Back to this one

I haven't worked on any counted cross stitch this summer, why? I'm not sure. I think counted cross stitch requires a lot of concentration, and I just haven't wanted to concentrate on it? I don't know. But I picked this up yesterday and thought to myself 'once this starts looking like something you will want to keep working on it' and that thought seems right:

I'm not sure what all that background stuff is, sorry. But you can see the outlines here of five different trees and so I think I'll like working on it more now.

That's about it--lots of errands and tossing out of stuff happening here in Eugene.

Your summer looks great. I love all that kayaking that you've been doing. I need to get over to our little lake a rent a kayak on a regular basis!
Your cards are beautiful.
The blue shawl is gorgeous. The color changes won't show when you are wearing it.
Good for you for picking up the cross-stitch project. That's not easy to do!

There's something to the "Christmas in July" stuff. My mother would be working o cross-stitch ornaments by now.

...And I suddenly have the urge to listen to Christmas carols. Yikes! It's going to be a long August. :) Beautiful stitching!

The cross stitch looks lovely but while you have gotten me back to hand embroidery, the cross stitch is out of the question with my silly eyes!
