I have only stitched a little bit since my Midweek Post, mainly because Hubby and I made a two day trip to Saratoga, NY. As I have stated before, Hubby is a big horse-racing fan. I thought I would get some stitching done in the car, but I got engrossed in Nora Roberts' Key of Knowledge and couldn't put it down.
Besides that I found the road to be too bumpy for accurate stitching. While we were in Saratoga, I did find the Gloversville Sewing Center nearby. This is a small quilt shop, but I did manage to find some items to purchase.
The beige fabric is for a future quilt. I just fell in love with the swirls on it. The Journey Bag pattern looks easy...I hope so. The fat quarters are to complement my Summer of Love piece in a tote.
I am almost done with my Summer of Love Challenge. I just need to fill in the yin yang symbol and add a few French knots. Maybe a flower between Peace and Love and near the heart.
I hope to finish it today.
Baker Beach is giving me fits. Something about the way I am currently stitching is making my right shoulder ache. I had worked on it for about an hour last Wednesday and it was aching slightly all day Thursday at Saratoga. I woke up in the hotel Friday morning with my shoulder absolutely screaming. Thankfully, an dose of Aleve calmed it down enough to be bearable and as the day wore on it felt much better. Yesterday, I sat down with Baker Beach again for only a little while and this morning that shoulder is twinging. I really want to finish this soon. This is where it is as of Saturday.
I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. Summer of Love is on the top of my to-do list today. Tomorrow I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.
Thanks for stopping by!
