Cross stitching on the snowman continues. During the past week, I was able to finish the garland header. Admittedly, it was fiddly work and a few green and/or white stitches may have been transposed. Oh well and lol!
The pattern was designed by Sugar Stitches which I purchased on etsy. The last I looked the snowman chart was no longer available. She offers many other cute charts.
We had a 10-day stretch of 90 degree + (32+ celsius) weather which made for stitching small hand-held projects quite appealing. Our patio faces west which makes it too sunny for afternoon & early evening stitching. Yet it was lovely for sewing in the morning shade. One hot, muggy morning I sat outside for a couple hours enjoying the freshness of a new day.
While nearby neighbors were on vacation,
I tended to their lone yet cheerful sunflower!
On the last couple posts I had written and showed photos of the lavender in my garden. Today, I will be visiting a u-pick lavender farm with other girls in the family. Yay! We visited the farm last year. Since it is an outdoor activity, it is still open to the public. With so many things being cancelled this year, I am looking forward to this outing.
Later in the day I shall be sewing at the Slow Sunday Stitching linky party with Kathy and friends.
Have a good week!
