2013 completed projects

Hope you are all well and enjoying a wonderful summer. Here it is very hot (we are expecting 117 F in the weekend). Yes, summer has arrived.

Sometimes I wonder if I shouldn't just stop this whole blogging business. However, since it is a good way to record my projects I guess I won't shut down just yet.

My dear Margaret,your stitching is spectacular!

As I paged down, I had to enlarge each photo and admire your skills. The Liberty Angel is timed perfectly for July 4. Hower MacDonald Maple Leaf absolutely floored me! The detail is gorgeous. Lynne Nicoletti designed a winner. Lucky Franke.

I'm glad you blogged today. I was just thinking of slowing my life down and sit in the shade and stitch.

Thinking of you often

Glad to see a new post from you. No, don't shut down your blog, I always love to see what stitching friends in other countries are up to and what they are stitching. And you have a lot of wonderful pieces finished in the meantime. Congratulations!
