|Lace Traces~Vividly Violet|
It took too long to finish this model. But considering I had to stop mid-stitch twice to finish a couple of other projects for a magazine I am not going to be too tough on myself and be happy to see it turned out just the way I hoped it would.😊
It is my plan to use the four models from this series to create a wall hanging. Though I've had more requests for submissions to magazines so it may take longer than planned to put them together.
'Vividly Violet' is for sale on my website and will soon be available through Creative Poppy and Everything Cross Stitch
Life on Gracewood in May and June is usually busy but beautiful and this year with all the blessed rain everything is so green and lush it is hard to stop looking at it all! Terry is busy putting our garden in place and already getting firewood for next winter, since this last really cold snowy one consumed last year's stock.
Here are a few photos to share this lovely time with you -

|You may remember the special doe we named 'Baby' since she visited us on her own at a very early age? Well Baby is getting ready to have her own baby as you can see.|
May your June be as beautiful as ours has been!
