As for stitching, I did not get much done at the Therapy session. I continue to stitch on the design model for The Sunflower Seed, but over the 4th holiday and over the weekend, I did take some breaks. Sometimes when I get tired of a piece, I end up doing some frogging and I do better if I go on to something else for a little bit. Then I am fresher when I go back to the main focus piece. Since I worked in the LNS on Saturday, I did get a little stitching done then too. Here is the progress on Hands to Work-Best of Blessing. (For some reason the picture looks a little fuzzy, might be something to do with the photographer). I now have a house completed. Also did some stitching on my Quaker Odds and Evens Squares. Not enough progress for a picture yet. Getting close to having the 3rd of 4 squares done. The design model piece is getting close to be done. Maybe in another week, I will have it done and ready to frame. I probably will be up on her web site later in August.
Making preparations to travel about 3 hours away from home to help a college friend in the needlework section of rural county fair. This will be about the 4th time I have done this. The people that are the head of the needlework section and the quilt section are getting older and it is harder for them to handle the job, but they still do not want to give it up. Sam and I do a lot of helping. Monday afternoon and early evening is the check in of items. Tuesday is judging and then we arrange them in display cabinets for the public to view. Usually she begs me to come and bring some things to enter. Right now I am planning to take 4-6 things. Last year I got Reserve Champion on Ewe & Eye & Friends- Primitive Santa. It really is a lot of fun. They seem to get fewer and fewer entries. I will be giving an update on the fair and hopefully have some pictures later next week.
Well, it is off to stitch. Oh, I almost forgot, thanks to everyone for reading my blog and the comments received.
Keep on stitching.
