I did get some input on my hex horse while away at my sewing weekend. So this week I decided before I add another circle or two (good input from the ladies) I ran some darker thread through the stitching on the outer circle.
|Yes, this picture is upside down!! But you get the drift!|
This was before I added thread on the outside...sure gives more definition to the circles and I'm happy with that change.
Now to add one more circle to the bottom area and finish the stitching on the horse, which I did work on this week as well.
Yesterday, Darrin and Kris had us, Auntie Dawn and Uncle Jeff over for ribs and salmon! OMG! Darrin made the BEST ribs ever! Bob can't stop talking about it nor can I. For some reason this was the first time in years that I even ate the ribs! Delicious!! Of course, so was the grilled salmon, twice baked sweet potatoes, corn/zucchini fritters (Dawn made) and warm bread. YUM! I made corn/bean salsa, bruschetta, Key lime cake and chocolate chip cookies for the kids...although, Jeff didn't want any of the lime cake either....so he'll pay for that sometime in the future! HA
It's 89 degrees at the moment and too hot to do any weeding or outside work (THANK GOODNESS!) so guess it's stitching time and perhaps a Netflix afternoon! It's my day off...I did two walks with dogs early this a.m. but no dog lesson today either. Yes, I'm being selfish! It's all about me relaxing! Oh, I did a load of whites and sheets today! Does that count??
