Sweet as Pie Cross Stitch: July 2017

I thought I was taking a break from yearlong cross stitch projects, but those sneaky Frosted Pumpkins caught me at a weak moment by debuting a new mystery SAL during my birthday month… and the thought of chronicling my 30th year with adorable kawaii pies was too cute to resist! So here I am again with a monthly update on my progress.

You can check out my completed yearlong cross stitch projects here:

Pumpkin Passport in 2016

The pie released in July is blueberry pie! Yum… blueberries are pure summer and I loved stitching with these colors. As usual, the pie stitched up quickly and I had time to work on the frame around this quadrant. I also added the little mixing bowl and stand mixer. This SAL is like a beachy chick lit read, a breath of fresh air in between other projects.

I picked up some blueberries at the local farmers market last weekend, and I had all the ingredients on hand, so as I came to a stopping point with the cross stitch yesterday, I couldn’t resist making the blueberry pie too!
