Some Finishes and Starts

Good Morning All,
I hope all you who are in your summer season are enjoying it so far. It has been a brutal week here in PA. Hot and humid. Today we are waiting and watching for severe storms to start. At least I have been a busy girl (and not just at work lol). I have a few finishes and 2 starts.

First let me show you the progress I have made on the Little House Needleworks Virtues series. I am just loving this series and have promised myself that, for a change, I will start and finish them as they arrive each month.

and ...

soon to  be completed Faith.

Now for the long ignored Shores ....

Block 2

block 3 (it's a beginning)

And finally...

Hannah Purington - Little House Needleworks Diary Series
Stitched on 14 count aida - tea dyed by me using Vonna's Baking and Basting tutorial.
It's easy to do and I love how it came out so I am dying more and doing 2 more companion 
pieces. If you are interested you can find the tutorial here

Also a quick reminder that Google Reader is going away so please follow my blog on Bloglovin
It's easy to do and I like the format. 

Well hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go. At least it's only 4 days a week 4 hours a day for the summer which is really nice. Next week off to the camper for a week. I will post pictures when I get back (yep really will) I hope to get some reading done and a lot of stitching.

See you in July!!! Until then happy stitching .....


  1. Nice progress! Have a nice vacation and time of refreshing.

  3. Those are some great finishes Rose! If only I could work those hours!! But.. they would only PAY me for them too... can't have that! Enjoy the camping trip! Hugs!
