It's the last day of May, and if I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say "Where did May go?" ... well I'd be on the Scarlet Letter website ordering a whole cart full of supplies! I don't know why the month of May seems to speed by, but every year it seems to be over just as I am settling into it. We have had a busy, busy month ... all good ... our girls are back from college for the summer, they are starting their summer internships, part-time jobs, and trying to catch up with all their friends, so our house will continue to be a busy one! But I am a happy mama to have our family all together again for the summer months!
Needless to say, my stitching time has suffered a wee bit, but something is better than nothing! And look what I have to show ...
... the second tree completed!
So now both stem-stitched trees are finished, I have conquered my anxiety of the stem stitch, and I even took a big step and ordered "Rebecca Cullin" which I have always loved and never thought I would attempt to stitch because of all the stem stitching involved.
A side note ... Sandra just posted her completed "Rebecca". (If you haven't seen it yet ... or if you are like me and need to see it over and over again! ... you can find her post on Blog One) Sandra's work is beautiful and I can only hope that my "Rebecca" will be half as lovely as hers!
But I'm getting ahead of myself, I have a few other projects to complete before I start "Rebecca", so getting back to Miss Sarah, here is how she looks today ...
Hope everyone is enjoying some stitching time. Oh and by the way, Nicola ... please keep your Candy Crush addiction to yourself! :) :) :) :) I asked my girls if they knew about it and their response was "oh, mom don't even try it, it's crazy and you can't stop!" Did I listen? ... nope! ... am I now trying to master level 13? ... yep! ... hopefully before I wear out the battery on my phone!
Have a great weekend!
