Blog Stitching on Queendom Website

When exactly do the dog days of summer start? I think of them as August, but this year it seems like August has come early. These days are hot and muggy now, typical August weather.

A couple of days ago I cut up a square of gray 18-mesh canvas, mounted it on stretcher bars, chose a turquoise pearl cotton and started a new little geometric. I was just fiddling.

I like the turquoise start so I went in search of some more threads, organized some thoughts about the small geometric and decided to while away the dog days of summer on Queendom Website by 'blog stitching'.

To watch my progress, follow along by clicking on
Or will work also.

I like the start, with the turquoise on gray. Now I'll see if I like how the other threads work as well.

Nice way to while away the days.

One last look at our beautiful CampStitch

A fantasy trip into the wilderness is over. We were at CampStitch for a little more than 2 months and I am hoping people used the trip wisely to accomplish Stash Reduction.

I did quite well! I worked on several new designs for E-Week, my biggest sale of the year, in mid-October.

Actually it will be a bit earlier this year. I just checked the calendar and marked the date: October 8, bright and early, my yearly E-Week sale will begin. This year I will have all new designs, except for one. The oldie will come back in a supporting role to show where two new ones came from, much the same way that I brought back my oldest geometric, Santa Fe Square, last year.

I'm going to have to buckle down and stitch some long hours to finish in time, but it seems to me like I will be able to do it. Only weeks left, so I hope to continue making the most of them.

Meanwhile, stop by Queendom Website to take one last look at our beautiful CampStitch.
