I have really no new stitching to show. For the last two weeks of summer we had a lovely visit from my Mom and we kept really busy. One of the highlights of her visit was a trip to New York City. Boy did we cram a whole lot into just a couple of days - Grand Central Station, American Museum of Natural History, Empire State Building, New York Public Library, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Central Park - and more. I can't remember the last time my feet were that tired. We all had a great time though - especially the boys.
My finishing month didn't really qualify as a finishing month. Other than my Moonlit Kitties, nothing was completely finished. I tried mounting my dragonly twice - neither method really worked. At this point, I'm not sure I am going to be able to frame it. I'm open to other ideas for finishing it. Both mounting attempts took a long time and there was the time required to undo my first attempt. My second attempt still needs undoing.
I still have Whoo's There to finish but that should be easier. Here's a pic of Whoo's There waiting for the iron to warm up. (Please excuse the poor photo - my phone takes better pics than my camera.)
I wish I had used Cocoa Bean or Tangerine Crescent Colours floss for the brown or orange. Then I could have used the coordinating rick-rack which would have been really cool. But - I didn't think of that until it was done. I do plan to stitch one of the JBW Designs Christmas trees with Poblano Pepper floss so that I can use the rick-rack when I finish it into an ornament.
I hope everyone has had a lovely summer and Welcome Fall!
