Lee the Lake Stitcher's Stitching Bloggers Question of the Month.....

Our Stitching Bloggers Question is all about May Flowers.

What's your favorite floral piece that you've stitched? Do you prefer your flowers as the centerpiece of the design or as an accent?

Wow almost 3 weeks since I babbled about something... So let's get to it by starting off with Lee's question. Well I've narrowed it down to two pieces that I've done in the past.

1) Summer's End by Pamela Kellogg of Kitty and Me Country Crafts

2) To Love and Cherish by Sandy Orton

As far as centerpiece or accent of a design I could go either way. Although I've noticed in most of the projects I've done in the past I've leaned toward accent.


The packing of the last of my apartment stuff - i.e. the kitchen - is going at a slower pace then I had anticipated. Do to the laser surgery on my right leg last Friday to collapse a vein. I didn't realize just how bruised and swollen the entire inside of my right leg would be. Packing the boxes isn't the problem it's that I live on the second floor and I don't know if I can constantly go up and down a flight of stairs carrying boxes without making my leg hurt worse. I do wear a compression stocking at work and while I sleep otherwise I'd be in too much pain to do much of anything but lay flat on my back in bed for 3 weeks.

Anyway, I've put maybe 12 stitches in "Birds" so no update to show. In fact I'll be packing up my Ott Light for another box run ( leg willing ) this Saturday, which means my stitching project will be bagged up and moved as well. So I guess this will be my first and last post for this month.
