August WIPocalypse from the cottage

We're finally at the cottage and it doesn't get any better than this!
The photo above is the view from our front porch. The weather so far has been topnotch and it promises to be a wonderful week. With our arrival at the lake comes time for stitching on the dock, or on the porch and so I've brought several projects with me.

 I've finally got the Torah stitch underway although I don't have enough yet for a photo. Paradis Perdu has also followed me here in the hopes that I get a few more stitches put into this WIP.
For now though, I have three finishes to report for this past month. Unfortunately you'll only see my ornament finish on the last Wednesday of the month. However here's a sneak peek. See if you can guess the designer of this one.

I also finished up my Halloween stitch. This one is Barbara Ana Designs A Wicked Plant.

Unsure as to what my next big stitch would be, I found a lovely new freebie online from SubRosa which I called Beehive. You saw the beginnings on my last post and I'm happy to say that today I finished it up here at the cottage. It's such a pretty little design and I'm planning on a pin pillow finish for this one.

 I have two planned new starts. The first is The Pink Sparrow Sampler by With Thy Needle & Thread Designs and the second is a Blackbird Design for the Ladies Prim Society. Hopefully I'll have a pic of one or the other soon. Until then, enjoy your week!

  11. I love Wicked Plant. Congrats on your finishes! Enjoy!

  12. Ohhh, wonderful view from the cottage onto the lake. I'm sure you are fully enjoying the days there.
    Both your finishes look fantastic, they are like most of your stitching completely my cup of tea. I'm looking forward to seeing your next project. I have kitted up a BBD project myself but will start on it only later in the year because I have some other projects that I want to start first.
    Have a wonderful time at the lake.

  13. Looks like you've had a beautiful and productive week. Happy Stitching!
