Putting Together

I worked on the round robin project from Barbara Jackson yesterday. I used her Pearsall's silk floss and yes, it caught on everything. ARGH. When I got to the back and my initials, I decided to not worry about what it was going to look like and just do what colors I felt like. I have a book of initials called "Monogram Album" that I got from Elegant Stitch. I found a size to fit and even put a crown on top. I love crowns. I am kind of an Anglophile. It isn't really centered well, as the crown will bend over the edge when it is all put together. I am in the process of sewing it together. I thought it was a needlebook but it isn't. It is a pin cushion.
I have had a break from the over one and now feel like I can go back to it for a while. So I plan to work on the English Tapestry Sewing Box today.
I saw the front of Just Cross Stitch's Ornament issue and it looks really good. I know it doesn't come out until September. It is fun to see the new charts coming out in conjunction with the Baltimore show. Although right now, my plate is full.
Our humidity is way down and it is so much more comfortable. We have turned off the air conditioning and opened the windows. It's glorious.
