Welcome JUNE

Wow a new month is upon us.  This year is flying by!  Woke up this morning to Sunshine and rain together.  Got to see a beautiful rainbow on the boy's Last Day of 9th grade!   

There's a little bird on the power line as well, but you can barely see him, .  He was too cute--basking in the sun!

Thought I'd wrap up May by showing you my ONE Finish:  


I both started and finished this in May.  I combined 2 design's into one.  The "Living" words are from Coutry Stitch Magazine Sept/Oct 1992 (no designer listed).  The Seaside Tiles are by Lucie Heaton found in CrossStitcher magazine March 2009.  I so love how it turned out.  Just need to decide how to Fully Finish it! Seriously considering framing or a pillow.  Would love to hear what you think?

Also wanted to share a few Needle Minders that I made for myself in May


The cute heart was on my Mother's Day card from the hubs.  It says "my wife, my love".  He had no idea when he bought the card I'd be using it on my cross stitch--Ha!  Got the birdcage and owl @ Hobby Lobby and the other one on clearance at Michael's.  I  get my magnets from my LNS or Stoney Creek.  

As this is a new month, I'm gonna let myself out of "timeout" and stitch on some Vintage WIP's for a Vintage SAL in the Finish Line FB group.   I'm also using one as my "Whine & Whips" for Stitch Maynia Group.  
Do you remember this guy? 

Definitely one I whine about!  I love the design and so want it finished, but I was so "all over the place" when I started it that I have a hard time finding my way.  I'm determined though!  I'll try to show my progress more often thru the month.  
Well that's all I've got time for for now.  Happy Stitching y'all!  =)  Pam
