Wow! I can’t believe it’s been so long since my last post! And where did June go? I swear just the other day it was June 1 and now here we are in July! Summer please slow down 🙂 So even though I have been going at full speed almost every day the last few weeks, I have managed to get my regular stitching in 🙂 So here is what I have been up to:
Here is where I am with Moon, Sweet Moon, Mystery SAL by Passione Ricamo. I am stitching her on 16ct Aida OOAK from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics. It is actually a gray color with hints of purple. Bad photo, sorry. It is really beautiful in person. Unfortunately, this is no longer a SAL. Someone has passed the first few sections onto the internet, illegally, so Laura ended the SAL. So sad for someone to do this. She has released the full pattern to each person that signed up, with watermarked pattern in their name. This is how it will look when finished:
It is so beautiful and I am so sad to see it end as a SAL. It is now available for purchase on Laura’s website if you are wanting to stitch this beauty. You can find it here. I am waiting on threads for the moon, so I have put her aside and picked up this one:
This is the Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler. I can’t begin to tell you how I much I LOVE stitching on this piece. I have just started stitching the April section, so I am a bit behind. But it is such a relaxing stitch. I am using Sullivan’s variegated thread London Fog and DMC 3888. The fabric is 16ct Aida Castleview by Silkweaver. I am hoping to get this caught up before getting back to something else or starting something else. If you would like to stitch this piece, it is a FREE SAL put out by Linen and Threads and the January through July sections are on their website. Here is another view:
I have also been adding a row or two, now and then on my Temperature blanket. I am somewhere at the beginning of April and here is how it is looking so far:
I’ve added another row of yellow and a row of light purple. Hoping there will be more of these colors as I am really getting bored of the darker ones. This is nice to work on when I have a few minutes here and there. It is getting too big to carry around, so I will keep adding to it now and then and hope to also get caught up with it, too.
In my last post I told you briefly about a new stamp obsession of mine. Here are some cards using products from Heartfelt Creations:
Here is a close-up of those beautiful 3-d flowers!
And this one is my favorite:
I am having such fun making 3-d flowers with glitter, and frosting and beaded centers. I need to play more 🙂 I have also added these 3-d flowers to my scrapbook pages. I will have to get photos of those for next time. Right now it’s time to go play 🙂
What are you busy playing with these days?
