Blog Update

Summer time is here in Texas. It is still in the 90s every day with a little rain shower here and there.
I just heard thunder but haven't seen any rain yet. We could use a drop or two.
I still finding time to get some stitching done every day and have completed two pieces this past week. 
     The Button Up Birdies #2, February Whiskey Jack, by Cathy Jean-The Victoria Sampler

I saw a wreath like this with ornaments on it and thought my birds would look good on one.
I just have them laying on it because I am still stitching more birds.
.     Kitchen Towel with Poinsettia by The Prairie Schooler. This is a freebie on their website.
This is the 3rd item I have stitched for my friend's church fall bazaar.
Made some progress on several of my WIPS this last week

Boy you are busy! What a great way to finish your cross stitch - I never would have thought of a wreath for pillows. I'm making a wreath with a cross stitch welcome sign that's interchangeable.
Love your progresses and finishes. SO pretty!

Lovely projects, Joyce. I like the wreath idea for your bird ornaments. I have some stitching for which this would be a good idea.

Lovely projects! I'm a fan of Victoria Sampler designs and have done a couple of the birdies, but haven't finished them up yet. I should get on that. :)
