Stitching Weekend

So much for the slip and slide; Luke and his friend managed to rip a hole in the water inlet Friday afternoon, the second time he used it. I haven’t looked into vinyl patches yet to see if it’s possible to repair. It was fun for the two days he got to use it though I guess…

I managed to stitch a LOT this weekend. It was really hot and Tom was watching the bike race so it was easy to sit and stitch while Luke played with legos, had a friend over, etc. We did go to my in-laws’ house Sunday afternoon to cool off in their pool for awhile. How I wish we had a/c.

I’ve been working primarily on Little House Needleworks’ “From Sea to Shining Sea”. I made a small change in the southwest panel; the color “tumbleweed” was called out for the window outlines and the clouds, but the floss that came with my pattern is exactly the same color as the fabric (which was the recommended fabric). I tried it for the first window and ripped it out because it wasn’t visible at all. I had lots of the white left from the mountain panel so I used that instead. This is coming along SO quickly now!

    Looks great! Happy stitching–too bad about the slip and slide. Know what you mean about AC–it has been a life saver lately. Take care. Love, mom

    That looks wonderful, Jill. I don’t know what I’d do without A/C. I can’t tolerate the heat at all. That stinks about the Slip and Slide. They make such crap these days. I remember the ones we had when we were young, and they lasted for years.
