There has been a little bit of stitching going on since my last post but not as much as I would like to have gotten done. I needed a few red, white, and blue threads in my life over the last week or two so I started my Melissa Shirley canvas with the little boy holding the Flag. I am using a stitch guide by Carolyn Hedge Baird. This time last year I stitched Melissa's little girl with the watermelon slice. You can see her photo over to the right side of the blog. Both canvases are from a series that Melissa Shirley put out about three or four years ago.
Here's my little patriotic boy so far -
I'm working on the stars this weekend and may start putting in some of the diagonal stripes in the background, too. Such a fun, small project!
I also finished up Egg #9 in the From Russia with Love club. Another satisfying finish -
Egg #10 - the blue egg with the green gems - is another current work in progress. Stitching 4 Jessicas is the extent of my progress on this egg - but it's a start!
I had a very enjoyable July 4th weekend in Jacksonville with Andrew and Anna. It seemed like a short visit but it was wonderful as always to be with them. I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend as well!
Have a wonderful week ahead!
