After the cortisone shot to the knee I am getting around much better and relatively pain free, I am still a bit off balance so I keep the cane nearby. The knee still starts to buckle but I have been lucky enough to catch it.
I finished the embroidery on the Flower of Life piece, washed off the stitch and wash away product and thrilled to see the rainbow threads didn't run; I was concerned because I'd read several comments about the Threadworx floss not always being colorfast.
These cute wonky pumpkins for the Fall and the Snowmen for Winter, though I guess those are Jackolanterns so maybe get them done for Halloween.
I recently signed up to do the Kathy Schmitz Garden Sampler Follow along on YouTube.
I signed up through her Facebook Page here https://www.facebook.com/KathySchmitzStitches/ I love her designs and have several of her patterns and books.
While unpacking and reorganizing my fabric bins I came across a nifty fabric panel from a few years ago.
If my memory is correct I bought it to possibly use with some Old World Santa's of the Month stitcheries I bought a few years ago though I haven't come across them yet. Well that's all the news for now on my stitching and I will be posting at Kathy's Quilts for the first August Slow Sunday Stitching right here:
On another note I am half way through The Summer of '69 and enjoying it more than I thought I would. I love when I am surprised by a book.
I finished Steeped in Murder a few days ago when my cold got the best of me and I didn't have the energy to stitch. It was a fun light read though I am not sure I will continue on with the series, this is the first book in the series.
I had some time to get some letter writing done yesterday with the move I fell behind on my replies so it's nice to have the time to sip some tea and write a few letters. And yesterday I heard from a friend I hadn't spoken too in over 20 years and just like that we talked like no time had passed between us.
