Gentle Friends, another hot one here by the Bay, it's in the '80s but will be dropping as the day goes on.... the breeze will be back!! So here are a couple of snaps of my stitching...
... this is where I've left off on Little Birds until I stitch up Coming to America. I got the vine connected but need to get to all the flowers.
Here's a snap where I left off on CtA last night...
... I've got a nice little start on the border (sorry the snap is so lousy) That gray smear (lower left) is actually on the linen and part of the over-dying (I guess) as it does not come off so I'll work through it and live with it as is... as you can see I started this piece as I always do in the upper left corner. The instructions usually, as they do with this project, say to start in the middle. I read through the instructions and as I do most of the time use them as a jumping-off point and do my own thing. I refuse to be a slave to printed instruction and see them mostly as "suggestions." For some reason, probably habit I usually, always, most of the time, start in a corner and work out for there.
Hope everyone is staying safe and sound over this long weekend.
Thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
Good Thoughts! Good Words! Good Deeds!
