Focus

This is the last day of my vacation, and yesterday was the first day of autumn (even if it is still in the 80s). Figure I'd find the perfect summer vacation sampler. This is by Cross Eyed Cricket. I've recently bought the CEC Halloween sampler, Sleepy Hollow, and will probably wait until spring to stitch that. I will be headed for Cape Cod sometime next month, but by the time I get there, the summer cottages will be boarded up, there will be a chilly breeze and the water will be gray, most likely.

This is the fabric for the sheers I've been working on; I suspect I will not finish them during this vacation. Lack of focus. Note that I did not embroider all the little aqua leaves; that would be masochistic. Maybe in my next life.

I did focus on the Neighborhood RR though. Most of this progress occurred during this week, when I was supposed to be sewing curtains. I find I get a lot done if I bump one project with another.

Oh Glenna, I love the house you are stitching, the yellow is so cheerful! I too am working on window treatments (just ideas so far) I bought a very handy book for sewing around the home and I'm hoping to buy some sale fabric this weekend! I hope you show a finished picture of yours, the fabric is very nice!

Oh wow, I absolutely ADORE that CEC design - the colours are just exquisite. I've never really looked at their designs before, but you've just opened my eyes! Crikey, I think it might just extend my wishlist even further, if that's possible! ;) You did a beautiful job of stitching it :D

Love the Cape Codish CEC chart. It's perfect for a Cape reminder. My son and family live in Hingham and live lots on the Cape. You'll have such a relaxing time, as you know. Wish I were going with you to stitch and read!
Hugs,
