A Little Stitching

 Gentle friends, the border met up without a hitch... and I was worried as it was an un-fudgeable type of border....here's a snaperoo of the piece as it stands...

.. it's just moving along at a nice clip now.  I'll get the next part of "Fruits" tomorrow and will get moving there next.

A Little More Normal

 Gentle friends, as we all start getting back to a more normal life after being vaccinated we had a little fun over the weekend and got a chance to get over to a friend's house in Berkeley ...just to smell the roses......  and eat lunch!  Here are some snaps of his backyard in full bloom...








... Mr. Billbo Baggins was on point all afternoon!!

 Rob is a super cook/baker and after a lunch of roasted asparagus and short ribs there was a scrumptious desert.  He had made little shortcakes, which he covered with strawberries that had been macerated in balsamic/mint with a dollop of freshly whipped cream!

A very Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I was less than motivated this week and only got a little further along on Paradise...


... and if you look at the left side border there is a mistake I had to go back and fix so I also did some frogging... fun stuff...

A Little Stitchin'

 Gentle Friends, I wanted to finish up the May section on "Fruits" before posting a snap... 


... it's a bit wrinkled and not as smooth as I would have liked but you get the idea.  As you can see I stitched past the actual "section" for May... It just drives my nuts to stop mid-line or where I can see the leaf or vine continue... so I just continued on stitching... that half-bird on the mid-right is the actual demarcation between the May and June sections so you can see where I just kept on stitching along.

That's about all for now sports fans.  I'm just about finished with the Christmas Present stitch and will get it to the framers as soon as it's done.  Thanks for stopping by do stop again!
