flowers from my Nana's patio.
Titus says bye!!
Have a wonderful few weeks and I hope to catch up with everyone when I come back! Big hugs to all!!
