I know I have been 'missing in action'. It has been a rough couple of days/weeks. I am struggling again with the loss of my dear Jack. Jack's 60 birthday would be coming up on the calendar and this is affecting me more than I care to admit. I am withdrawing from life and trying to keep things together. I am okay. Please don't worry. I just can't seem to join the human race lately. I am climbing out of this hole and I do have a few things to share.
I participated in a July Exchange with the Victoria Sampler Stitchers, an on line group. I was so happy to put my contribution in the mail on Saturday. When I got home, this was waiting in my mail box. I believe the design is from Shepherd's Bush. The box opens to reveal small scissors and a thread winder. Nancy did a great job and it was a bright spot on the weekend.
I finished a piece. I wanted to do something quick and easy and patriotic. So I found this little project from Stitcher's Hideaway. I am not sure what I will do with it but it is done.
The star covered smaller piece will be placed on the main roll along with some wool pieces. The weather is been fantastic and almost too cold. It is so refreshing for July. I am sure warmer weather will be coming but for now - I am trying to enjoy it.
