My Sunday Stitchy Update 06/23/19

Hi Everybody!

I hope that the warmer weather has FINALLY made it to your neighborhood! We are having lots of days in the upper 90s and lower 100s here while we wait for monsoon season to start! I love the rain when it comes but it doesn't really last long; it starts and ends quickly but it comes down in bucketfuls! There really is not a sewer system here, instead they depend on "washes" and it takes quite a while for the rain water to reach it so the streets get kinda flooded which makes it real fun for driving!

This week I started and finished the next mini bunny in the series.

Mini Bunnies
Monthly Series, June
Designer - Eileen Gurak
Mini Finish 06/21/19

This one makes me halfway finished with the series and here they are all together.


Then I had some time to look through "THE BOX" where I found this blank piece of fabric. I am pretty sure it was screaming at me that it feels neglected and unloved since I have yet to do anything with it so I pulled it out for next week.


I hope that it has lots of Xs on it by next Sunday!!

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

My Sunday Stitchy Update 06/02/19

Did you miss me?  LOL I didn't get much stitching in on my main piece last week so there was no post but I forgot I had the piece requested by my daughter.  It was a very simple saying to chart and stitch up and it made her very happy!

Sorry if the F* word offends you...

Dainty
Designer - Faithfully Stitching Designs
First Stitch 05/19/19
Finished 05/20/19

She has always said that she is not the girly girl type, so this piece is perfect for her!

Then I took out a piece I haven't stitched for a while.  I saw that Linda had stitched a bit on her's when I visited her blog and it has been on my mind ever since and since my stitching "schedule" is all messed up I figured, why not! LOL


Pretty Little Chicago
Designer - Satsuma Street
Progress as of 06/02/19

This time around I put the finishing touches on the Picasso but I only finished working one building. 

First up is the Picasso

Chicago's Picasso is an beautiful piece of artwork situated in downtown Chicago.  Picasso gifted this sculpture to Chicago in 1967. The sculpture has also and appeared in a few films. It made it's film debut in the 1980 iconic and hilarious film The Blues Brothers. It next co-starred with Matthew Broderick in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off and in the 1988 movie Switching Channels before appearing in The Fugitive in 1993. 

Next up we have Crain Communications Buildingformally known as The Smurfit–Stone Building. I don't really know much about this building other than it has been named for whatever corporation is the "owner" of the building. Despite all the official names this building has it is fondly known as The Diamond Building because of the shape at the top. 
Useless and Totally Random Fact: I used to work in this building. I worked on the 15th floor and I used to love looking out the windows because you can see miles of Chicago. It overlooks Grant Park where there are many events and festivals throughout the summer. This was the best building to work in during the coldest days of the winter because when you get off the train coming in from the South you do not even have to go outside to get to the office; simply just walk thru the connected tunnel system they have under the streets of Chicago called The Pedway.
