Background! Background! Background!

I have never thought of myself as a pink person, but it was the soft pink I choose as background for my "Stitch for a Cure" cancer ribbon pillow.  What is it they say?
"Never say never!"
So over the past few weeks I have started filling in the background.  Although stitching with knitting wool is quite different than tapestry wool, I am very pleased with the result. 
I could have had the background done by now, were it not for the high temperatures we had over the past week.  When handling wool while it's HOT, my hands feel sweaty and my internal temparture goes way up!!   I can stand it for only about an hour (after the sun has gone down, of course), so it has been a slow process.

But my time has not been waisted.  I've have been working on my "Palm Tree" sampler design, the 5th tree in my Tree Sampler series, and it's all done.  I love it!! It looks great.  Now I just have to stitch it.  If all goes well, I should be able to release it by August.
