Well, I'm definitely starting to pine for some x's around here, but I still haven't settled on a project to start -- or to continue. So it's lots of clams instead. Doesn't feel like a lot though. Hand applique always takes longer than you would wish. Kathie last week asked for a whole picture of the quilt so far. So I did my best to do that this week. Sorry -- I'm not the best photographer! Here is the quilt as is.
I actually like this next picture better -- the quilt is just the right size for my little guys.
I decided that since there wasn't any x-stitching going on at present here, that I would show a greatest hits of sorts of my past projects. For some reason I'd never taken any pictures of the few hornbooks that I've stitched. So I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do just that.
Pitifully few, as you see. I have others waiting to be stitched but I just haven't gotten around to them. The one on the top left is the Folkart Hornbook from Hillside Samplings. It was a limited edition piece from 2005. The one on the top right is the Quaker Hornbook from With My Needle. It is available if ordered as a group of 10 or more. And finally, the one on the bottom is the Sampler Hornbook by the Prairie Sampler. I love hornbooks. I hope do to more someday.
In other news -- well, not much is going on. It's definitely summer, with summer activities and summer heat and humidity. I'm starting to debate more and more with myself about what stitching project I want to pick up, so we'll see what happens.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. Your comments mean the world to me -- it's so wonderful to get to know you all! Have a great week!
