Happy June! Can you believe it? May was so lovely I hated to see it end. June is nice too, but I find it's a lot like December in that it just screeches by as we wind down the school year and get ready for summer vacation.
I have a few quick things to share that I completed in May. First up are two letters from Brooke's Books Stitcher's Alphabet. I stitched up the letters D and F. D took some patience as there were many small patches of colour. I just love the end result though: isn't her little face so sweet?
F was much quicker; it took about four hours and was super easy-going.
I am so far leaving any added embellishments off. There are a few buttons to put on, and beads, but I'm not sure about the beads just yet. I will decide at the end.
Here is what it looks like so far:
I also managed to complete another long suffering work in progress. It has been years since I started these quilted hot pads. Not quite sure what I was waiting for, but I am happy to have them out of the "Inbox"!
I am working on a few crochet projects: one is a blanket with left over Lake Erie throw yarn. We have been sucked into the black hole of watching "Game of Thrones" on DVD so I try to get at least one square per episode completed. That makes me feel a bit better about watching for hours on end anyway!
Mr Crafty World and I got away for a few days to celebrate our twentieth wedding anniversary a few weeks ago. We went to beautiful Niagara On The Lake and spent two days in a lovely little boutique hotel. I would like to be able to show you lots of pictures of this charming place, but do you know I only took this one picture the whole time and didn't work on any of the crafts I took with me?!
This yellow magnolia was just stunning and now I use this picture as my screen saver to remind me of the lovely trip.
Thanks for visiting! Enjoy June!
