As you may have read, June has been vexing me....a lot.
Now I may rejoice - it's done! It's really a cute design, and since it's done, I'm not NEARLY as frustrated.
In the spirit of this, I started July, I really would like to get one done in time to finish it completely and use it. Is that too much to ask? (apparently) I think you also have a pretty good idea of the July theme too...
Interesting little story to pass along, I was sitting in the surgical waiting area as Mom had another procedure and was stitching on the June piece when a Vietnamese man struck up a conversation. His mother used to cross stitch and he operates a mechanical embroidery machine. He went out and brought in samples of the logos he does, they were really well done and we had such a nice conversation. I learned about the intricacies of machine embroidery and he was interested in learning how different fabrics yield different results - not unlike is own work. The time passed so pleasantly and quickly. I love how many conversations can be started with people expressing an interest in a stitching project.
