I finished my July monthly (Lizzie Kate). I just love this little frame. I have all the months stitched and all except for May are fully finished. I missed the mark with May and I have misplaced the buttons but I will have it ready for display before May rolls around again.
I stitched these last year - I'll have to do some looking for designers on these (I'm not good at keeping up with notes)
Plopped a little sign on the fireplace - the crosses are year-round.
My favorite place to decorate for holidays
I didn't take a close-up of the stitched piece (dunno why) but it's Lizzie Kate's July Stamp.
Little bits of red, white and blue
In the guest room
I stitched this one 10+ years ago (pretty sure it was before our 2009 move) so if you know the designer hit me up and I'll post it. I'm sure I have the chart - where?
Do you have big plans for the day? Fireworks? I have flower beds that need fresh mulch.
Today was another 'first' without her - their wedding anniversary. 58 years.
We took dad to breakfast, then we took her roses.
Mother loved flowers. When she could no longer get out to see them, Daddy would take pictures of whatever was blooming so she could see them. Between Dad, kids and grandkids, we make sure she always has flowers.
Since I missed showing my Easter decor, I thought I would share a just a couple of photos. My rooster dolled up for Easter.
My April, Lizzie Kate, monthly
I did get May stitched but I didn't get the buttons on and now I've misplaced them. I have a few bee treasures (Mill Hill) that I can use if I don't find the buttons (or some I can use, before 2020). Not gonna worry about it until then. I have July stitched - just need to get it mounted sometime this week. Since I started with August, this finishes up that series!
There are no stitchy stores in NYC (that I know of) but I picked up this little pin at the Empire State Building and made it into a needle minder. Another Lizzie Kate monthly - last one in that series! (except the bonus chart) Took it to NY with me but didn't get many stitches in.
I did get a couple of souvenirs
A charm for my Pandora bracelet
And a teenie tiny shopping bag from Tiffany's!
I have another finish (need to get it framed) and some happy mail to share next time.
It's hot and humid here in Texas. It feels like walking into an oven when you walk outside but I've been trying to get a little weeding done in the mornings - need to get it done and put out some new mulch. I'm a little behind but it will get done.
Hope you are staying nice and cool wherever you are!
I hope this is not all wonky-jawed when I hit publish - it is when I preview it but it looks fine in my compose screen so I don't know how to fix it.
