Cross Stitch Snowman

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!
Jill

  2. oh that is so nice to be able to go pick lavender - I have never seen a place like that but have heard of them. I sit out with stitching and an audio book even if it is sticky and even if for only 30 minutes - I always feel the need to be outside for at least a little bit.

  6. The garland above the snowman looks great! It's a real eye catcher. That sunflower is magnificent. Is your plan to pick more lavender to add to yours? I really like the idea of a pick your own! Have a great day and enjoying your stitching when you get back to it.

  7. Your snowman is getting cuter and cuter! The garland does look fiddly, but no one else will ever know if a stitch or two are mixed up. Have fun at the lavendar farm - that sounds like a wonderful outing!

  9. I like that garland above the snowman. There are many times where I transpose some stitches. I no longer care unless it is quite obvious. I hope you enjoyed your trip to the lavender farm.
