I love my new look but I need to know where in the code to put the links to all the blogs that I read. So, Katrina, if you are reading this post (or anyone else who's downloaded Leena's templates) could help me figure out where to put the links.
Thanks for visiting my blog, I am happy that you stopped by!
I hope you like the new look. It's fresh and fun. I used Passamonta's templates but there was a problem with them and I was so afraid to lose my blog. Funny, I am attached to it!
Anyway, on the stitching front, I am in a Blackbird Designs phase. I've been working on Where My Heart Blooms (I should say frogging it) each night this week. It's a killer though cause the frogs will not leave me alone with this piece. I realized that I made a counting error on the top right on the border (13 stitches, not 12!!) and I had to tear 3 strawberries, that portion of the border and almost all the right side out. It was frustrating but I am almost done restitching that portion. And I have a strong desire to begin Souvenier Sampler. Has anyone joined the fabric together? Any hints or tips?
This will be a quick post, I am late in leaving for my bible study...so I gotta run! More later!

And look at this glorious peony! From MY garden! It's as big as a dinner plate and smells divine. I have an abundance of peonies this year. And I love them so much!
Lastly, a bit of a brag, I built that little rock wall (granted it's only 3 courses high) by my own hands over Memorial day weekend. The David did not lift a finger except to remove the sod when we extended it an extra 2 feet in width to match the edge of the sidewalk. It looks good if I do say so myself and I am PROUD of myself to follow through on a vision until it was finished. I was dog tired after I finished it that weekend but I haven't stopped grinning when I look at it.
(Excuse the house, it's f-ugly and the boys waxing the big truck in the backyard.)
I hope you had a great weekend, stitching and having a wonderful day with your Daddy. Mine is in heaven but I felt his presence all day. HAPPY FATHER'S DAY, DAD..with love from your girl....

It's a Quaker design for an exchange on Legacy. I don't believe my partner reads my blog so I think I am safe in posting the pictures. I am really happy how this worked out, I almost didn't finish it this way because it's a fiddlely thing to make. I do wish that I used a different basket, because the swing handles on the Nantucket basket move, the lid doesn't stay where I want it to. I am toying with attaching a button on each side of the basket and then a loop on each side the lid.
I purchased the basket at the Christmas Tree Shoppe, don't ya just love a bargain!
