There wasn’t a lot of stitching happening here this week, but I did manage to finish my monthly cross stitching for Gifted Gorgeousness. I’m so excited to have finished 8 of the 12 stitcheries now. And I’m off to a very good start on Number 9. This is all being done on one large piece, so I’m not ironing it until I’m finished. Pretend you don’t see the wrinkles.
You can click on the link if you’d like to see the linky list on Jo’s blog and see what other GG’ers are up to this month.
Because I spent no time in the sewing room this week, I still haven’t started on this month’s RSC15 color. You can pop over to Angela’s blog to see what everyone else is up to. I did manage to baste a bunch of red hexies for a little project. I’m working on sewing them together, and might have something to show you when I post next.
Sydney’s health continues to improve, and she is turning into a little firecracker. She loves to rip and tear through the house now that she’s feeling better. Here she is at rest, watching birds or squirrels through the window.
And Zippy is jealous that she didn’t get her picture on the blog last time.
They’re still not BFF’s, but we’re continuing to make progress there, too.
DH and I went for a little drive the other day, and I took some of my quilts for a photo shoot.
We had another fun little outing today – the Clustered Spires High Wheel Bike Race.
There was a children’s race.
A penny farthing stack – a self supporting row of bikes. I think there were 28 bikes present.
And then the main event.
So much fun to watch! We didn’t stay for the end because it was just too hot out. The winner was determined by who rode the most laps in an hour. I got the impression that most of the riders were just there for the fun of riding, not the competition.
I hope to spend more time in the sewing room in the upcoming week.
Happy Stitching . . . . Sunny
