I began stitching this floral needle case years ago and then I put it down to work on something else. It's high time I finished it though and this time I'm not going to get distracted. The flowers are worked in woven wheel, whipped spider web wheel, buttonhole wheel, lazy daisy and cast on stitching. The leaves are fly and lazy daisy and the centres of the whipped spider web wheels are filled with french knots.

I received this neat pomegranate titled atc from Lin Tarrant who lives in France. She has a wonderful blog at St. Viktor Quilts. Thanks Lin!
I also received this lovely maple leaf postcard from Debi in honour of Canada Day on July 1. Thanks Debi :)
I finally did something I've been wanting to do for the last few years. A breast cancer survivor I had met had gone tandem skydiving and she told me that I just had to go. So on Monday I finally went :)
Here I'm listening intently to the instructions which were to: relax, cross my arms before we jumped out, to take a deep breath and before landing to put my legs up.
At 7,500 feet we had 20 seconds of free fall
WOW - it was quite the awesome experience :D
Wishing everyone a summer adventure plus time for some wonderful stitching :)
