Amelia and Maggie

What a long, busy weekend!  Then I had to play catch up at work when I came back on Wednesday.

My friend, Bertha, was visiting from West Virginia and we were able to do some stitching - and talking and talking!  It was such a fun weekend but it passed too quickly!  I took a picture of Bertha stitching in my living room but the picture is on my old phone.  I am going to transfer my pictures to my new phone sometime today with my daughter's help.

Here is my progress on Amelia.  I brought the chart to work to enlarge and that has helped a lot.  This "getting old" thing is really getting old!  I am hoping to finish her up this week - this was a very enjoyable stitching project.


I started another old design on Memorial Day called Liberty by Merrilly Beams - a favorite designer from way back in the 80's.  I have stitched quite a few of her designs.  She designed a sweet Wedding/Anniversary Heart Sampler that I have stitched for 9 different people!  I stitched it recently for my stepson and his fiance - they are getting married on June 11th!  I will try to get a picture posted on my blog this weekend.

Mary Hannah Gipson has been framed and absolutely adorable.  I will try to share that one with you sometime this weekend, also.  I have a new phone/camera and learning this new technology is VERY challenging for me!

Here is my little sweetie, Maggie.  She is almost 9 months old and growing like a little pugweed!

I hope everyone is off to a good start with their summer plans.  The weather here in Maryland was very hot on Monday - 102 degrees but a little milder now and low humidity.  Last night the temps got down to 48 degrees - great sleeping weather but it's not going to last!

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to read my blog.  Hope you have some great stitching time!
