Wow, it's been a long week! We've been in the middle of a heat wave and drought. No outdoor watering......all my beautiful gardens are sad, sad, sad.
Here is the progress on Mr. Lincoln. I'm very happy with him. I have at least another round to go, if not two, we'll see what the quilt wants to do.Here is a needle punch that I worked on while my husband recovered from knee surgery last Wednesday. We watched all 3 of the Lord of Rings movies - good for needle punching. Most of the areas were done with 2 strands of floss in different colors. It makes for a nice soft look, I think.
this is the back -
By the way, I do like the new Russian needle punchs' that I purchased. They are easier to thread and seem to have a more consistent loop - or maybe that's me.
I'm not sure what this will end up being, but I suspect I'll affix it onto a basket.
Thank you Michelle! I received this lovely prize from a recent giveaway on her blog. It's a cute Santa pillow case kit - with everything needed, including a jingle bell! The card is lovely too - thanks again. Visit her blog to see what's she's up to.
Poor coco. Adding to the otherwise difficult week is that coco went to the vet and found out that her internal stitches needed to be redone :(
We are now in week 3 trying to keep a 6 mos. lab quiet - huh? In the meantime, I hurt my back lifting her in and out of the car - doh!
When it rains, it pours.
Not a happy girl.
Luckily I have fun sewing projects to work on and I'm going to Lancaster on Friday for a fun girlfriend day and fabric shopping.
Happy Wednesday and for our French friends - Happy July 14th, or Bastille Day.
