A Catch Up !

Greetings Cloud Friends!  I hope all is going well with each of you.  We are still very warm and sunny.  As you might have heard, the US Open Golf Tournament is here this week and week-end.  The DH has tickets for the final round on Sun.  I will be home sitting on my lovely cool deck stitching, no golf crowds for me! I have head some people say that they are worried about the world seeing how beautiful it is out here.  The golf course is along Puget Sound , a lovely location.  That plus the week-end is to be sunny and warm, dispelling the myth that it rains all the time up here!
Anyway on to stitching.  I finished ,"In Full Glory" by BBD.  I used linen and threads that I had so I didn't follow the chart. The great thing was, it fit perfectly into an antique frame that the DH and I had bought several months ago.  It is another walnut with a small black inner border.  I love it. 
Since I am still in a patriotic mood, I started Heartstring Samplery's "For Spacious Skies".  I love the big flowers on this design.
I have also added a few pictures of our house on Flag Day and the hydrangea bushes.






 I can't wait till this is all blue!!

Thanks for joining me! Have a wonderful week!

  10. "In Full Glory" is perfect in the frame, Barb, and I love the colors that you used...sometimes a pull from stash ends up better than the charted ;) Your start on "For Spacious Skies" is coming along fabulous...again, I love the floss colors against the fabric.
    Your Home is so inviting and your Flag Day decorations look beautiful, I can't even imagine what a view you must have being so close to Puget Sound!
    Your Hydrangeas are going like gangbusters...look at all those blooms! Gorgeous...
    Have a great week
    Hugs

  15. You have been doing some very lovely patriotic stitching. I love the frame that you chose for the BBD piece. It's like made for the piece.
    Your hydrangeas are already in full bloom. Ours just have blossoms as it has been so rainy and cool here during the last weeks. And I even don't know what colour they will have. That will be a nice surprise.
