Hello Everyone! Can you believe we are already into May? This year has flown by. I spent yesterday picking up a few annuals to plant in containers. It rained yesterday afternoon, so I want to get them planted today. Right now, I don’t have a space to plant perennials. We have a very small yard now and the beds are full of blooming Azalea’s. I may plant a few annuals in front of the Azalea’s to have color there when they stop blooming.
I just have a quick update on my stitching this week. I spent the weekend working just on Salute to Abigail by Blackbird Designs for the #bbweekendsal on Instagram. I enjoyed looking at everyone’s stitching over the weekend.
This is where I was before I started stitching on Saturday.
Here it is after I finished stitching on Sunday night. I had two strands of CCW Cupid left.
On Monday morning, instead of working on Scenic Farm, I finished using those two strands of Cupid. The rest of the red, which are the berries, will be in DMC 115. I hope to finish it this week.
Since I didn’t work on Scenic Farm much last week, I’ll show progress on that next time.
I did get a lot of work done on Let’s Talk Spring by Cathy of Hands on Design. I just have to finish filling in the green around Spring. I have been stitching a strand of green, then moving on to another color, but that’s what is left. There is backstitching around the green, but I’m not sure I’ll do it. I didn’t stitch it in the Autumn one, and will probably leave it off here.
I spent part of Sunday afternoon getting my stitching records up to date and putting threads back in their proper places. I also went through some of my summer charts to see what to stitch on next and pulled a couple out.
Then I got these in the mail yesterday. I love the Flea Market Flowers chart by Lori Holt. I need to see if I have the DMCs for this one so I can start it soon. I also like the Stitchy Stars by Lori. Actually, I wouldn’t mind making Stitch Stars into a quilt. Hmmmm, maybe I need something like that to get my quilty bug going agian.
By the way, thanks for the comments and suggestions from the last post on getting motivated and on what kind of tree that is that I showed you. If I figure it out, I’ll let you know.
That’s it for now. We are getting our second shots on Friday, so it depends on how I feel on Saturday if I can get a post in. We are getting the Moderna shot and almost everyone I know that has had it, hasn’t felt the best the next day. Small price to pay though. I hope you are able to get your shots soon.
Take care and thanks for stopping by.
