Next sewing project

19 colors (reds, oranges, yellows, greens,  blues and purples - Roy G. Biv ) and 6 different sized circles (they are drawn in the squares) will hopefully turn into a quilt big enough for our bed. If not I'll have to get more fabric. This will be definitely a long term since it will require a lot of hand sewing.

New cross stitch

My finger is healing but still sore. I actually tried to knit yesterday but the way I knit the needle hits the cut. Could not have been in a better spot. I did however finish this

Minions for MJ. Still needs to be ironed and I have to figure out how to frame it.

There will be a delay in crafting

I am not going to show any gory details. Tonight while slicing bread for dinner (with a very sharp new bread knife) the knife slipped and my finger was in the way. Bloody mess that took its sweet time to stop bleeding. Of course it's right on the pad of my index finger. Ugh

And Three Down

A was the last to go to school. Here she is waiting for the bus. A bus that never came - 8th year in a row we had a problem with the bus going to Paumanok. Over a quarter of a billion dollar budget  and they can't get busing right. Pretty sad. Anyway


Yes she's getting tall. Her last year in elementary school. Thank goodness. I can not take this school anymore

The teeny tiny cross stitch.


There you are.  So tiny. ( penny for scale and what used to be a penny and is now a Bear Mountain souvenir)

Here's a regular 14 count with Bear Mountain penny


In both pictures you can slightly see the hoop marks. The same sized hoop was used for both. I believe it is a 6" hoop. 

I love how tiny it is but the thing is well stitching it made me feel my age.  My eyes are not what there were ;)
