Happy 4th

Happy 4th of July everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. Lots of summer activities - followed by lots more relaxation.

We're getting ready for our summer trip - taking the train all the way to Florida. Should be quite an adventure. My boys haven't been on a train before so even a short train ride would have been an adventure. Plus we get to take the car. The nice part of traveling this way is that I don't have to worry about all the limitations on liquids, gels, etc. for carry on luggage on an airline. There aren't as many limitations on my stitching projects either - so in honor of the trip, I am gifting myself a new project (both of my boys and my hubby have their birthdays within this week and I'm feeling left out). I'm deciding between Slicker Parade from Xs and Ohs and a design called "Magi" which is an old Janlynn chart that I have always loved but haven't had a chance to stitch.

I have made some progress on my 'travel project' - Cherry Blossoms fob. So far it is going more smoothly than I anticipated - possibly because it is such a small project. I have finished the stitching on one side and I have stitched all of the ThreadWorX thread for the second side. I wanted to start with the ThreadWorX on the second side just to be sure that I had enough. If I was going to come up short with the overdyed thread, I wanted to frog it without messing up any other stitching. Up until now, I haven't brought the beads with me. They would be way too easy to bump and knock over in the car.

On the shop front - stay tuned for the Christmas in July sale details. Lots of fun stuff!

  1. It seems I'm on the right track, I hope I can do well. The result was something I did and was doing to implement it.
