So sad that Sampler and Antique Needlework Quarterly magazine has ceased publication with their latest issue. I have a subscription and have just received the latest Fall issue. Have no idea what will happen with prepaid issues I have left on my subscription with them. Will learn soon enough.
So what have I been doing & stitching? I actually finished stitching a beautiful piece& completed it. As it's a gift will get back to you to share with you in November with this.
On a stitching note - I worked on Sojourner.
I completed 4 more bands. Two black & white bands separate the larger motif bands.
The pansy band is done in backstitch & reflects Great Britain, Irish, English, Welsh and Scottish peoples who came to America seeking a new life. The floral rope reflects the nautical history of San Francisco as a major sea port.

Packets of seeds were .02 cents and .05 cents each. What a deal!!!
We had planted some green beans & tomatoes earlier around April or May. All didn't make it due to the heat we've had. Plus what was planted was not from seeds they were plants.
Thank you for stopping by and I am looking forward to decorating for Fall. Just need the heat waves to leave. With my love and appreciation - Annette
