Dang, it's hot out there!

I think summer is here, with a vengeance!!  It's supposed to be 100 degrees here today and that's before you account for humidity.  Yuck!

Last weekend was hot but Saturday morning, we brought this lovely home from where it's been stored.  I would really love to get it running again and be able to drive it.


This is where Blue Moroccan Lace is right now.  I spent 30 minutes last night trying to decide on the next color to add and put it away.  Lust came back out instead.

Blue Moroccan Lace

I've made some slow progress on Blue Moroccan Lace over the last week.  We've had a baseball tournament which has slowed me down!

This isn't the outside border but it still matched up!

Decisions...

Since Photobucket is being a pain and wants to charge a lot of money to be able to use their photo sharing ability with blogger, I need to look for a new photo hosting service.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Anyway,  I finally made it to the end of the row I was working on in Heritage Sampler.

At that point, I needed a change  of scenery so I pulled out Star Spangled Banner from Northern Expressions Needlework.  I finished the stripe I had been working on last time it was out and started the next white stripe.  I was having problems with stitch placement so I started the next red stripe.  At that point, I decided I'd had enough of all specialty stitches.

Yesterday, I'd also worked on finishing kitting up Chatelaine's Blue Moroccan Lace Mandala.

Here's what I've got.  My helper approved!

I hope to get a start on this tonight but there's baseball, so maybe.

One last bit...

Heritage Sampler is still out.  

Sunday, it was time to move the qsnaps.  I'm pretty sure what I'm adding to those blank rows, but have yet to work it all out and get it charted.


I'm ready to rotate, but I'm going to finish the two stitched rows, the vertical leaves and grapes and the column of alphabet, just like the other side, since that will meet my goal for this piece this year.

Heritage Sampler

I finally finished the first third or so of the second set of bands I'm working on.

Then I moved the snaps and finished all the loose threads before starting any new.  Here's my progress through last night.

Heritage Sampler progress

In between ball games and practice, I am making progress on Heritage Sampler.


Since this picture, I've finished the top band (at least what fit inside the current qsnap opening) and moved down the page.

Garden Verses to Heritage Sampler

I finally hit a wall with Garden Verses Friday night.  I just couldn't do any more.  So I finished the 10 stitches or so in the color I was working in and put her away.  I made more progress on her in the last two months than I have in the last 10 years so I'm happy.  I'm hoping the next time I pull her out, she'll get finished.

I had trouble picking my next project.  I pulled out several and even thought about a new start but Chatelaine's Heritage Sampler won.  I didn't make a huge amount of progress this weekend since we had a baseball tournament but overall, I don't think I did too bad.
My kiddo is the runner in this picture.
