Prairie Schooler - Saturday Stitch Along - Progress on August

Been a long while it seems since I've posted.  More a matter of having time at night to be coherent in a post after a long day at work and then dropping over to the hospital to see Mom.  Good news on that front, the hyperbaric treatments are working and she is improved enough to have been released from the hospital (3 weeks, poor dear) and back into her orthopedic rehab facility.  Next stop - HOME!  She can't wait, she's ready to click her heels and get out of the medical loop!  It's been 11 months, eleven LONG months. 

On the stitching front, I have been working on my Prairie Schooler Summer and Winter leaflet with emphasis on August.  This is a cute one, lots of little critter motifs to stitch and plenty of color changes to keep your interest piqued!

This is part of my Saturday Prairie School Stitch Along that I participate in with Linda and Debbie.  We're all on different projects but they are all Prairie Schoolers and it's inspiring to see what we get up to!  I hope to have this finished up soon and I'm going to start going through the various completed stitching projects for this and see what I can totally finish (you know, put in a frame, make a pillow, a doorhanger, etc.).  Was inspired by finishing July up totally and actually displaying it!

What are you working on?  Let me know in the comments and I'll be by to check out your blog!


  1. Hi Rosemary,
    thank you so much for stopping over at my blog and leaving such a sweet comment on my patriotic card I entered at Opus Gluei! You know, you are the only one who has commented on my little story that accompanied the card! Thank you for that! I love all of your stitching it is beautiful work! Ummm, I have some cross-stitch supplies that I no longer have time to use, if you email me your address I'll post them on over to you...this way I will know they'll be going to a good home.
    Let me know...
    Hugs and great to meet you,
    Beth P
    P.S. I'm a cyberspace friend of Electra, yes, your very own one and only! (smile)

  2. I used to cross-stitch all the time years ago. It's so fun. Beautiful creations on your site. Thanks for visiting me and leaving me a sweet comment. I do hope you can participate in some of my challenges on either site. You can submit cross stitch projects if you want. I'm easy! As long as it fits our theme. :)
