We have all recovered from last week and getting Kira and her class ready for the end of school. Summer vacation has officially arrived for us. While I’m excited for the time off, it also means I’m going to be “ON” for the entire summer. It’s just my girl and me, and I’ve got lots of stuff planned for us. You’ll be seeing the fruit of our labor quite soon. In the mean time, my own summer fun has begun.
The Wild Olive Summer Stitch Club 2013 has kicked off and oh how excited I am. Here are a few of my hexagons!!! I loved this fabric line, then I didn’t, now I do again!!! Choosing the fabric is really the hardest part for me.
And here’s the club’s first embroidery pattern! I did it last night while watching Game Of Thrones (that’s a topic for another post, actually not for this blog at all).
I decided not to use a hoop and was surprised how easy it still was to stitch! Didn’t want to deal with overly wrinkling it. I’ve also decided to use a natural color linen instead of white. It just looks like a better fit with this fabric line. Opinions welcome…
I’m totally smitten with this project!!! And the pattern that arrived this morning is even cuter than this one. I’ll get to work on that one tomorrow night.
Today is my 7th wedding anniversary and tonight it’s all about me and my hubby!!! Stitching and hexis can wait!!!
