Procrastination Champ!!!

Thank you so much for all your kind comments about Salem Village and my garden.  Our weather is warm and sunny so the garden just grows prettier by the day.  It does keep the SBA and me busy dead-heading! As you can see from the title of this blog , I have given myself  a new name.  In the last post I showed you a design I had stitched 17 years ago and done nothing with it.  Thanks for all your wonderful suggestions for finishing that piece.  I'm determined to finish it in a nice way!! While I was looking for that ornament, look what else I found! As you can see from the date, it has been awhile.  Now, I had great plans for these.  I have basically neutral upholstery in my family room.  I like to change the accessories with the season.  In the winter, I like the warm barn red for throws and pillows.  In the spring and summer, I like this soft blue.  Well, these were to be made into pillows for my sofa. I even went as far as picking out and ordering my fabric.  I have a new goal- this is the summer!!!!!



 The color looks different but it is not, just the camera.

 Do you see that year??!!!!!

See how great the fabric goes with the finish!!
It is no wonder I gave myself  that title!
Thanks so much for taking a look.  Tomorrow it is road trip time.  We are headed up to Sequim.  All the lavender fields are blooming .  I hope you will enjoy seeing those beautiful fields!

  7. Beautiful finish! You will enjoy it all the more knowing it did indeed get finished, rather than languishing in a box somewhere!

  8. I love these samplers and that shade of blue! In fact, I love them so much that both of these are at the top of my pile of "samplers I want to stitch right now! ". They will make wonderful pillows.
