It seems as though school is winding down for the Summer.
The kids have been out for over a week but I've been working to wrap up the year.
I have been finding some time to stitch and have been working on the pieces below.
Ann Lockart 1842
Star Spangled Garden
Country Cottage Needleworks
I hope to have Star Spangled Garden finished this week. Ann Lockart is my in between projects, project. I enjoy stitching it but don't mind when my attention gets diverted to another project.
They should be ready this week and I can't wait to show them to you.
Karen of Karen's Handiwork is showing us some of her older pieces in her Throwback Thursday posts. I love looking at her bin of stitched pieces from way back when.
It is amazing how our tastes change over the years and how patterns evolve with the times.
Reading her blog started me thinking about the first piece I stitch.
I started stitching in the 80's when I was about 13.
I can clearly remember the first thing I stitched so many years ago.
Over the years I lost track of the piece and have often wondered where it ended up, which started to make me wonder if I could find the kit. So, to eBay I went....
Sure enough after a few search tries I found it, bought it and it was delivered today.
I'm not sure if I will stitch it again, maybe....
But it does bring back a lot of memories of stitching it while my dad
watched IU and Celtics basketball games and mom worked her puzzle books.
I hope you are all finding your own time to stitch. I appreciate your visits and kind comments. They mean so much and keep me motivated to keep on stitchin'
