After bairly stitching during my vacation it finally feels good to have a few new finishes. The first one is a pattern from Simply Old Fashion. I changed the colors from what was listed because I could not see spending the $5.00 for each skien for the silk floss it suggested. Its such a small project. I used Crescent Colors - Fool's Gold and Gentle Arts - Autumn Leaves. I really like how this turned out, now I just need to find a frame for it so I can give it to a friend as a thank you for watching some of my pets while I was gone.
The next one is a the June part of the Mini Celebrations set from The Stitching Parlor. Its stitched using DMC colors or Bone colored linen. I will finish it into an ornament at a later time.
I have fallen behind on all of my monthly stitching projects due to my vacation so I may just skip some of them and go onto the July stuff and go back to them at a later date.

Wow has it really been a month since I last posted. I was on vacation for 18 days so I am now playing catch up on everything. I didn't really get anything stitched while I was gone but I did manage to take my jar with me and find some pretty flowers in the forest to put it next too. Not sure what the flowers are but they were in the parking lot for a hiking trail about an hour outside of Seattle, Washington.
