I made some good progress on my projects this month.

 I started and finished the 2nd Butterfly Card right after the first full moon this month.
 I made good progress on Little Fairies at Play and actually moved my scroll rods.  I am working on the bottom of the page.  It looks like I will only get one page finish this year.  I have just not had as much stitching time this year.  But I do enjoy my time when I get it.
 I started and finished another free kit from World of Cross Stitching.
 I don't know what I will do with it but will put it with my finished projects for now.
Summer Sensation the red flower is growing.  This one is nice and bright.

Now that the rain has stopped I am trying to enjoy the good weather.  Summer has just flown by.

This week I worked on Summer Sensation again.  Lots of lovely red to put on my ort jar.

I took Tuesday off to travel to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. Followed my Google map and made it there without getting lost.  On the way home we stopped at Mounds State Park.  The mosquitos were horrible.  It was a nice park and we will go back when we are better prepared for the bugs. 
We have had so much rain here that anytime you go outside you will be attacked by mosquitos.

I am back to working on Little Fairies at Play this week.  Hope to finish enough to move my scroll rods to work on the bottom of the page.

 I started and finished the second butterfly card from World of Cross Stitching #215.  I started this one on 7/4/15 and finished it on 7/5/15.
Then it was time to work on Little Fairies at Play.  I got 500 stitches in and only have 300 more to go to move the scroll rods so I can work on the second half of this page.  I am going to try and work on this every other time to get more done.  It is July already and I have not finished one page yet this year.

 This month more progress was made on Faces of Faery 90.  700 stitches complete
 And I am almost halfway done with page 7 of Little Fairies at Play.
 Butterfly Fairy Night is the project being worked on this week.  I still have 2 more days to work on it.
And I started another new project.  Summer Sensation.  I have 2 more projects ready to start.  And I have made a list of projects to start in 2016 and I am kitting them up.  I just have the urge to start new projects for some reason.  Usually I don't like having more than 3 projects being worked on at a time because I do like to have finishes.  But I am going to go ahead and start them as I have so many projects that I want to do and if I never start them, they will never get worked on or finished.

This month we were to answer the question Fantasy or Reality.  I must say that I like both.  I love stitching flowers, cars, trains.  And I enjoy my fairies which are fantasy.  I just stitch whatever catches my eye at the time.
