Little Fairies at Play. I haven't taken an updated picture of this one in awhile but I do work on it every other week.
Garden of Faith Hope and Love. Took this on my vacation to Pigeon Forge and did not touch it. So I worked on it this past week.
We also went to the Smokey Mountain National Park.
Hiked back to this waterfall. Temperatures were in the mid 90's plus humid all week. We also spent a day at Dollywood and a day walking around Gatlinburg. We had a good relaxing time which is what vacation is all about.
Summer Sensation was worked on since last month's posting.
I have watched snippets of the Olympics. Seems like it was always track and Bolt was running/winning.
I am also re-doing my bedroom. It is almost empty and the painting can begin. Then new carpet and some new furniture.
I worked on Summer Sensation this past week. Finished another flower.
It has been so hot here I have not mowed my lawn in 3 weeks. I have been waiting for a cool day and have not found one yet.
My daughter gave us free tickets to the Brickyard 400. So we spent last Sunday at the Indianapolis Speedway. Tempatures were 92 but with humidity it felt like 108. I wish all of the sweating led to weight loss. But it didn't.
One more week of work (and lots of overtime) and then I leave on vacation. I will pick one of my smaller projects to take with me.
I worked on 3 projects this month. Freedom by Joan Elliott. Finished the E and started the D.
Still plugging away on page 9 of Little Fairies at Play with the goal of finishing this page before the end of the year.
Closing in our my first page finish for Faces of Faery 90.
One more week then I leave on vacation. Taking a project with me. In the past I have taken Summer Sensation and gotten sick on both trips that I had it packed as my travel project. So I will be leaving it at home and taking Garden of Faith Hope Love.
This month I worked on 3 projects. Little Fairies at Play page 9
Garden of Faith Hope and Love
Butterfly Fairies Night. A little progress made on each one.
This month's question is do you stitch more in the Summer or Winter. I was just thinking about this as I looked at my meager progress. I do stitch more in the Winter as I am trapped more inside. The Summer brings yardwork, trips and other outside activities.
I will be watching the Summer Olympics as much as I can and stitching while watching. But I will not be participating in the stitch a-alongs. Of course I might change my mind. If I do participate it will be on the one where I go for distance on one project.
Worked on Butterfly Fairy Night this week. Only 2 nights and stitched just a few lengths into the moon. I worked late every night this past week so not much stitching time.
On Saturday my sister ran with my Dad in a 5K for Fathers Day. He was the oldest participant and got this flag. They finished in 42 minutes. Not bad and my Father enjoyed it. He will be telling us about it for a long time. He has dementia and short term memory is usually gone but this he is talking about. Good memories for the family. I went as the official photographer and my brother, his wife and 7 of their nine kids were there to cheer them on. We all enjoyed it and are looking forward to next year's Fathers Day run.
