In Stitches

 That's it for April. That block has been a done deal for a while.

 May is not looking good for a finish this month. That's a lot of watering can to stitch.

 My skate project is coming along after I made peace with the fact that it's not going to be perfect. My fabric stitches aren't really perfect either but I guess I'm just used to looking at them.

Now it's time for the bead part of the stitching. I have never done this before either. This should be good.


  1. You are so brave to be working on something that small, I would not be able to see it at all.
    Have fun,

  2. Another finish...excellent! You just might finish the May one also because you are on a roll! The skates will be fun...come on and smile while doing it!

  3. Beading is the BEST part. I love doing the beading parts. It's looking WONDERFUL!

  4. Beads make me happy. They're going to make that little skate shine!

  5. Oh the skates. I just love the skates project.
    As for the watering time in time

  6. I' ve just discovered you through Meredith, I did counted cross stitch for years until my eyes began failing. I'm wanting to try it again though. On another's topic, our daughter loves in Maryland near Annapolis. It's a beautiful area.

  7. I cannot believe how fast April flew by!

  8. Cross-stitching is just so much fun. I'm enjoying watching your calendar project develop.
    Good luck with the beads. That's a step I haven't taken yet.

  9. The skates look great to me! Every time I see your calendar project, I think, 'Oh yeah, I need to get back to my cross stitch WIPs!" Haven't done it yet though. Love yours!
