June FMQ

I am late I know but I wanted to post my FMQ for the month of June , thanks to Sew Cal Gal for hosting this each month and providing us with such amazing teachers. This month it was Cindy Needham , she gave a great tutorial which was very helpful and although my stitching is far from perfect I think I got what this lesson was trying to teach us , control , I enjoyed the process and am ok with my results but realize that they could be so ..... much better with practice.
Here is a close up of the top section where I tried to fill in the small areas , challenging for sure but kind of fun too. I know I am brave to even show you these very imperfect stitches but this is all about learning right ;-)

 It is a hot summer day today , the warmest so far this season , I won't complain as we have been waiting a long time for this to happen . Thanks for stopping by and hope you are enjoying your weekend.
hugs Sheila
