Lizzie Kate time on Slow Stitching Sunday...

It has been a very good week for cross stitching... I attribute this to the fact that except for my PBS British shows - Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge - there hasn't been a thing on TV to watch.  I listened to some baseball this week... the way my beloved Cincinnati Reds are playing it is easier to just listen than to watch. And here are the fruits of my labor...



This is the May installment on the new Yearbook series from Lizzie Kate ... there is a cute little shovel charm to attach  too!  This finished about 2.5 X 4.25" on 32 count ...the linen has is a peachy color but I couldn't get it to show in the picture.   The chart is a two -fer ...



May and June come together. I'll be starting June later this week I think.

And I made a lot of progress on my  Lizzie Kate Summer Alphabet...



The little blocks don't look that wonky in real life... I think I skewed them a bit when I ironed this piece for its picture. I really enjoy doing the frames and the letters. What slows me down are the little pictorial blocks. They are cute but I don't like stitching them as much as the letters.

My favorite detail so far is the little bee on the letter C...


I gave it a little stinger too!

Well it has been a very productive weekend in the sewing department too... check back tomorrow... I have new blocks on my design wall and I got the 81 blocks of my Hi Again top for my son and daughter-in-law sewn together... yeah!  Now to get the borders on and get it off to Terry to quilt.

So the weekend is coming to a close... my son and DIL weren't available for dinner so my younger son and I did carry out Italian... yummy... now I'm full and I think I'll get comfy in my chair and stitch some more while I watch my British shows on PBS...life is good!

I'm linking up with Kathy's Quilts today and Super Mom - No Cape tomorrow.

happy stitching-
carol fun

  4. I just started the Hi Again quilt last Wednesday. I'm only doing 42 blocks. The pattern was in a Fons & Porter magazine. I wasn't pleased with the directions. Several mistakes. I hope your pattern was better.
