July 16

Been doing a lot of different things instead of working on just one project. Have been working on a RR for The Needle Nook - almost have my part finished. Have been working on The Big Zipper - have repaired my mistakes and gotten a bit farther. A Mill Hill Button and Bead kit is in progress too - have the actual stitching done and am now working on the beads. Also have been doing a little on The Mighty Samurai - while working at my home care patient (he is asleep at the time) do a little each night I am there - it really helps to get projects done.

Bent Creek - The Big Zipper

I have started Bent Creek - The Big Zipper. I finally had the outside edge that is like a ribbon done and started just the straight border. I found out I had done something wrong and now have to frog out a quarter of the border. I am so frustrated I had to put it up for a while. This is how it looked before I put the rest of the border in that was wrong.

Duck Duck Goose

This is Duck Duck Goose by Mill Hills Buttons and Beads. I saw this at the Cross Stitch Show in Rockhome Gardens. We have an inside joke about being a duck and I had to have it. This is my first piece on perforated paper. I liked doing it so well that my sister had some others she hadn't done and I stole them from her.
