I have almost finished my wine...

I didn't have much time for stitching today, but I did manage to make more good progress on Bordeaux Sampler. Maybe I will finish it up after work tomorrow. All that is left now is the last bit of green border.

Today I found my first morning glory bloom of the season. I always look forward to my morning glories every year. They grow solely as annuals here, and I have to remember to plant some each spring. This year I used a pack of 30 cent seeds from WalMart - odd markings, but I love them :-)

Boy, do I envy you and your organization. Maybe I should take lessons and I would get more done. Lots of completions in one month. Beautiful pieces.

Marita said...

Wow you have been busy. Really looking forward to seeing the finished sampler.

Barbara said...

You're doing so great! You are a very organized stitcher indeed! A rare quality in most stitchers, me included ;)

Barbara said...

I love morning glories. They always remind me of my girlhood in New Hampshire. :)

Hi, what happened to Spring Ride? lol I managed about an hour and a half but I need to get some new batteries for my camera to take a photo.

I agree with the others about your organisation! What you set yourself to do in a month most of us only manage in a year!

What a great job on your goals!

Vonna said...

Superior work are you making a trip to the framers soon?
The BS is stunning...I'm preparing my legs for a jump for joy when you complete it!
I too love morning glories, and although I didn't get any planted this year....I am planning a new flower garden and have them on my "wishlist"! LOL!

Christine said...

It looks like you did great this month on your goals. Congratulations.

Karoline said...

I'm looking forward to seeing the completed Bordeaux Sampler, it's looking gorgeous

Jenn said...

Your so close Carol! I know you'll get it done tonight!! You've made a nice start on your RR too.

Deb L said...

I really enjoy watching your pieces unfold as you stitch them. And the level of interest in the designs you choose has captured some bit of my own curiosity. I may end up stitching samplers yet. :) It will be fun to see your wine piece framed.

Nicola said...

Looking forward to seeing Bordeaux finished, it's a lovely piece of stitching. Well done with all you've accomplished in June. I'm full of admiration for anyone that can set that amount of goals and complete them.

You have been a busy girl this month :) Your Bordeaux looks great, almost there yay!!!

Katrina in NZ said...

Go Carol go, another big project almost finished :)

Tannia said...

You make me exhausted just reading your list of finishes - all that and work too!

Bordeaux is really lovely...what do you do with all your finishes? Your walls must be choc-a-block with lovely goodies!

Karin said...

Fantastic progress on the sampler! Can't wait to see it finished.
