Good Evening Everyone!
Today was a warm one so I was inside most of this afternoon. I got my mowing done this morning while it was still comfortable outside.
In my last post I told you all about our medical stuff going on and I am happy to report that everyone is on the mend and feeling much better. My husband and grandson still have some healing to do but they are doing great.
Our 4th of July was spent at a small town celebration - we have attended this celebration for about 10 years. And our whole family usually attends

Now on to some of my stitching projects that I have worked on.
I worked on Woodland folks a little bit and then decided I needed to enlarge the chart so I could see it better. But here is a picture of my progress so far.

started on the wooden log

While I was waiting to get the chart enlarged I worked on Prairie Gardens
 
As you can see I had a lot more completed on this square but miscounted and I just could not make it work with out pulling out all the stitches and start over on it. I have it all frogged and started over, this time I started on the bottom of the square. That seems to work the best for me.

The other thing that I worked on was some Christmas Wreaths & Stars Quilt blocks
January, February, & March Blocks

January - Bear Paw Wreath
February - Snowflake Star
March - Pinwheel Wreath
Well that is about it for me tonight - time to get ready for bed
I hope everyone enjoys there Sunday!
Happy Stitching
Denise
