Summer Stitching Continues

I managed to get a good portion of the verse stitched on Summer Snapperland over the last couple of days. Last night I noticed I was off by two threads which I'm not particularly worried about (nor particularly surprised about, haha!) since nothing looks too goofy. Still, the perfectionist in me is going to want to know where the mistake is! Normally I hate stitching letter after letter after letter but whether it's the thread or the linen or a combination of both this has been smoothy smooth. (We just have to ignore the fact that I got lulled into missing a stitch somewhere!)
I ordered the threads I need for Joyful Summer so I'll get super busy on that one as soon as they arrive. In the meantime I've been plugging along with what I have which translates to "I stitched a leaf". It's all progress though, right? And it's such a lovely leaf I just had to show everyone!

Tonight we are making stuffed bread for dinner (stuffings to be determined!) which is one of my favorites. We've been making them for years as a way to creatively use up all the bits of this and that in the fridge. There's no right or wrong when it comes to wrapping up a bunch of leftovers in bread dough! Teriyaki chicken with bacon and smoked mozzarella? Delicious!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Wednesday and finding time to do something fun! Thanks for stopping by!

I really like your Snapperland piece, and I couldn't see where you were off - LOL!! Your dinner sounds really neat.
