Well it's been such a long time since I've posted! I am still stitching though. I have been enjoying the summer with our huge garden (we are having beets, green beans, yellow and green squash and red potatoes almost every night with dinner!) This has been a great summer for us so far, with no drought, plenty of rain and a huge vegetable yield.
I had a great birthday in August and, just because they are so pretty, here is a photo of some roses my husband brought home (what a shock! he stopped picking flowers by the side of the road when someone honked at him.... so, it has been some time since he brought me flowers and these were much appreciated : )
Some of my stitching has been on other projects, so my Scarlett Letter current project is progressing at a slower pace. However, every time I pick it up again I tell myself "why don't I just stitch this Frances Marshall and put everything else aside?" It is so enjoyable for me.
I have made a lot of progress since the early days of stitching Frances Marshall:
I started outlining the figures of the serpent, angel Michael, and Adam and Eve. Also have been filling in the grass section, which though it takes time, makes for good stitching while watching "Jeopardy" re-runs (and usually getting the answers wrong), or BBC tv programs!
Here is where I am at present. I have found that doing the outlining is not at all as difficult as I had first imagined! Soon I will be filling in with stem stitch!
I do hope all of you are having a lovely summer and finding some time, maybe during vacation if you are fortunate enough to have one, to stitch on your favorite Scarlett Letter sampler!
