Just a quick post!



Just a quick drive by posting here. I keep meaning to post and time just gets away from me. This The Mercantile by LHN which I have been working on. I am doing it on 30 count Irish Creme linen by R and R with Crescent and GAST colors. I have been enjoying it! I also have a new loose feather's start Spring Fling which is simply gorgeous and when I get a little more on that I will show it to you. Bluebird's Message is essentially finished I just need to add a few more eyelets to it.

The summer is flying by and the kids and I are working on some home improvements such as painting and purging. I am getting new living room furniture and I have all these plans for rearranging. Let's pray they come to fruition. It's also time to start the dreaded back to school shopping. I am taking each child separately because when they are all together I fear for my peace of mind! Have a blessed weekend and as always thanks for stopping by!

The summer is indeed flying by. I feel like I have just begun to get the 'hang' of it the past day or so, and it's already half gone.

Your WIP looks great!! :D

You've reminded me that I should take some time to get busy on my youngest daughter's bedroom before the school run around begins! Congrats on putting a fresh face on your home - it always feels great.

Guess I started a bit of school shopping the other day when I found a fabuloso sale at Van Heusen - new shirts for everyone!!

The Mercantile is beautiful! I love the designs of the flowers. LHN and CCN designs are always so fun to stitch.

Have fun painting and redecorating! I love doing stuff like that. As for the back to school shopping - I'm glad we don't have to do that anymore!

Terry said...

Beautiful stitching. Hope that the redecorating works just the way you want it. Have fun shopping with the kids. I'm still lucky enough that my DH can shop for them as they don't really care what they are wearing but I know that will soon change. lol Good luck!

Vonna said...

Oh girl...it's looking so good! I love this design :)
Back to school shopping...one kid down this weekend for me! YEA!!!
Hugs my dear...have a great week!

I adore LHN and your piece is coming out beautifully. I just started Rose Hill Plantation - for my daughter who will be getting married in Dec - will be putting their last name before Hill Plantation (words)

Sally said...

It's looking lovely Sharon.

Enjoy your back to school shopping lol! I dread it more and more each year but this year will be the last one Abi needs uniform as she'll be in her final year. If she goes on to 6th form she won't need uniform.
