More Progress on my Serenity Harbor

Here's a little more progress on my Serenity Harbor. This is such a fun project to work on, especially when it is so hot outside.  More to come later.   Thank you to those who have been so kind as to leave such nice comments.   I am finally done studying for my Ham Radio license upgrade and can spend more time stitching.

Serenity Harbor WIP

I have much more stitching to do on Serenity Harbor.  There needs to be more hours in the day as it has just been a very busy summer.  I hope to stay cool and work on this lovely sampler and get much more accomplished soon.  Life sometimes gets in the way of my stitching time, but it is all good.  Thank you Donna Bayliss for sending the blocks to me so quickly as even though I am behind, I intend to enjoy this one right up to the last stitch.   My dh really loves it too being from Camden, Maine.   I got more thread for the water.  It is part of my favorite area to stitch.

Hatband for my Husband

This is a hatband that I made for my dh that he actually designed.  I did the cross stitch on 40 ct Linen that I had.  He and I worked together to figure out something Southwest, but yet having his Vietnam Ribbon on it as well,  I need to get back to my samplers too but this was a fun stitch.  I have been studying for an upgrade to my Ham Radio license and it is interfering with my stitching lol.   I did enjoy this for  my dh and so glad he likes it too.  I used my Ultimate Mini Frame and then cut the fabric and hemmed the edges for his hatband.

Progress on Eleanor Parr



I am slowly but surely working on Eleanor Parr when I have a chance and had hoped to finish this bird but we are showing WIP's so I decided to just make a post. We had some errands yesterday to run so my stitching time got cut a bit short yesterday. I so love working on this though and love stitching the birds. I did make a bit of progress on some leaves and vines and then just had to go on to another bird. Today is a wet day outside with showers on and off, so maybe I can make a bit more progress. Thank you to those who were kind and left me some nice comments! :)

Eleanor Parr's Bird

This is the first bird that I stitched on Eleanor Parr.   I love this and all of the birds on Eleanor, but I kept looking at this one and decided it needed a new makeover.  Something just didn't look right on this one so I frogged out the blues in this one and changed how they worked together and now I really think I like it even more.   It is like this bird needed to go through a moulting and the new feathers are in now.  I hope ya all like the change.  I have chosen my colors but sometimes you just have to experiment a bit to see how they blend together to get the result and I for one am happier with this one.  I am glad I did this before moving on the the Blue Jay.  These blues are better for me.  Thank you Barb for your sweet comment!

I am official now with holding my technician license in ham radio.   I am excited as the test was not easy and I learned about some electronics issues to pass.  Jerry and I both plan to try for our general license in July too.  One thing I love about it is everyone is very polite and nice on there as the FCC has strict conduct rules.  No one bashes anyone and it is a really great bunch of people all over the world who we can talk with.  .  To anyone else who is in Ham Radio, who may read my blog, 73 to you.   KG5HTP

More Progress on Eleanor Parr

                           26 Inch Frame and Tabletop/Lapstand by Wooden Treasures

This is my latest progress photo of Eleanor Parr.  I am really loving the leaves and vines and the colors are just as I had hoped they would be.  Thank you everyone who sent me postings on our situation in Houston.  We are finally getting some nice sunny days and things are hopefully getting better near the rivers.  I have been working on this and enjoying it very much.   Today Jerry and I got our Amateur Radio call signs from the FCC so today we are able to talk to others on the Ham Radio bands.   Lots of great things going here.  Thank you all for your comments here!
