Gathering Honey Garden "Growing"


I'm making progress on my cross stitch WIP, Gathering Honey. The lower right corner of the garden is "planted" , I mean to say, stitched. I also backstitched that area because it would have been too tedious to go back later. I haven't backstitched the stones or hive yet. I am enjoying this project so far. I get to use a lot of my favorite colors, which is nice, and there are lots of color changes so I haven't gotten burned out on any one particular shade. I tried to keep up with my time (even bought a timer), but I've failed at it miserably so far. I'll try to do better.

Thursday, I registered DS/8 for 3rd grade (school starts Aug. 15th). It's hard to believe his summer break is almost over! He took some beginner swim lessons this week and started practices for soccer.

We've had a busy few days with DH's music schedule, also. Thursday night he played at Rum Boogie Cafe and Friday night he played at B.B. Kings on Beale Street. Both shows went great and the crowds responded well to the music. This Wednesday, he'll be playing at Court Square for the Summer Concert Series.

Gathering Honey is looking great.

My DD is going to be a 3rd grader this year too. We start back on September 7, though so I have another month til then.

This is one of my all time favorite designs. I stitched it when it first appeared on the cover of CS and CC magazine. I saw your post on the Chatelaine site.
I live in middle TN and am working on my first Chatelaine design. I usually lurk, but when I saw this design in progress wanted to comment; you've made great progress. I love it. viv
