August WIPocalypse update

Well, it seems to be a hot humid start to August here in Michigan.  I am so happy I have central air.  :)  I've been working on Joan Elloitt's Phoenix as I watch the Olympics (pic is in my last post).  I'm still backstitching those big tail feathers, but it's getting there.

So, I have some happy dances this month.  First are a couple of things for a friend's baby.
I was supposed to see little Trinity this weekend, but I'm running a slight temp and have a sore throat.  So, no being around little ones for me!  So my mom will deliver the gifts for me.

And a little Halloween stitching.  One is Mill Hill and the other is by The Stitchworks.

And now for WIPS.  Keeping with the Halloween mood, I worked on my needlebook by Fern Ridge Collections.  Hmmm...I seem to be a little stuck on witch hats.

I also worked more on San Man's Sewing Jars.

And a little more on Joan Elliott's Butterfly Cushion.

And last but not least, Nora Corbett's Magnolia.

And speaking of Nora Corbett, I have my August Mirabilia up on the wall.  She's one of my favorites.

And now, I should get off the computer and back to the Phoenix.  :)


  1. Nice job this month. I like the idea of hanging a new piece each month and your August choice is one of my favorites too. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Everything looks great. Love the Halloween piece on the purple fabric!
