Stitching news. I am working on an exchange piece currently so no pictures. No more progress on Dandelion Sampler but I posted a picture one of my favorite Drawn Thread pieces. Perennial Borders. I hand dyed a piece of linen pale yellow to stitch it on years ago. Still a favorite of mine. I have been working on the quilt. Hope to post an update this weekend of it. I had to wait on a walking foot to come in for my machine. I am excited to be getting ready for a finish on it and see my second project dancing before my minds eyes.(Clouded a bit by all the cross stitch projects floating in there but there none the less)
Thanks for stopping by,

This is our view from the top of Devil's Courthouse. It was quite a hike up to the top and I was at least 10 years younger the last time I went up that little hill. You can view 4 states from the top of the mountain. It really is quite a lovely view. Below is a picture of me and the kids at the start of the hike. You can see the peak over our shoulders. On the way down a 75 year old man was climbing up and was not even the least bit winded. Talk about a kick in the gut. I had to stop 3 times to catch my breath. Another push for the diet and exercise plan.
Better get back to life,

I am excited to be getting ready for a vacation. Packing 3 projects. Yes, I have an over-achieving spirit, but I would hate to have to stalk down a stitching show to get something else to work on during the break. Dandelion Sampler, I Sigh Not by C Street Designs (almost finished) and not sure about the third. I dare not pack a small because the others will grow moss or get covered in dust. No fobs, no needle books, no needle rolls. I must stick to the plan...
We are taking our bikes to the mountains so I will have a couple of days on the bikes to mix with the days of stitching. The rotten dogs are coming along with 3 teenage boys.YIKES! How much food will they consume? We normally ride the bikes the bikes but you can see how hard that would all be to get on 2 motorcycles. :) Reminds me we need to get a house sitter. Thankfully we have several college and career aged youth to choose from in our church.
I was in such a rush to finish my last start I forgot to take a picture (otherwise known as evidence I can finish a project) It was a gift and the post office was closing in literally 10 minutes. I was a crazy woman trying to get it into the post on time. Hop over to http://teresasheartfeltstitches.blogspot.com/ wish her a belated happy birthday and check it out. Under the July 3rd post.
Thanks for stoping by,
