Is there a certain finish that you absolutely, positively hate doing? I do and it's needlerolls. That's what this pattern from Shepherd's Bush was suppose to be finished in to but I changed it to a floss pocket. This is fully linen with black silk with a silk ribbon tie at the top to close it. It's about 4 x 5 inches so it's a nice size....maybe for your scissors and doo dads too. Everything else about the pattern is as SB intended it to look....just not the finishing. This will be in my store if anyone is interested.
It's been pretty quiet around here. Vallie is even feeling the heat and just doesn't want to play catch outside like she usually does. I do believe today got to 98 degrees and who knows where the heat index ended up. Is everyone this summer having these same kind of heat waves? I have a dear friend in Lake Jackson, Texas and she hasn't had rain of any consequence since January. Can you imagine going 5 months without rain? No wonder the state of Texas is burning down. My heart goes out to those people who are losing their houses and businesses from the fires and also the flooding in the central part of the country. It just hasn't been a very good summer all around and I believe everyone will be glad when it's over.
Now I have to decide what to stitch next. I have the quakers from Jardin Prive that I need to do so I'm thinking of starting the one with the Eiffel Tower. I just have to decide what colors. Since it is a french design, I'm thinking of using the colors of their flag....blue, white and red. What do you think? Too corny??? I'll wait and see if I get any opinions on that before I start it. Off to work on the crocheted baby blanket.
Blessings as always,
