June WIPocalypse

 I was quite productive with my cross-stitching this past month.
I have made great progress on "Over the river and through the woods".
I have decided that I really want to get this finished so all my stitching is currently concentrated on doing that.


Prior to making that decision though, I got a lot of stitching done on Large Cross-stitch #1. Here is my last posting....
and this is where I am now.

I also worked on my stamped cross-stitch. I am working on stitching up the left hand side first. I needed to see some color variety and some definite features of the picture. Once again, here is my last posting.....


and this is where I am now.

Measi's question this month is about stitching retreats and festivals. I have never attended any of these. I am sort of a lone stitcher. Pop on over to her site to check out what others are stitching.
One last picture of the coral bells currently blooming in my garden.


Thanks for stopping by!

Loving the look of 'over the river'. It's shaping up to be a really pretty piece. ~Summer

Such lovely stitching Cathie, my, you are a busy girl aren't you and making nice steady progress. Your coral bells are very pretty and they do have lovely foliage too. I haven't attended retreats either so, so I suppose, like you, I could be called a lone crafter too; nothing wrong with that - we all have our ways and what's good for one may not be good for another. Keep enjoying, I'll look forward to watching your stitching progress! Joy x

I love that "Over the river" piece. That poem/song is such a sentimental favorite of mine. Also, I am so impressed that you're doing stamped cross-stitch. I tried once and just gave it up as too hard!

Everything looks great ... including the coral bells. One of my favs.

Over the River is so pretty! No wonder you want to stitch on it until it's finished! Your stamped cross-stitch looks really nice, too! I found your blog from the WIPocalypse check-in page.
