Always so nice to see a new post from you, Cindy :) You've stitched such pretty things this month... I especially love the little fob designs. I should really look into buying a few of those charts, too.

Oh, my--your produce is exceptional. Do you give a lot of it away? And that purple Rose of Sharon is just lovely. I've never seen one like that. We have a regular old white one blooming in our front yard right now. But, it looks pretty with some black-eyed Susans planted in front of it :)

Yes, this summer is going crazy fast! I can't believe August is a third over already. I'm doing a lot of traveling this month so I don't even think I'll get a new post up until the end of the month. Enjoy your day, my friend--I will check out your video very soon. Always enjoy them, your pretty smile, and positive attitude :)

I really enjoyed seeing all of your new stitches Cindy. The PS one looks very labor intensive. The fobs are adorable and probably went quick compared to the others. Your produce is remarkable...you have a green thumb! Great photo of you. It looks like the perfect summer day. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

Love your finishes - so pretty. I liked seeing the ones on your black board pieces; reminded that I have some of those too. (Making plans.) I was fortunate to attend the Silver Needle July retreat with Cathy of Hands on Designs and Linda of Lizzie Kate - it was a fun three days. Your garden goodies look so yummy - the salad makes my mouth water!! Love the Rose of Sharon. I have some bushes that are past their prime and need to be removed. I am thinking I want to plant Rose of Sharon bushes - I remember my grandmother having them in this very yard where I live on the farm, such good memories. Enjoy the rest of your summer. I agree that it is going fast, but it is also very hot and humid here. I need to mow but am waiting until we have a day with a better breeze which makes it endurable if you wet your clothes down!! LOL Happy stitching and gardening.

Hi Cindy, finishing is not easy & it takes time. I give you lots of credit, your work
is amazing.

Oh my, Cindy, your Stoney Creek finish looks fantastic. I so love their designs.
Your garden seems to be so fertile. Wonderful produce, and so much. I think I would eat these mixed salads all summer long, every day.
