I was on a reading binge, enjoying the Millennium Trilogy, as you saw on my last post. Then all it took was a couple of not-so-great books and the reading spell was broken. I couldn't find anything that could keep my attention, despite a stack of books available. Oh well, that just opened the window back to stitching. And back to the needle I went!
Here's the silver lining:
Mary's Best Handworke, by With Thy Needle and Thread. Finished! Ta-da. It took me two months to finish it and I'm so happy it's done!
After that I got back some of my stitching groove, so I went back to an older piece from May. This is how I left Salina Dunwoody, with a bunch of stitches to be frogged.
And here is how Salina looks today - much much prettier!
Hmmm, I just noticed the photos look very different in colour. I would say the first photo of Salina shows more of the colours in real life.
And if you are thinking "Gee, she must not be so busy at work if she is stitching again", you'd be absolutely right. "Feast or Famine" as they say when you are doing free-lance work.
Last time I showed you photos of Daisy. Now, I must give equal time to Mr Julius. He is a pretty rumbunctious cat and the first one shows him in true form. The other two, well, you can't blame a cat for wanting to chill out in the summer heat.
The photo above shows three of my favourite things - Mr Julius, cross stitch and books.
I love this last photo even though it's a bit fuzzy. Julius is tucked in under a chair in my room, in his little Buddha-cat pose. So sweet.
That's all for now. Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful week ahead!
