Summer Stuff

Just back from a week's vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine, with lots of hiking in Acadia National Park. Spectacular. A few pictures coming soon.

We rolled in at 1 a.m. Saturday morning after a four-hour flight delay due to weather, but I actually managed to get a little finishing done when I regained conciousness.

Here's a little freebie from The Little Stitcher. It's stitched on 28 ct. dirty Cashel linen with DMC Color Variations.

And here's my little summer freebie (posted below) finished.

So. I have a functioning computer, a new camera, I'm back from vacation, and I have some time to stitch. Stand by to be astounded.


  1. ooOoo! Life sounds real good for you right now. Such sweet finishing too. Good for you. =)

  2. I love your mermaid finish-so creative and pretty! I had seen that freebie before and passed on it, but after seeing what you did with it, I love it and hope to stitch one similiar to yours. I hope you don't mind copycats! ;-)

    1. Thanks, Tracy... I don't mind at all! DMC colors are 407, 648, 950 and DMC Color Variations colors are 4000, 4030, 4129, 4200, 4237. Also used some blending filament to make the tails sparkly. Have fun!

  3. Your finished finishes are beautiful:)

  4. LOVE the sparkly netting you finished the mermaids with! And 'Summer' is none too shabby. Standing by! (Well, sitting and tapping my fingers.)
