I am back from beaching it. I took my eggs to basketweave when I was not riding the waves. I am basketweaving with two strands of Bella Lusso. It is my favorite wool. To me it's like Medici but a little finer.

At the request of a viewer, I have put all the progress on the White Farm in one post. I am really enjoying this piece. More to come soon!

I bought Glinda the Good Witch quite some time ago. This is from the Wild Women series by Melissa Shirley. I got a good start on her but realized I would never finish her. I gave her to one of my fellow SWANs who is going to finish it for her darling granddaughter.

I bought this trio of eggs with the birthday gift certificate that I received from the SWANs. I was planning on packing it up to take to the beach but as always I went ahead and started. In my defense I needed something to basketweave while watching the French Open. I need to add a pic of the gussets that come with it. These will be three dimensional eggs when finished. So cute!

I pooped out before I completely finished this section. I do have enough thread and hope to get it finished after work today. I hope I can also "lay" the foundation of the barn tonight as well. Keep your fingers crossed. At this rate, I might finish this in 2017!

I found this stitch, Plaited Gobelin, in one of my Stitches for Effect books. I also found the perfect thread. It's Wildflowers in Seaweed. The perfect combo color. I stole it from another project bag so I hope I have enough! I finished the wall in front of the house this morning. I am going to do some cooking and then settle down to "plant" some more grass.

I am moving along building the White Farm. I am stitching the wall in front of the house with three strands of overdyed floss using the Alternating Smyrna stitch. Looks good to me! Thank you again, Amy Bunger!
