It is stitched on 36 count khaki Linen with hand dyed threads I picked out. Not a good picture.. We are still having rain and no sun. Next up is my progress on BBD Anniversaries Of The Heart.
The Letters MICH is for the state of Michigan. The 1970 is for the year we lived there. I also put the first letter of each of our names. A - April J- Johnette (mom) & P- PeeWee ( dad). Brother Trey was not born till 1972. So don't worry about him. Or feel sorry for him. He is just the baby of the family...I have a square picked out just for him, alone... lol I do have trouble with these hand dyed threads. They are never the same color for one order to the next. I have 3 Dried Thyme. No 2 are alike... As you can see. I have started the Valentine Square. I still have a special gift to make for Aunt Debbie. Her Birthday is coming up March. So... this month I will work on her project.
I am going to sew 2 cute pillow cases for the grandchildren this weekend. I have been watching Youtube to see how it is done. I have everything ready.. So cross your fingers for me.
I had 2 places(moley looking things) cut off my body yesterday. Waiting on test to come back. Hope it is not the bad skin cancer. I had a tanning bed for about 5 years. I used to joke I was the the whitest person that owned a tanning bed. I did use it.. Since I stopped using it, I have had a lot of places come out on my skin. Dr said my reddish hair, freckled white skin is not a good thing for sun.. I think he was trying to tell me, in a nice way, that my sun worshipping days of old is to be NO MORE ! So from now on 45 or higher and untanned legs with all my skirts... I have tried the self-tanners.. O yeah... I have wrinkles and dry skin.. so that stuff just gets in those wrinkles and on those dry spots and looks like caked on dirt. Like I need a bath.. No thank you... lol
Enough about me aging and problem skin... I am going to fold 3 baskets of clothes. Did I mention... I hate to fold clothes? Till later......
