Some WIPs

Blogger and I have problems with each other sometimes, which is why I'm posting twice in one day! At the top is Strawberry House--I love the colors used in this one--very bright and cheery.
Then there's Snow Garden. This is very relaxing and easy to stitch. I love the soft muted shades of the thread used in this design. I will be travelling to Tulsa and the Silver Needle for the weekend to meet the BBD ladies and I couldn't be more excited!
Next is Lizzie Kate's Summer Fab Fob kit. So cute and fun to stitch, I'll have it done in no time. We all need those quick finishes to keep us inspired!
Last but not least is Quinn, my boy cat. He will be 12 years old this fall and is just a sugar cookie. The other cats are girls and they keep him in line.
Have a nice weekend everyone!

Another Design to be Framed

Nobody Loves Me on 30 ct WDW Old Mill Java with the recommended DMC
I'm really happy to have this one finished. It was fun to stitch but the latticework got kind of tiresome after awhile. I started this one in early spring so it was fun to work on while spring was actually here--it's definitely gone now! We have 115 degree heat index today. Hot, hot hot.

The Absentminded Squirrel by Of Female Worth in a beautiful frame that brings out the colors in this piece just perfectly. Framed by Michaels--I think they did a great job.

Earth Sampler by Primitive Needle. This was such a fun one to stitch even though I had to frog quite a bit. I love all the individual elements of this piece and the vibrant colors throughout. Sorry about the glare.
Last day of the 3-day weekend. It's been a quiet one here despite all the fireworks. It rained most of the day on the 4th and today has been quite gloomy. I'm always grateful for extra days off however!
Thanks for the lovely comments on my previous post. I really appreciate having some readers. I plan to post some of the WIPs I'm working on at the moment. The list is sure growing--I can't seem to stop myself from starting new projects every week! Hope your weekend was a good one.
