|Linen and Threads Mystery SAL - August 19|
I am thinking that if I can focus on stitching this piece I might even be able to get the rest of it done before the end of this coming weekend if work and everything else allows for it.

My goal before the end of this month is to have a few rows of July done and that means that I am slowly getting caught up on the piece and that does make me feel a little better.
Coffee Quaker - This piece is my Heartstring Sampler and I have to admit that as soon as I saw it I wanted to stitch it. I quickly got the fabric to use on the piece as it is a light beige/brown and it then sat for a few months until this weekend when I finally decided that it was time to at least get it started.

The first goal that I had was to get all of the words stitched and that meant getting at least one motif also completed so that I knew where the last row of words would go without having to do a lot of counting.
I hope to be able to work on this project one motif at a time and I will be stitching this piece a second time as it is going to be for my sister. We are both coffee lovers and get that from our mom. I am also using some of the floss that my mom gave me so we both going to have a project using mom's floss or at least some of the floss. I will be adding the rest of the floss that is needed for the project.

What is nice is I can see the different colours and sometimes I even remember the projects that I did to get all of a certain colour. The ornament that is filled with a lot of red is from the two projects that I did early last year for Canada. I can then look and see that all the other projects that I worked on last year are now put into different ornaments and that makes me feel great.
I do have some other projects that I have been working on and I am getting closer to get them done. Some of the projects will be going up on ETSY once they are all done so that is why I haven't shown any pictures yet. I figure that I am going to take all the pictures at once and then will have something to show.
This week I am not sure how much time I will have to stitch but I hope to be able to at least spend some time on both Temperature and Mystery SAL. I know that I have a long list of things to complete for work so that is what needs to get first and then I will see what time I have to craft in the evenings.
