TAST 2018 and TUSAL 2018

I've been keeping up with the stitches. Not hard as my sampler isn't that big. Some of these stitches I will never do again...ever...LOL  I'm right handed but I was taught to sew left handed so sometimes it's hard trying to get my head and hands sorted out. A few beads need to be added too to tart it up a bit.

The Full Moon in July is the Buck Moon, named after the new antlers that emerge from the  foreheads of male deer around this time of the year. It is also called Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, and Wort Moon.

It should be called the Weed Moon this year as it so dry the only plant life that seems to be thriving are weeds. No one is cutting their lawn as the grass is dead for now. Once it rains it will revive. As a result everyone seems to have a lot of Queen Anne's Lace, Bellflowers and Wild Chicory in their gardens. Even along the roads where there are grassy areas. I don't mind as it means the wildflowers are starting to come back now the city stopped spraying weed killer along the road verges. Some call them weeds but I guess it's really a point of view. It's been years since I saw so much Wild Chicory...usually only way up north.

 Well since it is a full moon today and therefore TUSAL time here is my ORT jar...lots of colours.

Take care:)


  1. I love chicory. The color is just amazing. I keep threatening to grab some off the side of the road and put it in my garden.

    I love your stitches! It reminds me of my calligraphy practice sheets...all those lovely individual stitches, done with care....

  2. I, too, love chicory - probably because they're blue and blue flowers are relatively rare. And what's not to like about Queen Anne's Lace and Bellflowers - both are beautiful flowers. Your sampler is looking wonderful - it's a perfect way to sample the stitches into an interesting format. I like it!!

  3. Lin I'm with you. I love that blue colour :)


If you leave a comment and I don't respond it's because I didn't get an email notice. I don't know why this happens and I apologize in advance as I love to hear from you:)
