Good-bye Summer!


Summer by The Stitcherhood

Today was the last day of summer. It was a perfect day, the sun was out with white fluffy clouds and a cool breeze that lightly touched your skin. It was so beautiful. My father and brother went fishing, so I took advantage of the quiet house and stripped my bed and washed the sheets and comforter. My bed is going to smell very fresh when I go to bed tonight. I just love fresh sheets. I do have a few finishes I can show off, including Summer by The Stitcherhood. It is a freebie you can get on their website. The fabric is a hand-dyed aida. Someone had send me the piece in one of my exchanges before I started blogging. The threads are DMC 995 and 996 with Weeks Dye Works Banana Popsicle. I am going to finish it as a pin pillow, like I did with Spring.
My Country by Lizzie Kate
I did finish Lizzie Kate My Country. I love how it came out. This was a kit I brought at Silver Needle in Tulsa, when I was there in 2008. I used the DMC threads instead of the speciality threads. I am going to frame the piece, just did not get to it yet.
Skate by Count My Blessings

I finished Berly's Christmas ornament RR. This little bird is from Count My Blessings. It was a very quick stitch. It had flown to the next person and visiting her, lol. I just hope Berly loves it as much as I loved stitching it. Sorry the picture is so dark, I think I didn't use a flash.

I hoped everyone had enjoyed the last day of summer. I have to go stitch a Christmas ornament for an exchange as I watch the results of Dancing With The Stars.

Many hugs,
Vicky

I love the Summer fabric! It's basically summer here all year round, so I will miss autumn & winter more than summer!
