In the Garden

I did decide to leave off the fence at the bottom of this sampler – on 32ct it fits pretty well in a 9×12 frame. I think this one needs a bit of distressing or something, but I am glad I went with white over fancy gold – it fits my cottage style better.

I’ve made a start on the Cinderella Sampler, over 2 on 40ct with 1 strand. Sorry about the headless step-ladies, it has been a full weekend.

Sandra in Portugal has received my squares (I was getting worried). I used bits of the Bunnies in the Garden chart by With my Needle for these.

As of yesterday, it has now been over 90 degrees here 15 days in a row, that is three days away from the record…it is currently 93 – so make that 16 days in a row.

I’m off to pick Kellen up from the Middle School Mud Pit – taking my camera along. Kellen doesn’t care much for dirt, but I hope to get a few good pictures before they hose everyone down for the ride home.
