Flip Flop Days Finish!

I "finished" Flip Flop Days this week. I used the batik fabric that the piece is laying on in my last post for the back piece of fabric. The fuzzy thread was some my son picked out of a stash of "fun" threads I have. The piece is now hanging in my foyer for the summer.

I also finished stitching my May piece for the Bride's Tree SAL.

Designer: Blackbird Designs from 2004 Just Cross-stitch Ornament Issue
Fabric: 28 ct evenweave dyed with coffee
Threads: Recommended Sampler Threads, except replaced Straw Bonnet with Oatmeal. The Straw Bonnet did not show up on the fabric.

Stitched over one.

Since the Olympics start tonight I have been trying to find a "summer" design to stitch for the occasion. It seemed every pattern I picked something out of my stash I ended up not having the right fabric for the piece or hardly any of the threads. Finally I found the "Warm Water Wash" kit by Raise the Roof and located the fabric I had purchased for it and I am now set! So, we'll see how much I can get accomplished before the Olympics finish.

Don't forget the Stash Sale!
