June WIPocalypse

June seems to have arrived rather quickly but its summer weather sure took its time arriving! It's been so unseasonable that I wasn't quite sure what to pack for my Prim Stitchers Society Retreat. Fortunately their weather in Pennsylvania seemed to be a little warmer than ours at home so summer attire prevailed. Before I get to the retreat I'll show you a pic of what I'm working on at the moment.
 Last month I had completed all save the border on LaDDa Awake My Soul. The border was a bit time consuming and it was the sole project that I worked on during retreat but I still didn't complete it until shortly after I returned home. It was a real hit with all the ladies at retreat a lot of it due to the fabric I chose.

The fabric is a Silkweaver evenweave which I found in my stash. I remembered that it was a Silkweaver but had to go onto their site to look up the colour which I believe is Autumn Blush. The fabric makes the colours pop and I love how it turned out. Time to save for some framing!

At retreat I picked up one of Nan Lewis' new designs (Threadwork Primitives) called Live Simply. As soon as I finished up Awake I started in on the new design. This past weekend I put in the final stitches.

This was a sweet little stitch which I hope to finish in a frame as Nan has with some ticking fabric and lace.Just click on my link to see her finish.

My latest start is by Heartstring Samplery and is called All The Pretty Flowers. 

Sorry, it's not the greatest pic but the lighting around here is pretty lousy right now. It's a sweet little summery piece that shouldn't take too long to complete.

After writing this I have decided to put up a separate post for the retreat. There are just too many pics to add and my computer isn't co-operating at the moment. So watch for a post to go up in the next few days with all my retreat goodies! See you then!

Edit: I forgot to say that I have loved reading all of your comments but suddenly I am not receiving them in my email any longer and I'm not able to reply to them. I've checked my settings and all is well so I don't know what has happened. Is anyone else having problems with this issue?


  1. Lovely stitching Lynn, I look forward to reading about your Retreat.

    We've all had trouble with the notifications- the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching posted the answer - I did an now get the emails 😄

  2. Great projects.
    I bet the La D Da piece is even more pretty in person.
    If this comes through, Andrea has a fix for it on her blog.


  3. These are all lovely, I really like the simple designs and pretty colours. x

  4. What beautiful finishes, Lynn! I really like the fabric you used for the La D Da piece. Your start on the basket of flowers is good.

  7. Beautiful stitching, Awake my Soul is gorgeous, such pretty colours.

    Yes we've all had trouble, it felt very lonely at times, but glad to say it should be sorted if you follow the directions. As other people have said, I have a post about it on my blog or Jo.
