August and the Olympics

Well here we are and it is already August. Work is just crazy and it is cutting into my crafting time. I wish I had more time but when you are self-employed you are just happy that you are busy. I am watching the opening games of the Olympics. I pray that all of the athletes and there coaches and support staff will all stay safe and enjoy this special event. The ceremony was simple and yet I thought they did a very nice job. I will be watching the swimming events with an added interest. A dear friends grandson will be competing on the USA team.

I have updates on just about everything I am working on. I am very close to another page finish on my HAED Christmas Cottage. I am working hard on finishing both Beauty and the Beast and also Minerva. I have not worked on Joy for a month. I have lost focus on that one but I will get back on track once I finish the other 2.



 I also have 3 new starts. On Facebook I saw the Death by Cross Stitch Sampler and I fell in love with it. I bought the pattern and kitted it up. I started it July 26th. I really love this pattern and I do not know why. I just talks to me and I do not normally like samplers. The 2nd new start was also inspired by Facebook. One of the groups I am part of is having a Halloween SAL. All you have to do is pick a Halloween themed piece. Start August 1st and stitch until finished or until Oct 31st.And my final new start is a birthday card for my sister. She made me the gorgeous card I showed you in a previous post. She loves daisies so I am making her a card with those flowers. Have to do it quick as her birthday is on the 20th of this month.








Finally I have a finish but I am not going to show it to you YET. I want to get the embellishments added on first. Right now I have to find 2 pieces that I am going to add and then I can show it off. So look back possibly next week and I will have it ready to share.
