Here is my July We Bee Learning Bee Block for Trina. She chose this block and asked for purple, black and white with the background being white. She lives in Canada and I'm trying to get it in the mail early this month. It seems my blocks are taking a minimum of two weeks to reach my Canadian bee mates. Next month is my month and I've been thinking of block selection and color.
Thank you all for your suggestions and tips about stitching over 1. I've gotten the first row done and I'm going to put your tips into practice on row 2. I have to say, stitching over 1 isn't my favorite, especially on 40 count. I feel like it's my eyes that are crossing instead of my stitches sometimes. For those of you who enjoy over 1 or do it all at once, I'm in awe. I'm having to pace myself and I'm not sure I'll get it all done before the rest of it.
Several of you sent me your favorite links too. You can find some of them here, here, here, here and here. Some really good stuff that you shared! Thank you!
Greg painted Jake's room yesterday and I love the gray color we found - Glidden's Granite Grey (you can see it on someone else's wall here). We lightened it 25% and I'm glad we did. Carpet estimate this week as well and today we made our final selection and placed our order. Next up - closet reorgs. We put in built ins years ago that sit on the floor so before the carpet people come, we need to make whatever changes we need to make. Jake's closet is coming out and being replaced and we'll probably remove one element from ours and do some tweaking. We'll all be glad when this is done.
I hope you all have had a good weekend and enjoy a good week. Thank you for your visits, your comments, and the inspiration!
