Hello stitching friends,

I am home from spending the evening with my local stitching friends, and thought it was time to share a couple of cute finishes with you.

I had so much fun stitching Ira and Ida Crow. The charts were generously lent to me by an online stitching friend and fellow blogger! How nice was that? Thank you again, Carol!

Please forgive the creases, I rolled them up to take to stitch night to show.

-I just think they are too cute. I haven't decided if I will sew them into fat pillows or search for frames. But I'm pretty happy with them.

Well blogger decided to put this picture on it's side...but i wanted to share my current project with you. It's 'summer' by Cross Eyed Cricket. I am enjoying this project. After this one is done i will just have autumn left to do in this series.

It's still beastly hot and humid here in Illinois. I have not had any desire to spend time outside, its just too miserable. Plus with the drought conditions everything is drying up. I've been busy stitching and reading in my free time.

Our summer reading program concluded last week with a carnival. It was a great turn out, and I think the kids had a lot of fun. Our daughter, Holly manned the wacky hair coloring booth. I assisted. It was a busy and popular destination! Glad that is over.

I hope you are all managing to keep cool and find time for some stitching.

  2. The little crow family is adorable! It will be fun to see how you finish them.

  3. Both crows are marvelous! And the Summer piece is beautiful! I really love that series. I think I may have to bite the bullet and buy the charts.

  5. Ida and Ira Crow came out fantastic. Can't wait to see how you finish them.
