FREEZING IN SEATTLE

While most of you are melting, I am freezing. I forgot my jacket (yes, some of you told me to bring one) so we had to go buy one and some enclosed shoes.....poor me. HA!! We all know that I am an island girl and would rather be hot than cold.

Well...I finished this stitchery...(remember I am traveling so it is wrinkled)




I am working on this....



I found the most amazing site, if you want to improve your embroidery skills go here to Helens, I found her through BubzRugz Thanks so much Fiona for this awesome link. I hope some of you go to Hugs from Helen, She is teaching how to do stems right now....can't wait to get home and get going on it.

You should come to Los Angeles. So far we have had a wonderful summer. I hope I didn't jinx myself.

I heard that Washington state is on the gray side. Only 73 here in Long Beach at 2:00 pm today. I'm OK with that actually.

Mary said...

Your stitcheries are lovely. Did check out Helens about the stem stitch. Good information.

JustCindy said...

Oh to need a jacket and closed toe shoes. I'm green with envy. The stitcheries are adorable.

Guess I should have warned you, I just read an article about Seattle's weather...they've had about 28 minutes of degrees in the 80's this summer. Everything else had been in the 60's and some 70's! Come to this side of the mountains...it's a bit warmer...no jackets required except in the evenings.You'll warm up in Moses Lake.

Love the stitchery patterns...you are so good!

Hope it warms up soon - I got caught out in the pouring torrential rain in London yesterday (picture wading through a river) and had to throw out my shoes and buy a new pair of jeans! Come on summer!

I'm going to go check out that blog. I was doing a little embroidery last night and since I do it so seldom I had to tear parts out :0)

Barbara said...

Great progress on the stitching! I don't feel sorry for you needing a jacket since it will be in the hundreds today in south Jersey. Cooler sounds great to me! ;)

98 degrees and humid here... and I prefer cross-country skiing weather. Yup... I'm jealous... Prayers for your friend's daughter. And I love your colorful quilts!

andsewon said...

LynCC said...

Wow, Barb - it's not freezing here. How about I fan some air back that way? ;D

Royce said...

Oh how I wish you could ship me some cold. Love your embroidery.

As my Mama always said: "When it is cold you can always put on more clothes, but when it is hot there is a limit to how much of your clothes you can take off!" We're traveling too and we nice and cool while in CA , ID & OR. Then we entered Montana and it got hot. We're in SD now and it is still hot. Tomorrow we leave for ND, so I hope it is cooler there. We just can't take the heat!

Rhonda said...

it's been freezing just north of Seattle too!

love the stitcheries; thanx for posting that link.
