How was your holiday weekend? Mine was nice. We go to a short Memorial Day service at the Mill Springs National Cemetery that's about five minutes away from our house. This was the third year that we've attended and we wouldn't feel right if we weren't there. It touches our hearts to see the now elderly retired servicemen there and now we are seeing younger folks who may have a family member who has passed away recently while defending our country. Masterchief and I will both end up there one day. I count it as a great honor to have a national cemetery be my final resting place. I'm in no hurry to get there, mind you!
I am still playing catch-up with all the blogs on my list. I know I will never get to them all but I am trying to read and comment on a few between unpacking and readjusting to actually having more than one room to live in. I know I must say this every time I get home after an outage but we truly appreciate what we have after not having it for about two months!
In the evenings I try to put a few stitches in The Child's Guardian. I am almost done. I have put my name and date at the bottom and am now putting those five little blue stitches in each of the spaces in the woven border. I started in the upper right corner, so let's see....75 little blue stitches complete.....410 little blue stitches to go!
That makes it sound like so many.
It's hard to get a good picture of it. It measures almost a perfect square from stitch to stitch, 13 1/4" x 13 1/2". I'm pretty sure this is 30 count although I can't seem to find where I wrote the info on this one down. I've been working on it off and on since December. I think it's about time I get it done!
Oh that reminds me.....can anyone tell me if DMC threads are colorfast or not? I feel I should know the answer to this one but I don't mind admitting that my brain is functioning at a minimum at the moment.
OK...so it's been more than a moment. :^(
I ran across a recipe on Pinterest the other day I thought I'd try.
It's strawberry upside down cake and ohhhh it's soooo gooood!
I must go work on those little blue stitches now. Thanks so much for remaining loyal followers and dear friends even when I must take some time away from blogging. Stitchy friends are AWESOME!!
Until next time...
