Stitching!

Hello friends!  I finished stitching Mary's half of the Trexler sisters sampler.  I just love the quirky colors and simplicity of this piece.


In the garden we are seeing our first ripe cherry tomatoes.  I am anxious for the Big Boys to ripen so I can enjoy a tomato sandwich!


I have a few days off work so I am hoping to get a little sewing machine time in.  My sewing supervisor says I need to hop to it.


Thank you for visiting.  I hope you are having a wonderful week!

Hi Myra! Great stitching -- looks like a real fun piece. Your "maters" are looking yummy. None of ours are ripe yet, but they are blooming so there is hope. Give your supervisor a little scratch behind the ears from me. Hope you have a nice, long break from work.

Lovely stitching! We don't have any ripe tomatoes yet and it'll probably be a few more weeks before they start turning. Dottie Dog checks them out every time she's in the back yard, lol.

Our tomatoes are not yet ripe but we have three yellow squash and a cucumber so far!! Have to look up the sampler you are doing--not sure I've seen it before. Hugs!

Beautiful, Beautiful, and Cute! Great post, Myra!

A great little stitch! I envy you your tomatoes. It is very hard to grow them here as it is not hot enough unless you have a green house.

Marilyn said...

Great start on your project.
The tomaters look good!
Betty is so cute. :)

Hi - have been enjoying your blog for a little while now. Love tomato sandwiches - we are quite away from that here in New Hampshire. Your stitching supervisor doesn't look like she wants to "hop" anywhere!! Thanks for your blog.

I've had one, small tomato - biscuit sized :-) Cukes are on the way, too! Enjoy your stitching time.

Kay said...

Your sewing supervisor is beautiful!!

I'll bet Betty is quite the task master, isn't she, Myra? Ha ha!! So glad you have a few days off to relax and get back to your sewing machine... Your current WIP is so cute--glad you're enjoying it. And my, your tomatoes are way ahead of ours... We have just a few green ones appearing now. Everything seems very late due to our rainy June.

Hope you have a relaxing 4th of July weekend--enjoy!

your stitching looks great!

I love the title of this post, just the word Stitching and then the exclamation mark, which does the trick, lol. And yes, there's some great stitching to see in this post. A great sampler you started.

Enjoy the tomatoes. The best tomatoes always come from your own garden.

What time are we having 'mater sammiches?? Yummo! Nothing like fresh from the garden.... Oh, and I love your stitches too!!! Be safe~

Penny said...

There is nothing better than a tomato sandwich made from tomatoes fresh from the garden. Lovely stitches! And that looks like one tough supervisor. :)

Sharon said...

What a fun stitch! Whimsical comes to mind. :)
Your tomato pics have my mouth watering...nothing more tasty than a tomato fresh out of the garden.
Your fur baby looks all settled into her forever home...oh that we all should be so comfy!

Sally said...

What a wonderful WIP. Seems ages since I last visited your blog. I hope you're well.

Those tomatoes look delicious. I miss having fresh tomatoes as my Dad always grew them.

Hi Myra,
I am back! :)
Hope you are doing well.
I have missed you. :(
I see you have been really busy with your gardening. Love all the delicious things you have harvested and those container houses/gardens are really cute. Love them.
If you have a chance please stop by my blog. I have uploaded some Geisha lady tags. Please leave a comment.
Hugs and happy weekend.

Oh Myra,
So nice to see you back! Sorry to hear you are having issues with your elbow.
Happy that you can at least sew for now. Those wallets are lovely. :)
I sent you something for your birthday. Did you get it?

Hugs and sending healing hugs your way!

Myra, the tomatoes are really attractive ripe vegetables in your garden! Besides, thank you for presenting the wallets of yours - they are wonderful!
