20 for ’20 Goals Update

20 for ’20 Challenge

I read a blog post by one of my fellow stitchers about 19 for 19. 19 for 19 was a challenge she was doing to motivate herself to accomplish specific goals for the year.

SAL Project Peacock Done!

Woohoo!  I can do the happy dance because Mr. Salvador the peacock is complete. The only thing I would like to add to him is possibly some tiny beading to give him a little sparkle before I frame him.

Gardening and Preserving Goals July 25th Update

This summer is the complete opposite of last summer.  Last summer, barely any rain fell, this summer it hasn’t stopped raining for more than two days at a time.
