Day Fifty Nine or is it Sixty

 Honestly, I don't care. But I have been stitching every day of spring. Got another 30 days till summer, but we're in the 90s for the next couple of days so I think summer has unofficially begun.

A little Ukrainian whitework piece designed by Terri Bay for Needle Arts magazine. Assembly required. But I'm debating putting something on the back to use this as a gift. 

Another assembly required, but stitching finished piece. I decided maybe 6 years ago to turn my I voted sticker into a pin. Well, I finally pulled it out of the unfinished pile. And here's the result.

Days Forty Eight, Nine and Fifty

 Getting lots of stitching time. But documenting is tough.

So here is progress on my black bellied whistling ducks from Lindy Stitches Bird Crush Club. Fabric is greener than the photo. 

Wow. I just counted and I should be on Day Fifty Three. So my numbers are off, but I have stitched every day since the first day of spring. Tomorrow I'll adjust the number to Fifty Four.

Day Forty Four, Five, Six and Seven

 And it's a finish. I've stitched every day. Just having difficulty documenting that.

Cooper Oaks Design by Warren Kimble. 

Phew. Funny how well it matches this comforter. It is one of four. Time for more basketweave!

May the 4th

 Or Day Forty Three. 

Still stitching snow. I decided to just continue the basketweave avalanche of white. So I update that photo tomorrow. 

I've got new distractions at our house.

Day Forty Two

 Been ripping. But I got to go pick up two samplers from the framers. Applause to Total Framing, like always. Happy to live near experts in needlework framing.

Day Forty One

 In which we pick up the Warren Kimble winter panel. I'm trying to figure out my snow.

The Stardust thread gives off particles which makes me cough. I have the same problem with Fuzzy Stuff and some wools. Stitching along and cough, cough, cough.

Day Thirty Nine and Forty

 Another finish. Makes for 16 total this year. Mahalo!

Day Thirty Eight

 The day in which I fail to take a single stitch.

Sigh. It was going to happen. Just home from vacation and work, preparing the house for new cats(!), meeting a May 1st deadline, etc. All too much.

Came home yesterday prepared to stitch. Even threaded the needle. But I picked up my IPad and played a game. And after dinner just caught up with Call the Midwife.

Today we welcome a pair of orange tabby brothers into our lives. Get ready for cat photos!

Day Thirty Seven

 Back in the swing of things like I never left. Work day. Not too much stitching. But I got a color that I like better for the sky.

Day Thirty Six

A long drive. Very little stitching. I did two threads. No photo because I'm exhausted.

I'm going to miss this view. And that sound.
