Welcome to Cranberry Samplings

Friday, July 29, 2011

Another week has gone by. Where does the time go? It's just flying along. I finished Mighty Oak Sampler and just love it! It was so much fun to do. I did frog all the bottoms of the acorns because they were done in a limey green that I just didn't like. I went for the basic beige. Like them much better.


Little squirrel over one.


Love the kitty! So cute.


Had August stretched and poped it into the frame that I am using for all the months.



A close up of the lazt daisys. One is better that the other.



Progress on the Wednesday SAL. Summer is started. Not a lot to show.



Finished September by DT. Love this one. The leaves are beautiful and the panels on the door are cushioned stitched, very fun to do. I have started Boris by PSS but really haven't done enough to show.

We have had a weather reprieve this past week. It has been pleasant with lower humidity. A nice change. Today is gray and we are going to have thunder storms. We do need the rain.
Until next time... Happy Stitching! Deborah

I sure wish we would get some rain. We were supposed to, but it didn't come through. Still hot and muggy here, even at one thirty am. Eighty degrees, ick!! I'm sooooooo ready for fall. All your stitching looks great. I think I wouldn't like the acorns green either. And the kitty is CUTE!! Love your September too. Great job all around!!
