Pineberry Lane Mrs. McGuire's Garden progress

I don't think the white on the tulips stands out too well on my fabric, but I'm going to keep going. I am using the DMC Bright White on this one. We'll see how it goes.

I love this design! Hopefully I'll finish it this time around without casting it aside because I'm not happy with it.

Here's Mr. WitchyStitches making our pool reservations (using my glasses, lol). We were enjoying lunch outside at one of our local eateries, and having a great time. One thing I love is that he uses his phone to connect to our pandora account and we can have some nice jazz while we eat out. It's great. You can't do that indoors!

They have a strict limit and there was only about 15 other people there. We kept our distance, but oh, how good it felt to get some sunshine and be in the water!

We stayed almost the entire allotted time (2 hrs) and returned home with sunkissed faces. It was glorious, after the nightmare spring we've had. I understand why people want to get out, BUT, it must be done safely. And right now, our country is in a mess. A big mess. So this little outing really made me feel a bit better about life in my little bubble.

I saw this post on facebook today and I LOVE IT.


With that in mind, have a great weekend and I hope everyone stitches way too much! Until next time,


  1. You're off to a good start on Mrs. McGuire.
    Maybe use a very light gray & backstitch around the Tulips?
    I love Wendy's designs.
    That pool is so pretty.
    Love the chuckle.
    Have a nice weekend.

    1. Thanks Marilyn! Yep, this pattern is moving pretty quickly! And I may just go ahead with that suggestion about the backstitching. I love the white too much to take it out!

  2. Yea, to that graphic at the end. It is so true. Glad you were able to get out for lunch and time in the pool! Your Pineberry Lane piece is looking good. Have a fabulous weekend, Tammy!

    1. Thank you Robin! I hope you have a great weekend too!

  3. Your progress is lovely! This piece is very pretty! You can stitch the tulips in other colour...or make a extra leg on your x...
    The pool sounds really great!
    Have a great week. Be safe.

    1. Great idea for the extra leg on the flowers! Thank you Lili! You have a great week (almost weekend) too!


Thank you so much! I appreciate all stitchy comments!
