WIPocalypse #7: still no WIPs as I am now a hooker :)

I hope everyone in the States had a safe and happy July's another holiday I have to prop open my eyes for, as I was never a late-night person, even less so in my old age.
Anyway, stitching has taken a back seat at the moment, because thanks to some terrific YouTube videos I can now do this...

Not well, mind you.  But I do enjoy it.  Very addictive.

I still do enjoy stitching.  Not enough to work on my WIPS, but I did participate in another two exchanges, one of which at least I am able to show, and did a few small patriotic pieces.  This one was part of a freebie from Liberty Primitives.  Every once in a while I get the urge to do something with performated paper.  I think this one turned out well.

This is from the "My Favourite Things" round of the Stitched With Love exchanges.  The top photo is what I received from Dawn.  The cute pillow is from a design by Homespun Elegance, and Dawn included some homemade counting pins and dishcloth, which I think contributed to my current crochet obsession.  Thank you Dawn!

The design I sent to my partner Cherise was from a web freebie which I had in my stash for a long time.  Unfortunately I could not find the name of the designer.  This was not something that I would ordinarily stitch but I think it came out well.

That's about all for now.  I am off to embark on a baby blanket project for my new niece, and maybe pick up my neglected stitching one of these days...
