Slow Sunday Stitching.

 I missed doing a blog post last week, and this week was looking iffy too. I got my second covid vaccination shot on Friday and it packed a bit of a punch with fever, headache and muscle aches. Thankfully it only lasted 24 hours and I’m now good to go, whenever there  is actually someplace to go to.

I have been doing a lot of stitching on the Friendship piece that Charlene gave me. When I last posted back at the end of June I was here. Since then I have finished the second house and done most of the grass and the path and the pond. There is a swan to go in the pond yet to do.

 I think I can safely say that this piece is at least 2/3rd finished. It will soon be time to think about finding a frame for it. This is going to be my occupation for the afternoon. It’s a lovely day so I will be spending it out on the porch. 

We are enjoying our new home, in spite of the seeming endless rain. I think I read a news report that said they have received several months worth of rain in the space of a couple of weeks. When we first moved up here the signs that are posted regarding forest fire risk were indicating that it was extreme. Now it is at low. And don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining about that at all. I know that people out in British Columbia and Alberta would be very grateful for the rain. But mostly we are grateful for the family around us the the beautiful scenery that surrounds us. 

I’m linking to Kathy’s Slow Sunday Stitching.


  1. Your stitching is beautiful--as is the sentiment! Glad you are mostly enjoying the weather. We would beg you to send any extra rain to parched California. Our rain total last year's rainy season was 3 inches :(

  2. Love your project, your stitching is beautiful. I second the thought about our poor rain deprived California!

  3. So glad you are enjoying your new home!
    And I hope you enjoyed stitching the swan today :)
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

  4. This project is so pretty. You have done a whole lot of stitching recently. So glad that the risk of fire is currently low. Glad you can stitch on your porch.

  5. I love watching this come to life! It doesnn't hurt that I'm partila to sheep... :-)
    Glad to hear that you got your second dose - maybe if enough of us get it, we can get back to some kind of normal. I have a new daughter-in-law to hug for the first time!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
