- Strolling down memory lane

Retrospective (9/26)

Patch #261 Coat of many colors


Original Post

I managed to get four patches done today ... 


and enjoyed reliving our recent trip to St. Louis as I stitched.

The first patch hailed back to September 1st (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2016/09/driven.html) and as I stitched it I thought how nice it would be if the interstate system actually provided a straight shot from here to there ...


No such luck!

The second patch for Semptember 2nd (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2016/09/what-we-do.html) was a take on the letters that Don painted for the playroom before Jace was even born ...


How do I not have a picture of that?

Speaking of Jace being born, September 3rd was his second birthday (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2016/09/happy-birthday-jace.html), so I used this awesome new thrift store find ...


to make a patch celebrating Jace's lightning fast feet ...


And the September 4th patch (http://imgoingtotexas.blogspot.com/2016/09/repurposeful.html) reminded me yet again how impossibly hard it is to stitch through sheeting ...


I also got the weather patches caught up ...


and decided to close down One Hill Country Year ... again. I'm sure it will be back someday, but the ideal format still eludes me.
