Wip's and a finish

During my blogging break I did finish Summer from Drawn Thread, I loved how it turned out. The frame is waiting for it already, just have to sit down and start a finishing frenzy.

I'm working on this Mill Hill turtle for my daughter.I have been trying to actually finish up things that I have started and this is one of then. I'm doing ok with it, could be better though.

My Sanctuary SAL has been neglected the last 2 weeks. It was so busy with my dad here and last Tuesday I only had 40 minutes to sit down and stitch so I didn't even bother to switch projects that night. To make up for it I brought Sanctuary with me to a SAL this Saturday and worked on it the whole time there so I got quite a bit done.

My dad left a week ago and I have been busy cleaning house since. I'm pretty much caught up on that now and I have gotten most of my carpets cleaned so another one of the big projects for this summer are checked off. So now I'm prepping to paint the older kids rooms. It's easier to do that in the summer when I can move them down to the guest room for a couple of days. I'm not looking forward to sorting through my sons room, lots of things going to goodwill and ready to be packed away.

Thank you for all your sweet comments on my last post!!

Sorting thru the kids' closets and bureaus is one of my least favorite jobs. Good luck with it!

Wonderful stitching and I just love your progress on Sanctuary!!

What a pretty finish! I've not seen this one before. It's just the perfect summer stitch. I can't wait to see it framed.
Your daughter's turtle is very cute! I'm sure she'll love it.
You've made some great progress on Sanctuary. Another pretty stitch!

Such a pretty finish, Kajsa! It reminds me a bit of the Drawn Thread Sunflower Bellpull that I finished recently. I just loved working with those colors, didn't you?

Cute little turtle, too! Sounds like you have a busy summer with lots of projects planned... Good luck with the painting and sorting :)
