Sunday May 29 Update

Enjoying a weekend of staying inside and stitching and finishing stitching pieces. It is in the high 90s here this weekend with no rain which we need badly.
The new picture on my blog was made the night my grandson went to prom with a friend.
He is only a sophmore, but his friend is a senior and invited him to go. Of course, I think he is a good looking Texan.
My progress this past week on WIP seem to go slower, but I did finish my Golf piece(waiting on the frame now) and another Holiday ornament. I finished the holiday ornaments with a blanket stitch, which I had never tried before.
I think I need a little more practice with the blanket stitch.
What a month of May, I have had. I have now won 4 giveaway, just learned of another. WOW, I haven't been this lucky.
 What a pair! True Texans.
 First time to try a blanket stitch and I think I need more practice. I stuffed the ornaments with polyfiber.
 One more leaf to go and then I will have two pages completed out of 16.
 A little more done on the Pumpkin Patch.
 Almost have 4 pages completed on both ends of the tablerunner.
 Completed the bricks and almost got the brown done for the lettering for the next panel.
 All I need to do now is the outlining and I will have another Greeting card done.
 The February Violet is coming along nicely. The colors are great.
I finished my first 28ct piece, which I am proud of because I didn't think I could see 28 ct. Now I am waiting on the frame to come in from Kay's.

Wow - you've been busy stitching. I am a new evenweave convert myself - isn't it great stuff!

Hope the weather breaks for you soon. It's beastly hot here in Ohio this weekend too.

Stay cool!

Love the photo of your pair of Texans;-)
Your progress on your stitching are coming along so beautifully.
I love those Heinziet charts. Congrats on finishing.
