Hullo, everyone. I did the last little bit of stitching on Cathy‘s RR and now it is ready to be sent out. Cathy asked that we stitch something reminiscent of where we live. I chose to stitch the house from LHN’s Emmaline Whitcomb (Dear Diary series) because it had that sort of Southwestern feel to it. I also stitched a patch of bluebonnets next to the house, since it is the state flower.
I love how they turned out! I only added the suggestion of a few clouds in the sky, because there is so much sky here in Texas, no mountains or tall trees, just lots and lots of open sky. Oh, and I just LOVE the fabric Cathy chose, 32 ct Vintage Light Examplar from Lakeside Linens – just wonderful to stitch on. I will definitely be purchasing some of this in the future for myself!
I think the bluebonnets pick up the blue from Carol’s flag too, which is nice! I hope you like it, Cathy!
Also, on the neighborhood front, Carol has finished stitching her part for my RR. She chose to stitch part of Prairie Schooler’s Pumpkin Patch. Carol checked in with me while she was stitching to see if I minded having multiple moons in my neighborhood, since Judith had already stitched one. I told her I was ok with a funky, multi-moon neighborhood. So, she obliged! I love this block!
And the whole piece is really turning out great! Thank you so much, Carol! And if you’re in the mood for something else a little spooky, take a look at this.
That’s about it for me today…I hope to get in a little stitching this evening. Not sure what I’ll work on yet though. But, I have a little idea…
I am grateful for a lovely day out at the races.
