Sunflowers have Arrived

Today on Thursday

I hope you are having a great Thursday. It has been a busy week. Our internet has been on and off for almost a week. They guy just left and I have speedy internet again. Yay!!! It is just no fun when you try to load a page and I can go clean a room and get back and the page hasn't loaded and I have forgot what to say, or leave a comment and my comment window just sits there.
But with computer problems and internet problems, I hope I am back for awhile. Though I am not getting my hopes up yet.

I finished my July Word play before July. I finished it on Sunday, but it has taken me this long to show you a picture. I don't know if I am getting faster or it was that I had so much fun with this one.

I loved the little tiny crab. I just sat and chuckled to myself as each one turned into something tiny that you would see at the beach.
The tiny little mermaid was fun too.
I have learned so much doing these Word Plays once a month. I need to sign up for a once a month block next year for quilting. It has helped me to stay focused on other projects.

Well, internet just died again and had to be restarted while I was doing this post. I guess it's not fixed.
I will get around when I can.

Bye for now,


  1. Your project is lovely. I can see why you had fun with it.

    I hope your computer problems get solved quickly.

  2. Sorry about your bad luck with the internet-that is so aggravating.
    Sweet cross-stitch, just in time for the holidays. The local museum lady has a program that converts photos to cross-stitch-it is so life like. I think you would like it!

  3. glad you were able to post. i know that makes for a frustrating (and cut-off) day. :)

  4. Sorry you're having internet problems. No fun. Your word play stitchery piece is adorable :)

  5. Oooooooh! Just LOVE the July Word Play! You stitched AND finished it up quick! :-)

  6. I love all the closeups of the July word play. You've done such a wonderful job stitching that up! I have a pile of cross-stitch waiting for me to dive in. But, I just started a large rug...so I'm hooking away.

  7. Darling handiwork!

    I love your sunflowers too!!

    Sorry about you having internet problems.
    Someone should feed those hamsters~~~LOL!

    Oh.... maybe that's just me... in our little tiny town, I swear there's hamsters spinning on their little wheels making everything work... slowly~~LOL!

    Have a great day, and stay cool.

  8. Your stitching is fine, just like YOU!
    Grrrrr. I hope the Internet is fixed soon, Kim.
    I sure need to clean a room or six. You are my inspiration!

  9. You do so many neat things!
    Maybe if my internet would go down (please no!!) I would get some work done in my kitchen! :)

  10. Well, it's Friday by the time I read this, so Happy Friday. It's sunny so no craft stuff for me today. The stitchery turned out perfect, as usual. I'm waiting to see next months, maybe I will try one.

  11. Your quilts/crafts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!
    Hugs, Ulla (from Finland)

  12. That's such a cute little word play! I think I like that one the best so far. I'm glad you got to update your blog, even if the internet is flaky. Maybe it'll behave a little better now?

  13. That crab is adorable! I can't believe you finished it before July!

  14. Sorry about your internet problems...so frustrating! I like the crab, too! Amazing that you got it done so early. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  15. That is a piece of lovely needlework! I've never been one for doing much of that, and I admire your work.

    We recently changed to wireless for our Internet. So far, so good.

    Yes, it is really unseasonably hot here, 20 degrees warmer than our usual high temperatures. We are staying in to stay cool and drinking lots of water, anyway.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog.:-)

  16. Look at your sunflowers!!!! Gorgeous! Mine are still blooming and I'm loving them so much. They bring me such joy! That little crab is my favorite part of the July pillow! He's so cute!

  17. internet woes, no fun at all!
    I love your finish, that's so cute!

  18. Hope you get your internet fixed once and for all. I've been busy doing non-internet stuff (quilting, puzzle, reading), that I've fallen behind on blogreading. It's one thing to be behind because of my own choice/too busy to be online ... another to be behind because of internet troubles and you want to be online.

  19. Sorry about your internet problems, Kim, I had a few problems a couple a weeks ago! Your cross stitch is so lovely, I keep telling myself, that I am going to get back to cross stitching, but just can't seem to find the time, we have been so busy this week finishing some projects that were started months ago, and that is such a great feeling. Our temps. are so high we are breaking all kinds of records.
    Enjoy your weekend.

  20. I don't know Kim, I think this one is my favorite. You do nice needle work. I know I say that a lot but you really have a knack for crafts.

  21. Sorry, I'm so late visiting. Your sunflowers are just so beautiful and so is you cross stitch. I love the close up too so we can really see the little details.

    I hope that your weekend is sunny but not too hot. We've had so much rain here. I only got half of my back lawn mowed and had to go to the barn and when I got back it was pouring rain again. Oh well, it's a good thing that I'm not made of sugar. Hugs. JB
