It’s Going to Be a Lovely Day

Actually, it’s not. It’s going to be a massively stifling, sweat-inducing, walking through bath water, hot, humid day. But, for now, I’m inside, the sun is shining through my front windows, the house is quiet and peaceful and all feels right in my little world. I got up early because Phoebe had to go outside and then I just didn’t feel like going back to sleep. Usually, we sleep in until ungodly hours of the morning or afternoon on the weekend, but today I felt like getting up and greeting the morning. So, I’m going to sit and stitch and enjoy the calm of the morning in air conditioned comfort. 🙂

While I’m here, I’ll show you pictures of the two pieces I completed while we were in Europe. Yes, I did actually manage some stitching. Mostly on the plane, but a little bit at both hotels, as well. You’ll find the design to be almost nauseatingly familiar…

That’s right, two more Just Nan Butterfly Heart designs down and just one more to go before I finish my rainbow of butterflies. I started the remaining purple one on the flight home. I decided to stitch all of the butterflies on exactly the same fabric, so I have to redo the purple one, as well. This time, I changed colors so that they will go with the previous selections a little better, while I was at it.

Now it’s back to my shameful new starts. I really should be working on a wedding piece that is long overdue and will hopefully done for their first anniversary, but I had a sale/trade offer come in for some Lorri Birmingham tin cover kits in my stash that I actually wanted to stitch, so I’m going to stitch them up so that I can send them out when I hear back from the woman.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend and stays cool or warm, depending on where you are.
