I have one finished piece to show you.

AVAS silks on 35 ct WDW Parchment
One thing I've learned with the older Sheepish Antiques designs - there are mistakes so expect them and double check the chart against the photo. After you accept that then it's not so bad. I did end up changing the colours around a bit to suit myself. I really like this one and I'm definitely hooked on her designs! So, naturally, the next project is...
Betsy! I'm stitching on 36 ct Straw but using the HDF silks conversion. While I have enjoyed stitching with HDF silks in the past, I regret getting this conversion. Others have warned me that sometimes the conversions don't work out very well. In this case, the colours of the border vine, leaves, stem should be dark, medium and light green. Well, they are blue-y grey. It didn't dawn on me until I had stitched quite a bit (remember, I blame the heat?) and then I pondered what to do. Since I did not have anything in my HDF stash close to those colours I decided just to leave it.
Overall, the colours are much softer than what shows on the chart photo. Oh well. It is a fun design to stitch. (Sorry for the bad photo by the way!)
Not much else to report. September is just around the corner - how insane is that? I leave you with a photo of my kitties while we still had our heat a couple of weeks ago. It was hilarous how they were trying to stick their heads out of the window to get some air!
Oh, to be able to just chill out completely like these cats!
Thank you for your visit! I really appreciate your stopping by and reading your comments just make my day! Enjoy your Sunday and the rest of ...August! Take care!
