Part Two - Stitchy

Good Morning All,

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who left a comment. I am touched and excited to meet my new friends.  I was asked if the fabric was linen or even weave and it was even weave. I am about to tackle linen for the first time with the Sue Hillis design. Wish me luck.

Now, onto part two of yesterday's post.  I have pics of some of my projects for this month.  First, an update on Summer House.  Its a Brookes Books freebie that was for a competition last year (a bit late).
I am hoping to have the house and front steps finished this week.  I didn't get any stitching done last night.  My head really hurts and I just can't seem to focus.  I think the Earth is attacking me again.  I plan on retaliating with some Zyrtec.  If so, stitching, here I come.

The next pic is of a Sue Hillis design.  Its my plan to have the pirate picture as part of my blog header.  Its been a plan for some time now, so I hope I actually get it done this month.  You can't really tell from the picture, but the colors are really pretty and jewel toned.  I am not using the fabric listed in the pattern, but its pretty close. 

The next pic is of the Love Quilt square I signed up for.  Its due in August for Brody.  My first snake stitch.  Its filled with really pretty greens and I love the fact that I normally wouldn't stitch this type of design.  I plan on alternating the Summer House and Sue Hillis design every other week.  I fill fit in the LQ stitch every other day until its done.  I have two more project I am working on this month, but I forgot to take the pics.  I will have them up tomorrow along with my TUSAL pic.  I am really bad about those.  I do not plan on winning anything, because I missed Jan., Feb., and March, but I like the jar (he he he).

I hope you'll like stitching on linen too. :) I prefer the evenweaves as it gives my X's a more consistent look... but I'm not picky.

Hope your head is feeling better?
