And on the paper crafting front...

I have been working hard on a card making class for my team's upcoming crop weekend which will include a project led by Close To My Heart's own Kristine Wittfield.  I won't post the cards for my class until after the event in late September but I did want to share this month's cards from my class with my lovely lady friends at the assisted living facility. This month we added a few new faces and I think they had a good time.

I especially like the one with the little ice cream cone (from CTMH's new petite perks stamp set - ask me how you can get one.)  It shows how even a single small stamp can be a big part of your project.

In September, we will get started on our Christmas cards.  CTMH has so many great new Christmas stamps and paper that I can hardly wait!

What I am stitching today

There is nothing like posting photos of all (well, most) of my UFO's to motivate me to stitch!  I have worked on Rocky Mountain Christmas, the Mary Smithies repro sampler, and Winter Garden Gate, and my Angel of Healing.  My Angel now has both wings and her face (which is stitched over one) doesn't look quite so scary.  My current stitching project is the Berlin Wool Work Sampler.

Here are some photos showing my progress.  I will post the BWWS progress when I move on to the next UFO since I plan on stitching one small floral and one LARGE floral motif before moving on.
