I worked on Gathering Honey this past week. I am now down to backstitching the inner garden. I also have some french knots to do. Yuck. I might see how beads would look. Definitely want to get this one done before the end of the year.

I started a new project today, Freight Train by Patricia Gaskin. I am stitching it on 18ct Ivory Aida using one strand of floss. Not to many bright colors in this one. Will post a picture after my week is up.

This past week I worked on Pinecones. I didn't get much stitching time but did get a little more done. It is really a struggle for me to work on this one - it is on linen (which I don't usually stitch on) and it has speciality stitches. I switched to my next project early - Gathering Honey. I am backstitching away.

This past week I worked on my Cat Christmas Ornaments. I did get quite a bit done. I am down to the backstitching. I seem to have a few projects in the backstitching phase.

Saturday we took my daughter back to college. She is on the welcoming committee and got to move in early so it was not as crowded as last year. We drove around the area and found this old fashioned soda fountain. I won't see her again until parents weekend in October.

I worked on Orchids this past week. It is fairly quick to stitch. Up this week are my Cat Christmas Ornaments.

I have school registration for my son this week and take my daughter back to college on Saturday. So stitching time might be limited.

I did get some backstitching done this week on Gathering Honey. Most nights I was too tired to stitch. Still a long ways to go. I will be working on Orchids this week.

I did manage to read 12 books in July. Added them to my list at the top of the blog. You can tell I rode the bus more often this month.

Took my daughter to finish her back to school shopping today. Now I just need to get my Son some new clothes and we will be all set.
