Two updates for the price of one

For June's Smalls SAL I finished a little bookmark for a friend.  It's part of a BBD sampler called My Quaker House.  I just love this subject .... a little house with a big flower towering over it .... and this one is pink to boot.   Makes me smile every time.

Unfortunately, I didn't get much stitching time in for IHSW. I only managed to make the little house from above into a bookmark.  And all that involved was ironing a piece of fabric to the back of the stitched piece and cutting it out with pinking shears.  Not a good stitchy weekend.  No, it was a weekend for the dogs.

And speaking of dogs ..... here's River and Willow napping on the back of my couch.  Check out the tongue.  I guess he doesn't want his pic taken  :o)

Have a good day!

A quick update

I finished a little witch over the weekend for the Halloween Ornament SAL.  This is a freebie from The Little Stitcher called Vintage Witch.

Love that nose!

I stitched some more of El Muro II.  My little village is almost finished, just a few more houses to go.

And I finished The Way to Happiness sampler.

Love it!

Have a good one!

WIPocalypse update for June

I actually spent some more time on Mary Wigwam for WIPocalypse this month. The flower pot on the left is finished and on the upper right, I started the light blue plant under the rose wreath (see the little arrows).  While in this area I noticed that the yellow flower next to it wasn't complete.  So I completed it. Yay!

And then I decided to pick up Autumn Log Cabin which has been languishing for months now.  I stitched the top 2 oak leaves and their accompanying acorns.  I'm getting ready to round the corner now, making this last border half finished.  Double yay!


That's about it for this month's old WIPs.  Hopefully next month will go as well.
