St. Croix River overflow.
There is a lot of water in the overflow for mid summer.
It is haying time for the farmers. Hard work for them when it has been so blasted hot.
|I know they don't do this for me to enjoy. However, haying season brings back good memories. As a teen friends and myself would go into the field and throw the square bales onto the truck. We got paid in gasoline for the car and cigarettes.|
My latest creation. HOH yesterday. This was way, way out of my comfort zone. I made stitches that I have never heard of. I ripped out more times than I can count. And, I think everyday I was thinking of hanging it up. I persevered and finished. I am so glad I did. Just ignore the cat. She thought I had placed it on the floor for her morning nap.
|The pattern was the 6 blocks of three different patterns. I wanted to show you the individual patterns.|
The one above is almost entirely of puff stitches. It started out round.
This one is really just crocheting, but stitching over and under previous stitches.
This one took the longest and gave me the most grief. But, it is my favorite. It started round and after the sunburst was made it got squared up.
