A Monday Update for the Day Before Summer

I can't believe it's just now about to be summer, according to the calendar - it's been so hot for so long! But we have gotten some fantastic thunderstorms this past week, and despite the leaves and branches all over the place, we've gotten some much-needed rain. It's actually been somewhat decent at night, temp-wise. My last lilies of the season are happy :)

Well, I tried my best, but I did NOT quite get Purrfect Summer Day finished - but I should on Monday night; I only lack finishing the outermost green border, and a couple of miles of backstitch just in the border - thankfully I've been doing it as I go along, I would lose my mind if I'd saved it all for the end!

On Tuesday, I was finally able to go to a Stitch In, and worked on the usual, Tanglewood. I got the branch I had started... the last time I worked on it, finished outlining, and started to fill it in. It's good to be on the upper half of the tree - the branches are getting shorter :)

And because I am a serial starter, I dug out a little Lizzie Kate that Shawn gifted me, Hocus Pocus, and went through the stash and kitted it up - it's partly WDW and partly Carrie's, done on 30ct WDW Guacamole that I got Tuesday night. I put in a few stitches on Thursday night, and then worked on it during a conference call on Friday - I think I can get it done over lunch this week, if I get time to actually break longer then to eat.

So, this week, finish Purrfect, hopefully finish Hocus, and then - back to Knotgarden? Mary Wigham? One of those that are close to done - gotta get stuff DONE! I have so many things that want to be started (Hocus included) :) Need more time, less work - but then don't we all? LOL Happy stitching this week to everyone.

Looking good Karen. That watermelon looks yummy! Can't wait to see your progress on Hocus. Tanglewood looks good. Can't wait to see what you pull out next! It's been hot and stormy here too. No hail though, thankfully!!
