More Mary Ann Blackburn WIP

It was wonderfully cool and brisk here a few weeks ago, and we found that to be very enjoyable. Now that has changed completely. Today it got up to ninety degrees.

I am still working on Mary Ann Blackburn.  I'm enjoying this one, and it will be done in a relatively short time compared to my pieces that are over a decade old.

Here it is now:

I think I am actually past the halfway done point on this one!

We did get a nice crop of lemons and avocados on Sunday.  These trees in our backyard are quite wonderful, and have been there for years and years.  There are still dozens of lemons on the tree, so I'll be picking more tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by today. 


  1. Beautiful stitching! Lovely lemons and avocados too! We hope our lemon tree starts producing more lemons. We had 8 this year but we only planted it about 1.5 years ago.

  2. Thanks for your compliment! Well, this tree is about 40+ years old so it is very productive. Right now as I look out on the tree I still see dozens of lemons. I wish I still liked to bake, as I would be baking up lemon bars by the score.


Thanks for leaving your thoughts and comments. I love hearing from you!
