My Sunday Stitchy Update

Evening Everyone!

I hope you all have had an amazing week. We had a pretty good week and now we are on a long holiday weekend due to Independence Day here in America. Hopefully we will be able to see some fireworks from our home as the Air Force base is close to us and I heard they have a great display. We can't really leave the dogs home alone because one of them doesn't do well with the loud noise and has to be medicated.

I got in some stitching this week. It didn't seem like much but looking at the progress I am pleased!

First up is...
Dreamcatchers
Designer - Joan Elliott
Progress as of 06/30/16

I finished the words and started the feathers. I just love how the feathers look stitched up! I have a few more feathers to do before the piece is finished and I will try to squeeze them in this month when I am suffering from blue burnout because of...

Dinosaurs!
Design by Stephen Michael Gardner
Progress as of 07/03/16

This is the piece that I am stitching for Justine's Just One July. It has TONS of blues in it but it is a fabulous piece! I only got in about 200 (just a guess) stitches so far but on the first day I was "reorganizing" my stash for this one; refilling and bobbinating the floss I need. I am all set up now so it should be smooth sailing for the rest of the month. 

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

Great progress on both your WIPs. And it's so good to have at least two to choose from when boredom takes over :)
