IHSW, and what a treat it was for me as I cannot even remember the last one that I participated in, what with all of the "goings on" at The Corner...
Now, keep in mind that I did not stitch up a storm or cause any needles to smoke, but I did sit down and put a few stitches to fabric...
|Waxing Moon Freebie "Summer Sparrow"|
I just don't seem to have the attention span for stitching, nor the mojo, these days that once kept me riveted to my WIP for days on end. But, as I have such an abundance of stash it is imperative that this girl gets it going again...and soon!
So, with that in mind I decided to put aside my big WIPs, which seem so daunting to me these days, and I focused my "attention" on some of the (many) small freebies that I have collected, over the years, from our very generous designers. I love the idea, that so many have shared, of placing them in a bowl with a seasonal rotation in mind...
I started with this little cutie from "Waxing Moon"
I believe that even I, with the shortest of attention spans, can accomplish this...I have always said that what I lack in perseverance I make up for in passion.
I even managed to get some more packing done...
And cleaned out another room or two.
I enjoyed a glass of wine in the evenings, and a Father's Day BBQ on Sunday, hosted by The Newlyweds, in which they outdid themselves with both the fabulous cuisine and the fun group assembled...we ate, we laughed, and we enjoyed watching our two sweet birds creating a nest of their own...heart warming!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention, one very attentive and cuddly little girl who made this IHSW perfect, by keeping her Mama company...
Thanks for stopping by for a visit, and for muddling through this post with me, and I send you off upon your day with a hug and thoughts for a Monday filled with the joy that comes from the awakenings of summer...and the hope that you find yourself putting needle to fabric at days end.
I am adding links to the wonderful and gorgeous (copyright respectful) freebies that I will be stitching throughout the summer...so ya'll can enjoy them too...
