I have been working on my “Beloved” piece as the wedding date is approaching soon. The main part of the design is done but I’ve ran out of the red thread, so I’ll have to wait a few days for my order to arrive. Please excuse all the frame marks.
I love all the small motifs on this design, like the crowns, one for him and one for her~ Filling in the white background of the date box was quite a challenge, not fun doing it over one. But I think the most difficult part is yet to come. The outer border is mostly done in swirly back stitch, I hope I will be able to get it done in a timely matter without many mistakes…
To take advantage of free entry during National Park Week, we went to visit Joshua Tree National Park. The weather was soooo nice and we had a lot of fun~ The twisted, spiky Joshua Trees were something straight out of a Dr. Seuss book, and the rock formations in the Park were just amazing!!! Desert flowers were just starting to bloom, I think it would be even more spectacular next weekend!!!
I’m glad that we had a chance to enjoy the sun cause it looks like it’s going to be cloudy all week…. I can’t wait for warmer temperature and more sunny days!!
