This is next
So far this summer has been just great! The 4th of July was very relaxing, later in the afternoon had a BBQ at relatives and watched some of the best Fireworks. It is always fun to see different fireworks every year, my brother and his girlfriend went to the NYC fireworks, nothing of course beats those, and speaking from personal experience, those are the best darn fireworks one could ever see. Simply amazing. But I saw some fireworks far from NYC in a small town and I was impressed for sure. It was nice to see family again, share stories, and learn something new everytime.
I have dug deep into the WIP bag and pulled out Ink Circles Bramble and The Rose. Isnt is just fabulous?? Tracy is an amazing designer and this is one of a many of her designs that have caught my eye. Of course I love the deep purples that she stitched hers in, but changing the color is one thing I do best. I am stitching it on Lakeside 40ct Meadow Rue with a special Ltd. Edition Gloriana Hank-a-licious color. Hard to tell of course in this pic, I just cant seem to get the colors right on this, perhaps I should consult a professional about it, get some tips or something. That would only make the most sense :).
Saturday is soon upon us and stitching with a group of friends is going to be the main attraction. Keeping up on the latest stitching and conversation is always important. The weather should be great tomorrow, not as hot as it has been, but not cold like last week :(. Wearing a sweatshirt in the middle of summer is beyond me. Cute skirts, shorts and tank tops are usually the norm, not winter parkas!!
I have started the SDW German Band Sampler this week, I had a very tiny start on it last year, ran into a small issue, now have rectified it and should be moving right along. I will post pics next week on progress. It is going to be stunning. Worth the wait I assure you!
Have a great weekend and Happy Stitching!
