Gentle Readers and Dear Friends it was a lovely weekend here in the City - not very hot and fogged in for the most part!! We had a friend visiting from Monterey - she was up getting out of the heat and into the cool of SF - so we ran around with here for two days. I did get in some stitching......
First up will be Part II of the SAL that Niky is running. Here is the completed parts I & II....
It is a really fun piece to work on and the parts are very quick stitches.
The second piece I worked on was the CCN Jluy Cottage - I finished it up and am now waiting for August Cottage to arrive in the mail. here's a snap of the entire piece...
and here is a crappy snap of just July...
Although I am not a big red, white and blue stitcher -
I really enjoyed this particular cottage quirte a bit!!
I used only overdyed, except for the white - here are my converted choices...

GAST Aged Pewter (called for) only for the bird bath

The thrid piece I worked on was "And They Sinned"...
I did some on the left hand side vine and finished up the Sun.
