Happy 4th of July!

July 20Wooly 20Tyme

For those of us in the U.S., today is Independence Day, which often involves barbecue, fireworks, and watermelon. For those of us in North Texas, it involves rain. But, nonetheless, a perfect day to complete the finishing on my little July blanket for my Wooly Tyme sheep.

I spent the rest of the afternoon working on my Quaker Garden and watching Treasure Hunters. I am loving the colors in this. I haven’t used the Red Pear thread yet, but the blue and browns and white just pop against the fabric. I am using the recommended R&R fabric for this. Is it just me, or does the R&R fabric tend to be really stiff? I hope to work on QG a little more tonight, and who knows what I’ll work on the rest of the week. I can’t believe I only have to work three days this week – and then it is the weekend again.

I am grateful for traditions that were built by our country, our ancestors and that my husband and I are building together.

  1. Nice start Michelle!

    I’m not fond of R&R linen, I must admit, which is why I switched to Lakeside and I’ll probably substitute for all the LF designs. If you’ve never tried Lakeside Linen, you really should – it’s gorgeous to stitch on 🙂

  2. Ooo, the Red Pear was my favorite – may well be one of my all time fave WDW colors – enjoy 🙂 I already miss working on this one!!
