Getting my mojo back and a finish :)

Hi All!!
I don't know how many of you remember but last year (maybe the year before) I thought I would try my first BAP and stitch The Shores of Hawk Run Hollow. Well I got a little overwhelmed and did not get far.  

Pretty bad huh?!? I think the size of the fabric overwhelmed me. I started again today and WILL keep going.  I love to read Becky's Bees blog.  Becky SC is amazing and she finished Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow by commiting to 1 block a month.  I  just started a small wedding gift but I have til the end of September so I am going to do at least 1 block a month until Shores is done.  I plan on posting my progress. I have a weeks vacation next week so I plan on getting a lot of stitching done.  My favorite forum over at is having a SWAT (a stitch week along) in July so I should get some done then too!  There is a really great group of stitchers on that forum (stop by and check it out)!

I did complete a gift for my boss in time for her last day of work (she retired Monday).

I changed some of the colors to match her tastes.  She fell in love with sheep when she visited Ireland so sheep it had to be.  Sorry for the fuzzy picture but I am learning to use my smart phone as my daughter took my camera to Guyana and I didn't get it back yet.

I hope you all are having a great summer so far and I will post progress pictures soon.

Thanks for stopping by . . .

Qick Update and a give-a-way

Good Morning All,

I just wanted to drop and to let you all know that Denise over at Riverside Stitching is having a great give-a-way. Stop over and visit her and enter!!!

Memorial Day weekend we gutted out only bathroom so have been crazy trying to get it done.  Also my daughter took off for a service trip to Guyana in South America Saturday night and took my camera with her so will try to figure out how to post from my phone (or pictures will wait til after June 20th!)!

Just know I am spending my whole day stitching!!! I am working on Sheep In The Meadow by Country Cottage Needleworks. It is a retirement gift for my boss who visited Ireland and fell in love with all things sheep.  It is a really nice stitch (although I changed the lavenders to a more plum shade of purple).  I will post a picture ASAP!!

Until then have a great day and I hope you have some time to put in a few stitches yourself :)
