|Roses - July 1|
|Roses - July 4|
I have to admit that it has felt odd not working on Roses each day, but I have also been able to enjoy working on some of the other projects that I wanted to get worked on, so that is what I have been doing.

The other advantage of working on this piece is I was able to figure out a method of getting the border done quickly, and that is good considering another project that I am doing. The red and white around the entire piece was what I wanted to figure out how to get it done easily, and while doing this piece, I have now figured out an easy method of doing it. I decided that I would try doing both the colours at once, so that is what I did, and now I will be doing it again on another piece.

I restarted this piece yesterday and have been working on getting around the entire outside of it. The final piece will fit into a 13"x19" frame with about .75" around this border, so there is a lot of work involved in getting this piece finished. The border on this piece is similar to the border on Mikros, so that is why I enjoyed figured out how to get it done on a smaller version.
This project is a mystery stitch along, and I am looking forward to seeing what it looks like once I have it all finished, but that won't be for a while as the last part of the design isn't released until the middle of November.
I have been working on a lot of other things besides my stitching but have enjoyed stitching some evenings even with the heat that we have had in the last week. I hope that things are a little cooler this week as it makes it hard to work when it is so hot out.
I now have some things that I need to get done and hope that I can find time some evenings to do the things that I enjoy doing. Hope everyone has a great week and hope you can also find a bit of time each day to do something that you love doing.
