Mr. and Mrs. Phebe

I was having dinner with a good friend last night, and she reminded me that I hadn't posted on my blog since June 11.  Not much has been going on here.  I had been sorting through things and shoving boxes and containers around.  When things are too heavy to lift, I tend to shove with my knees.  And, I ended up injuring one of my knees (my non-replacement knee).   It hurt to drive and to go up and down stairs (where my sewing room is), so there hasn't been a lot of sewing going on here.  The Dr. gave me a shot of some good medicine in the knee, and it is much, much better now.

I've pulled out my Phebe center and have been working on her again.  I've got to tell you, I have a lot of respect for anyone that has done these two little people that sit on either side of this vase.  Those pieces are really small.   I had the vase and stems done on another background and decided I didn't like it, so I've started over.  This is my progress so far.

These are two of the stars that go on the inner star border.  I chose the fabrics and made these about a month apart.  Looks like I really like these fabrics since I picked them out twice.  I've been cutting kits for the rest of the stars.
I'm heading out of town today to see two of my Aunts.  One is 101- the oldest resident of Fulton County, Indiana.  The other was 95 and just passed away, so I'm heading there to be with my cousins.

Hope you are finding some time to stitch today!
