Progress on Buckeyes


Hopefully this piece will be done at the end of the week. I don't have that much more to go! Hooray! I love doing these and they are a lot of fun but that lower butterfly the right side is giving me fits. I finally found my mistake but just improvised rather than take so much out. This whole piece is a seriese of improvisions as I noticed too late I was suppose to do half stitches on the butterflies and I did whole out of habit. Next time read the instructions first!

How was everyone's fourth of July? Mine was quiet and uneventful. I had really hope my brother and sister in law would have offered to take me to Melissa and John's cottage but they didn't. Oh well..... I went to church in the morning and it was a nice service, very Patriotic music. Plus one of our missionaries was there. He didn't speak, he surprised us. He is getting remarried this Sat. I don't know if you remember a couple of years ago I posted a picture of my friend Ruth with her quilt. Members of Cross Stitchers for Charity stitched it for her and she received it just 3 days before she died. Anyway, John was her husband. Ruth's family is very excited for him and they are attending his wedding on other side of state. I'm sure it'll be mixed as they'll probably think of Ruth and John's wedding in our church 20 plus years ago. John and his new wife, Wendy will return to Spain after their marriage. She was a missionary elsewhere but decided to go with hi to Spain.

Well-until next time Happy Stitching!
