Chi Friday

I just noticed on Black Sheep's Bit of the Web that he posted a picture of his fur-babies and so did Feathers in the Nest (both great blogs), so I thought I would pass by and post my cuties!.

The top one is Jack and the bottom is Bailey. Believe it or not they are litter mates lol. Enjoy!!!

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 .....
