I'm Stitching Cool Thoughts

Here it is the first day of summer and I'm stitching fall designs. Maybe it's because of the heat down here this past week, but you'd think I'd be use to it by now. I think I'll go with that it has to be fall somewhere in this world and they are celebrating the changing leaves and enjoying that nice crisp air that everyone associates with fall. Whatever the reason, this La D Da design was a hoot to stitch. I stitched it on the recommended fabric "havana" with an HDF silk called Begrimed. I couldn't believe when I found all these coordinating fabrics right in my own sewing room and really didn't have to buy any. I love it when a plan comes together!!! LOL
As always, Barbara

What a gorgeous pillow, congratulations. Isn't it nice when the exact thing you need just turns up in your stash?
Happy stitching.

A great finish! You did a wonderful job with the stitching and finishing. If "cool" stitching leads to cooler weather, please let me know! SC is just too hot right

I'm with Karen - if it makes the temps cooler I'm all for it! Beautiful fabric choices and your finishing is unsurpassed (as always)
Hope it works for you on cooling down the temps!
