Christmas in July

I finished this pretty little lady a few days ago.  Because I inadvertently made her 2 columns thinner (who would complain about that?) and 2 rows shorter (bummer!) I adjusted the border a bit.

There is a new Christmas ornie SAL starting in August which I've joined.  Since I am already stitching some Christmas ornies this year, it seemed the perfect SAL to join.  The subject for August is Santa and happily, Santa was on my list for next month ... doubly perfect.

It has finally stopped raining in Pennsylvania (hooray!) and the beags took time to catch some well deserved rays.

Summer has finally arrived!

July update

Not much to show since last month.  Just a few smalls (I don't fell like working on the big projects right now).   I did, however, remember to take a picture of Autumn Log Cabin's progress from June.  It wasn't much but every little bit gets it closer to 'done'.

My haunted house for the Halloween Ornament SAL is from Handblessings.  I changed the look of this one significantly by changing the threads and fabric.

And finally, a group of snowmen from Prairie Schooler.  These will be made into ornaments for kids stuck in the hospital over Christmas.  All except the little one.  We were supposed to stitch on 14 ct fabric but I mistakenly grabbed 18 ct instead for the first one.

I'm afraid my whole stitching schedule has gone to hell and probably won't get back on track for awhile.  My dad died over a month ago.  My mom died 14 years ago.  I'm sure they're glad to be together again but I miss them both.
