I went back and put a few more stitches into the Blackbird SAL. The eyelets, while pretty, seem SO time consuming! 16 stitches to each one! I debated on going backwards and trying something different but I do like the effect so onward she goes...
And, of course, I have something new too! lol!
I have started up with Hannah Pepper, one of my bucket list stitches! There have been a few finished Hannahs posted on facebook recently and they finally gave me the push I needed to pull out my Fine Lines issues. I also want to thank Mary and Ellen for their thoughts on color options. I have figured out my palette using a combination of what is called for and some that are not.
Since moving to Connecticut I love seeing all different wildlife in my yard... chipmunks, ducks, wild turkey, egrets, foxes, and deer, but imagine my SURPRISE when I found a BEAR outside my back door!! Unfortunately, I was not quick enough to get a pic, but it was amazing to see. It looked like a young adult and I think it was just as surprised to see me too! So sorry no picture, but this pretty deer was very willing to strike a pose...
Last weekend I went to a Weissbier festival at the local German restaurant. Weissbier is a wheat beer which makes it a bit sweeter. Perfect and refreshing for a warm summer evening. Prost!
So that is all for June... it has been very exciting watching all the World Cup coverage. GO USA!! I am glad it will continue into July, along with Wimbledon tennis!
Have a great week! Happy Stitching! xxxxx
