A Little on the Funky Side......(168)

Today's Stroll piece is a little bit of a departure from my usual stitching, but when I saw this chart years ago, I fell in love with the bright colors and fun just makes me smile!!! The design is Holiday Seasons by Birds of a Feather and I stitched it in 2004. There were four different designs, one for each season, and I'm showing Summer today. I stitched it on Birds of a Feather fabric (I sure do miss those fabric colors) in called for fibers. They were all mounted separately then put in a frame that had four individual openings ( I bought it like that). I'll share the other seasons at their respective time of year.

I spent yesterday afternoon in the A/C and got week 9 of my SAL done.

Then in the evening I worked on my All About Smalls Challenge piece while watching The Great British Baking Show. I love that show, but it doesn't help much when I'm trying to cut back on sweets. I'm pretty much salivating like a Pavlovian dog the whole time I'm watching.....baked goods are definitely my Achilles heel! I must hold firm....I must hold firm!!!


 Please stay cool and thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Very cool summer piece! I like the frame very much. You are making good progress on your challenge piece and well done on cranking out week 9 of the SAL piece. Where did you get the banding, Stasi? Enjoy your day and stay cool and hydrated!

  2. Oh that is fun and cute! Beach is looking great. Sweets are my downfall too.

  3. Lovely stitching Stasi. I'm particularly interested in how the beach one turns out. I really love that one. Hand up for another sweet lover here too. RJ @stitching friends forever

  4. Stasi, The Birds of a Feather is such a fun piece. Great progress on the smalls. At least your not tempted to bake in the heat!!
