It's hot here in the Valley. We have had two weeks of triple digits. Where did spring go? One would think that I would have accomplished something on the stitching front. I wish that were true. I'm dividing my time between Sarah and Margaret. I love the diminutiveness of Sarah on the 45ct., but I can't stitch at my normal pace. It's driving me crazy. The over one alphabets went fast, and they are tiny. As I've said soooo many times before, I hate borders. I think that is part of the problem. This one is pretty, but it doesn't flow well when stitching. That might not make sense, but you know how you start to memorize the pattern after so much repetition? I have to keep checking the chart as it's fairly detailed. I find that my hand gets tired with the 45ct, too. Weird, huh?
Sarah Hartley 1827I can't resist including this picture of Grandson, Sawyer. He recently turned one. Here he is enjoying some of his birthday cake. I know I'm biased, but is he cute or what?
Thanks to the response for my recent needle case sets, I have to get to painting today. I hope to have something to show soon.
