Goodbye July!

If anyone is looking for Terri's old blog (, she lost it but has a new one!  You can find her at  Her new one is beautiful and I wish her success!

I am so glad to be done with July.  I am so tired of the hot, humid temperatures we've had here but unfortunately it is going to be pretty much the same for the first week in August.  Well, we are getting that much closer to Fall.

I have a few photos to show you of some projects I've been working on.  This is the Grand Marquoir that was given as a freebie in 2009 by Isabelle Vautier.  I really need to finish this one.  It's been dragging on too long! 

Winter Wonderland is a nice cool stitch for a hot summer's day! 

My progress on Melicent Turner by LHN.  This is a wonderful project for summer!

Look at the birthday gift I got from my stitching buddy, Erin.  She made the strawberry from the BBD book, It's Berry Time.  It is just adorable!  She did a beautiful job with the finishing.

 And my friend, Shelley, sent me these scissors for my birthday.  My birthday is on Flag Day - is this the perfect gift, or what?!!  Shelley is also the owner of Covered Bridge Needle Arts in Bridgewater, Pa.  If you are ever in the Pittsburgh area, it is worth your time to go visit her shop!  You won't be sorry!

That's about all I have for today.  I hope you are staying cool and comfortable so you are able to stitch up a storm (and then maybe it would cool off for a moment or two).
