June Blooms

In May, I tried to get myself back on track by making these goals:
  • Finish (and frame) the babies' birth samplers for their birthday next month. I finished both, even though I had to almost completely restitch one. They are with the framer.
  • Knit the damn baby dresses. Yeah, not so much. I resolved today as I walked by the knitting store where I took the class to go discuss this with the shop owner. She's away until next week, but I'm thinking maybe we can use the yarn for baby sweaters?
  • Entertain my MIL while she visits. We had a great visit and really miss her since she left!
I also finished a small! Yay, back on track. 

And there was gardening.


For June:
  • Work on anniversary sampler
  • Allium schubertii
  • Work on small
Yeah, let's start there and see how we do...

The allium look like something from outer space. I stitch less and garden more this time of year.

Well done on the samplers goal. If you decide on sweater they won't need them until the cooler weather so you have more time!

Congrats on getting 2/3 done and wrapped up!

Congratulations on getting the baby samplers finished and off to the framers! Yay, a small finish! I am glad that your visit with your MIL was a successful.

Hooray for meeting goals and making new ones :) (I confess to rarely meeting my own stitchy goals, other things are always interrupting me)

I don't think I've ever seen an allium schubertii before, very interesting flower you have there!
