I finished some projects!

The Violet Sampler - The Drawn Thread

Close up!

A Loose Feather Design from Black Bird Designs
I finished a couple of things before we left on vacation. This week has been busy with 4 H things. The kids did good on the fair though, DS won the shooting contest in his class and snagged a couple of purple ribbons for his canned tomatoes, and pj pants. DD is going to state with her healty recipe book. So they were both happy! Can't say that we put a lot of time and effort in this summer since we were gone but maybe we can do more next summer.
It's super hot here, yesterday I sat inside and stitched away on CHS Village of Hawk Run Hollow. I started square five! With 100 degrees outside stitching under the fan is pretty great!

Both your finishes are gorgeous. Seeing your DT and one in progress in another blog makes me want to start one!

Your BBD looks lovely. Will you be starting Rites of Spring? I'm about halfway on that one.

Congrats! On the 4-H, the kids will always remember the experience and hopefully keep it going down the line.

Beautiful finishes. Sounds like the kids did well at the fair. Congrats!! I know how much work goes into those things.

Wow!! Great to hear you have done some stitching on Village of Hawk Run Hollow. I have not stitched on it in months. Keep thinking I will get back to it. Keep up the good work.
