There's nothing like getting back to stitching after a stitching dry spell. I hadn't worked on any of my cross stitch projects in a long time, so was happy to go to a stitch day with my fellow needleworkers.
For my birthday, Sheila gave me the chart "Tulip's Praise" by Gracewood Stitches. You can see the chart here. When I gathered the DMC colors for the chart, I was instantly happy. I decided to stitch it on 18 count evenweave over one, in a not-quite-white color. I did make a little progress at stitch day. Yes, just a little, owing to the fact that I am not the speediest stitcher on the planet, and hey, we had to eat the yummy dessert that Peggy brought and do our traditional gift exchange.
I also am continuing on my little Just Nan project, "Jasmine Mix". Lots of color changes, but when it starts coming together, it's an amazing result.
I will also be participating in the "Where Bloggers Create" blog hop on July 12th, sponsored by My Desert Cottage. You can find out more about this event by clicking on the button in my sidebar. Even if you don't choose to take part in this, you can still visit the many blogs participating and check out their amazing work spaces. You'll find so many ideas for setting up your creative space, organizing, and decorating your crafting area, and also see the the materials that other crafters use. This, to me, is just fascinating. So please take a look to see if you're interested.
