Moving to Texas

I'll never forget the summer of '98 when we moved to Texas: it was marked by 57 consecutive days of triple-digit temperatures! Thankfully, it's a lot cooler here on the Cape as I begin stitching Denise DeRusha's Texas postcard!

Despite time out for a Father's Day celebration, I've made some progress. I'm continuing with the thread choices made for the Connecticut postcard: navy Petite Very Velvet for the banner and DMC floss #920 for the border. When I started filling in the letters on the banner, I opted to tone down the bright yellow, using DMC floss #729, so the colors of all three postcards will blend together when the project is finished.

Back to stitching--I've got a long way to go!

A good beginning. Last year, it was 100+ every day clear through October in Austin. We have two seasons in Texas - hot, and hotter.

Very nice design and stitching. This will make quite a conversation piece in your son's home.
