Christmas in July

 Lizzie Kate Summer Smalls
Bees and berries added.
I used random pieces of linen
that were given to me.  I do
not know the size or color.
I added mill hill beads to the
berries and changed the color.
On the Bees i changed the color
of the bees to yellow instead
of gold.

 His Gift by My Big Toe Designs
JCS ornament issue 2012, Page 80
Done on 28CT Picture this Plus
PTP is having christmas in 
July sale today, 25 percent off
all linen.  ONE DAY ONLY.
The silk threads in this piece
gorgeous.  added crystals in
the cross.  Sparkle and shine.
 This was a Freebie I received in 
the mail from a cross stitch order
This will be for my daugher for
christmas.  She has been to Paris
a couple of times.  This was
also done on Alchemy by PTP
 This pattern is from
Cross stitch mini Motifs Nature
by Susan Bates Book
Page 59.  I put together this 
design and made the cushion 
for a stitching sister. I
purchased a needlecase to
match.  She loves these tiny
treasures.  The cording
i made to match the bee

 This was a thrift store find.
One Dollar( 1.00)
I just washed it and will figure
out how to finish it.  How
amazing is that.
 I feed my birds Black sunflower oil
seeds.  Look what grew under the
two bird feeders.  How amazing is
this.  I love Sunflowers and just
a gorgeous gift from the birds
thanking me for feeding them
all year.  God is good.

This is one day from the garden
The eggplant is the best i have ever
eaten in my life.  My sister gets
a bag or two a week of produce from
me.  Ahhh, yes.  Life is good.

I cannot believe we are heading into
August in a couple of days.  I hope
everyone is having an amazing summer.
Stop and take time to look at the beauty
around you.  It might be hot, but
all kinds of flowers, birds, gardens
and much more to notice.

Happy stitching everyone.
