I am on a tight time schedule to get this stitched for TGOS - I must have it all done and nicely framed BEFORE November !! I am almost half way done - but there are still more stitches in the clouds, then the sun (You knew there had to be sun,) Then the bit of text and a pretty bottom border. Oh, and a cartouche with initials and date. Yum yum!

I'm working on something new - You will see the entire piece in December's 'The Gift of Stitching'. It is a miniature companion piece to another design of mine that most of you know well by now.

Many years ago, and maybe it is still there, I visited a wonderful bakery shop in Carmel-By-The-Sea (California). It sold buttery rich shortbread cookies stamped and pierced with the prettiest of designs. A bird, a stylized daisy, ornate letters of alphabet - and some were crisscrossed in a sort of plaid design, as I recall. And then there were those great big waffle cookies that took all afternoon to munch - and everything in between!
The borders on this design are all reminiscent of those carefree jaunts, wandering up the steeply sloped streets of Carmel, now so far away. Perhaps I will return one day.
See a little more on my main site.

Yes, I am still working on Swiss Topiary from Crown Stitches (2008 SAL) after all this time! I have been a little preoccupied as you may know with the Counted Wishes Festival. I am trying out some various color combinations on this Quaker freebie. I really need to get this done so I can move along to all those other goodies in my stash! -Deb in Idaho
