Back in May, I started to post an entry about my 2016 Stitch of the Month, which is finally finished. Well life got in the way and the blog entry never got published. Here is what it said:
“So I’m only five months behind, but I prevailed. I am totally finished and framed with Stitch of the Month for 2016. It is the ANG Stitch of the Month by Susan Hoekstra (a former NJNA member) It is called Feuilles D’Ananas. This is a fun way to stitch a project and I liked figuring out the variations on the turquoise color scheme.
I won’t be around much the next several months, so I won’t be able to attend our chapter’s official Stitch of the Month monthly gatherings. However, I am hopeful to take a stitch or two of this year’s project, Tony Minieri’s “Stars for the New Millennium.” I”ll keep you posted! I wish a fun summer for all.”
Well, I am now addicted to the “Stars” piece. I am having so much fun. Working on that design is keeping me from doing the baby knitting that I need done by September when my newest grandchild will be born. I agree with Jill W., these colors make me happy! I can’t wait to see how the next area showcases all of them . My overdyed thread is Silk and Colors, 994 – Kaleidoscope. All of it just pops!
So now I will really wish all of you a wonderful summer. I will miss all of you in the fall while I help out with the big sister and brother and of course the new baby. Grandchildren are the only thing that will trump my addiction on stitching the Stitch of the Month projects! Happy stitching to all.
Barbara – we miss you at our monthly sessions. Your Feuilles d’Ananas looks beautiful and Stars is just fantastic. Can’t wait to see your progress. Congratulations on the new grandchild!
