Has it really been so long since I checked in here? Rather, gave a proper update on what I've been working on? I do check in and read comments, which I am very appreciative of receiving by the way. I was hoping I could post updates at least twice a week and then a month will flew by so quickly. But I have been stitching. I've mostly been working on Blackbird Designs' "Pinkhill Manor" which I am very much enjoying stitching. I take it to work with me and try and spend at least fifteen minutes or half an hour before I clock in. Even though it's not a huge chunk of time the stitches really do begin to add up. Will I be able to finish it before the end of the month (and have it framed) is the question. I need to check on the deadline for entry into my State Fair in August. Fingers crossed. I had such high hopes of finishing several projects and now I think I will be lucky (and happy) to have just one entry.
There is still a chance that I can stitch the Just Nan biscornu that I mentioned last time, but even a small project of JN seems labor intensive--so many color changes. But biscornus are just about my favorite thing to stitch and finish, so I might give it a try.
I've been working on my Mystery Sampler, too, and hopefully will give an update of that soon. My digital camera is practically dead and I need to invest in a new one, but I've been able scrape by so far with the poor (very old) HP that I've had for years.
I hope everyone is having a great summer and not wilting too much in the heat. We finally got a break from the near (or over) 100F days we've been having here in Nebraska, but mid-80s with humidity is still not as nice as I wish it could be. Summer in the Midwest, though, what can I expect, right?
