Ugh it has been a time trying to post this! One problem after another!

I have finished a recent project and it actually got fully finished as it was a birthday present for my mom.

The pattern is Hello Summer by Its Sew Emma. It was fun to stitch and didn’t take long. I am not fully happy with how the white looks on the navy fabric, but oh well, it got done. I’m also glad no one on here will be able to inspect my finish as it as well isn’t perfect, but is done.

I made my mom help choose the finishing fabrics and she didn’t know it was for her. I plan to do this pattern again for myself, but I want to use a hot pink instead of the red. If anyone has a suggestion of a popsicle pink DMC colour, I would appreciate hearing it. ( Hopefully I can get into comments!)

I seem to just cross stitch presents lately as I immediately started a present for my teaching partner for her birthday in August. It shouldn’t be a problem to get this done as I am about a quarter done already.

The pattern is called Adventure Awaits by AnnaXStitch and I got it off Etsy. I have changed most of the colours so that the bike will look like my friends’ bike. I am also thinking about adding the words “on Peggy Sue” at the bottom as that is the name of her bike.

Well I think that’s it for me right now. I can’t wait to see everyone else’s projects.I am four days away from holidays, so will actually be able to look and read posts then!

  1. oooooh I love your “hello summer” finish – that striped fabric really is in keeping with the theme! And looking forward to seeing the new project progress.

  2. Your Mom’s gift is adorable and I am sure she will be both surprised and delighted with it. YES ~ change the name on the gift for your teaching partner. She is going to love this too 🙂

    1. I’m hoping to do more cross stitch gifts this year. Maybe half cross stitch, half knitting, but it will depend on what I can find
