More Progress on Sarah B

I have been steadily working on Sarah.  All of the motifs are completed, and now it is time to stitch all the satin stitches. And I mean ALL--there are a lot of them scattered throughout the piece. I probably should have done them as I went along instead of waiting until the end.

First I am working on the center parts, last will be the double satin stitch border.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Sarah B Progress

Summer is quickly passing by us. We are staying home, relishing simple things.

I am still working on Sarah B. I will need to go back and do all the satin stitches, as well as the rest of the lettering. These parts will take me a long time, to be sure.

 On a positive note, I am almost done with the motifs!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Progress on Sarah

It has been a busy few weeks around here. We are still staying home.  Many orders have been lifted in our area and there is more freedom to go places, but we choose to stay in our home.  When we go outside, we wear masks and are very cautious.

 We have also been isolated from other family members and friends since the middle part of March.  We miss them all so much!

Zoom meetings help a bit in staying connected, but it's not quite the same. Nonetheless we are grateful that we have technology.

Lately I have been working on Sarah Braizear 1829.  Here is my progress on this piece.  I'm finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.

Learning Curve on the iPad , Some Progress, and Neighborhood Flowers

I recently switched to posting from my iPad. There is a definite learning curve involved!

Today I accidentally deleted a comment written yesterday. Please know this was not done on purpose. I did not even see who left it, and I deeply apologize for deleting your comment.

We have been walking a lot this season, and I have been stitching most days as well.

Sharing photos of stitching and recent views on walks and in our yard.

Thanks for stopping by today.

While on our evening walk we viewed a gorgeous scene in our neighborhood.  The jacaranda trees' leaves adorned the street in lovely purple hues. 

Here is Sarah B. as she looks today:

A very blue sky for our area, and lovely jacarandas. 
The pandemic's stay-at-home orders helped out a lot with air pollution. 
This was a magical morning in early May:
