Or how about Short and Surprising? Maybe that's a better place to start. Surprising, because at the beginning of summer, I really had no intention of getting Miss Sarah Tuel back in action, much less wrapped up and done before the end of the year. and yet here's how she's looking headed into September.
After swearing up and down that I wasn't going to do all the over one stitching the original seemed to indicate, I had to eat at least some of my words. After adapting my way through the townsfolk without incident, it quickly became apparent there would be no fudging whatsoever If I wanted to get that scrolly little alphabet in place. So I put on my big girl panties, tightened up those scroll rods to the snapping point, loaded my needle with the darkest floss shade in the kit and plunged in.
Anyway, I'm pleased with how Miss Sarah is coming along and hope to have further progress to share next post.
One of the best parts of my summer was to spend time with my sisters and mother as she packed up to begin her new life in Texas. Another highlight was attending my nephew Scott's wedding with them then. Before the ceremony and at the reception , I had the chance to get some quick pictures of them, so please indulge me while I give them a shout out . I love you girls!
This is my sister Judy and her daughter Annika, all grown up and starting college this week....
Here is my sister Jane, with her girls Josie and Abby. No doubt they'll be starting college in a blink of an eye.
This is Teresa, with her best boy, grandson Will. Notice their coordinating colors?
And this is the grandmother of the groom, my mother. Ladies, you rock!
No doubt, the next time I post at least some of you will be getting a first hint of fall. Not so much down here for quite some time still, but in the meantime go to the beach every chance I get and keep pushing away on the surprising Miss Sarah. Have a good week!
