This beautiful Lanarte design was stitched by Olive. It is so delicate.
I am fortunate to have access to the fabulous work of the Thursday stitchers for displaying here. My own stitching goes pretty slow sometimes. I am also pretty slow at photographing my WIPs and transferring the pictures to the computer. I did finish the first little Assissi pin cushion from "The Gift of Stitching" magazine and have started a second one but it has been so hot here these last few days, it is just easier to read than to stitch.
I have read two books by Jan Burke Bloodlines and Kidnapped. I will read more in the Irene Kelly series but I think I will pace myself and intersperse them with other books. I picked up quite an assortment at the library yesterday and am currently reading The Merlot Murders by Ellen Crosby. It came recommended by the Librarian but I am reserving judgement till I get further along in it.
When I got home last night my husband informed me that we have a new family in the neighbourhood. Apparently he saw a mama raccoon and 4 babies wandering around the back. They appear to be living under or near our shed. I knew I was feeding at least one raccoon since each morning everything I put in the composter the previous evening, had disappeared. I had no idea we were supporting a whole family!
