Happy Labor Day and My Project of the Week
To those enjoying a break from their labors this Monday, Happy Labor Day! To those like me, who must work on Labor Day, I hope you have a wonderful day and get to spend some of it relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family.
Mark and I worked out in the yard yesterday morning and evening, so I didn't get anything stitched on Heart of America. I did however, look through my WIP basket and pull out a different LHN design, City Stitcher Country Stitcher. I put a few stitches in her last night while watching the late news and Sunday night sports wrap up. I decided I could actually get a finish out of this project this week, if I work diligently on it and don't slack off.
Here's the most recent pic I have of her, taken in March (yikes!). Last night, I finished the flowers in the bottom border on the left (those things that look like "w"s on the bottom) and started on the 2nd row of green sprigs of grass under the house on the left.
All I have left to do is finish the grass sprigs and sunflowers on the left, put the berries on the tree, and do the long stitches on the window panes of the houses and I'll be finished!!
