I want to thank every one of you for visiting my blog and for the warm welcomes, and gracious comments on my pieces! Also thank you again to Daffycat for the shout out on her blog! I will be sure to take a minute to visit all of the blogs of those who left comments & became followers!
Today I wanted to share another of my more recent finishes. It is the July sampler from Prairie Schooler's "July" (Book No. 154). I started this piece at the beginning of May last year, but didn't actually get it finished until the end of December. I am embarrassed to admit that the piece sat untouched for several months, and the only thing that was left to stitch was the roof, grass & boarder under the stars.

This is also the next piece I want to get framed. I was thinking of having it matted with a matching red & blue mats and then an antiqued white frame. I picked up this chart because I love patriotic themed stuff and also living on Lake Michigan, it reminded me of the wonderful summer time on the lake here in Michigan. Speaking of which, it was an absolutely amazing day! For a couple hrs in the afternoon you could have totally gotten away with jeans & a t-shirt, I'm so ready for spring! lol Since it was so nice I pulled my car out of the garage, uncovered her (yes, my car is a her, her name is Baby lol) and detailed cleaned the wheels, rims and around the underbody. Now she is nice & super clean for when its time to take her out for the season! :-)
Thanks again for stopping by! Nick
