 I can't believe it is already July, so where did June go? I had a wonderful time on my stitching retreat will post about that in a separate post. Been recovering from the spider bites I got on my neck at the retreat. I also as you can see done a lot of crocheting and some machine embroidery.
WFSB flowers

 Still working slowly on my Lily pond Cal, only on part 1 and part 8 is out now but I don't want to rush it is very relaxing to stitch it.
 San Francisco Stitch Co. is having another Summer Road trip and I've done the first 3 weeks and working on the 4th one sometime this week.

 This is another crochet project that I'm taking my time on it is the Scheepjes Flight of fancy Cal and it is going to be a shawl when finished, I ordered the Peacock kit, and love the linen yarn and colors in the kit.

 I hope everyone had a good 4th of July. I had a quiet one.  Me & Hubby might be going to one of the Springs here this weekend we will see how I feel I'm really looking forward to getting out.
Have a Blessed Week!

World's Biggest Stocking-- Updated

UPDATE:
I realized that I started with the wrong color, want it red, white and blue not Blue, white and red so frogged and restarted it with red.
Just started my square for the World's Biggest stocking. I'm using Red, White and Blue Caron United Yarn for it. You can click on the link on my sidebar or click on #‎worldsbiggeststocking‬ to find out how you can join in to.
Hope you have a Blessed Week!

Working on stuff and a Finish........

Mystery CAL
 Yippy I got the Mystery CAL finished. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Now I have to put the Lily Pond CAL on hold while I get ready for my Cross Stitch Retreat in June. I'm making a bunch of surprises for everyone, there are going to be 41 of us there.
surprises
 Plus I have to stitch this for the gift exchange.
Stitched gift
 Also have to do prep work for the retreat got the kit in the mail today. Waiting on my new thread holder to get here so I can sort the floss.
Retreat kit
 The fabric is 28count so not sure I will be able to see the holes to stitch it if not I have some other fabric I can choose from but, if I can will be using this greenish one instead of the brown they sent.
Other fabric
I am so looking forward to this, I've always wanted to go on a retreat but they are normally to far away for me to get there. So this is an early BDay present for me this year. My Bday is the 16th of June and the retreat is the 5th thru 7th.
Well I hope everyone has a Blessed Mother's Day tomorrow and a great week.
Huggs,
