June

I finished June by PS. This could be my fav of all the months so far. I think I say that after everyone. Love the colors and all the little motifs. Click on any of the pictures for a better view. Below is the full design.
I will have this stretched for my pop it in and out frame. It's done on 32 ct lambswool jobelan with DMC floss.

Just a picture of Sammi decked out in her Irish collar that says Kiss Me I am Irish. She is a love.

It's been a very busy week. I had expected to post before this. I made 5 loafs of Irish Soda Bread . I shared some with my Wednesday stitching group. Had a St.Patrick's Day dinner for family and friends. They all got to bring bread home with them. I had a great dessert but forgot to take pictures. I got the beautiful piece of pottery in Ireland about 10 years ago. Friday was a beautiful day and I spent it outside raking some the gardens. I did all of them in the front yard. You wouldn't be able to tell today because it SNOWED. It didn't cover the streets but my yard is still snowy white. I am so tired of the cold and snow. That's the reason why I have a new header of daffodils. Very Spring like. They are one of my favorite flowers and the season is short. These came from England and are really beautiful. Had a large bouquet on the table for St. Patrick's dinner. Thanks for all the great comments and I have almost 400 followers. I am going to have to come up with something for another giveaway. Stay tuned. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah

I agree about winter! I have just started the Prairie Schooler "June." The one you did looks lovely and it makes me think I choose a good one.

Cole said...

Farm Girl said...

Beautiful Deborah - I love the Prairie Schooler finish, its lovely!

Heidi said...

Oh my...I love this one too! I am a sucker for anything with a house on it anyway. Yikes...resist temptation Heidi...lol. You are still the world's fastest stitcher and loved the finished pillow in your last post too.

*sigh* Can I come over for a piece of that Irish soda bread? I love it and have not made it in ages. I will bring along some tea or Dutch coffee if you prefer. :-)

Hugs from Holland ~

Gorgeous PS finish Deborah. I know how you feel about the winter weather - fortunately here things are brightening up, and getting warmer too!
Love the daffs.

Margaret said...

Beautiful PS finish! Wow, you baked a lot of soda bread! Sammi is so cute! I think we're all sick of the snow. More possible tomorrow and the next day? I hope not!!

CalamityJr said...

The June stitching IS lovely, but not as much as sweet Sammi! lol

Jackie said...

Congrats on your finish! Sammi is cute - not sure if she looks thrilled to be decked out for St. Patricks Day.

Carol said...

I hadn't really paid much attention to "June" until I looked closely at your finish, Deborah. It really IS lovely--another item for my shopping cart :)

Love the photo of Sammi--she must be wonderful company...

Love it! The rabbits are so cute and really look like they are nosing around to investigate each other. :)

Oh, that soda bread looks delicious--plenty of raisins!

Beautiful PS finish; I love the house! The soda bread looks great and Sammi is a doll. I am so sick of the snow - we're supposed to get ice and then snow tonight. Tomorrow's commute should be fun!

staci said...

Wonderful finish! Love your bowl from Ireland...and what an appropriate way to serve Irish Soda Bread!

Mary said...

Love the finish! Great colors!

Your bread looks yummy. I've never made it but after seeing it made on the cooking channel by Ina, it looks easy.

Hope the snow melts soon. Maybe that will be the last of it this year.

Jan said...

By the calendar, it is officially Spring and we have had some really 'balmy' days this week, but by Friday back to normal temps in the 40's. I know that winter has been wearisome this year, but if Spring comes too soon, then the sultry heat of summer will not be welcome, at least to me!:)

I love your finishes and pup and that irish soda bread looks ever so yummy! I am sure it was enjoyed by many!

Janice Boucher said...

Hi Deb... your June turned out just lovely.
And Sammi....she is on the cutting age of fashion!

Melanie said...

Great finish!!!!! It is lovely. :)

Myra said...

Your PS finish is so pretty but not nearly as pretty as Sammi in her finery. ;o)

DonnaTN said...

I love the PS piece, especially the pretty spring time colors. Your soda bread looks yummy. I don't put raisins in my version, but tastes good and the leftovers make great toast.

Bekca said...

Beautiful finish, and I hope you had a lovely time celebrating St Patrick's Day. I love daffodils! We've got loads in bloom in our gardens, front and back. For me, they are the best sign of spring :)

Beth said...

Your June piece is really beautiful - great job. I don't remember eating Soda Bread when we were in Ireland in 2007, probably just a senior memory loss kind of thing - LOL!

Blu said...

Congrats! June looks great!

Lynn said...

Gorgeous work on June! I do love Prairie Schoolers!
I don't think I've ever tasted Irish soda bread but it sure looks yummy.

Lois said...

What a great finish! What a cute pics of Sammi and that soda bread looks delicious!

Suzanne said...

Lovely finish on June, I agree the colours are great and I think it is the best of all the months.

Robin said...

Your June finish is so pretty and makes me long for spring and warmer weather even more (if that is possible). Sammi is daring in the St. Patty's tie. Sounds like you had quite the celebration for St. Patrick's Day!

Congratulations on your lovlely finish.

Pumpkin said...

Congrats on your latest finish! How many PS months do you have done now?

Sammi looks SO adorable :o)
