I had one finish this week....
It is small but it is a finish!! Now to fully finish it. I used Grits for the bunny. I had it in my stash and I think it looks more like a bunny color than the stark white. It has just a hint of beige in it. You can see it better in person. This is from Prairie Schooler. I also changed the Bunny's shirt to a pastel color instead of the primary colors used on the chart. The grass is Color and Cotton and I love the bright green variegation.
Now for a piece I kitted up....
Where else but on a Stitching post does a dear fellow stitcher find the pattern you were looking for and sends you a link to it? Thanks RJ!! I used the fabric from my stash. I thought it would be cute on the blue and I will leave off the blue stitching on the pattern. I did go to Cross Stitch Peddler to get a variegated floss for the Sunflowers. I thought that would perk it up. Of course, I do not have the color right here as I am writing this post but I will try to note the colors as I work on it. By the way...you can find this chart on ETSY if you are interested.
I also kitted up my gift project but I cannot show that one to you.:)
Now for a WIP parade....
May by Prairie Schooler. I am working on the lambs now and the green grass of the pasture. I always leave off the border at the bottom of the month pieces. I just do not think they add a lot to the piece and are mainly filler. May is my birthday month so that is why I am working on it, hoping to complete it by my birthday.
A little more done on God Save the Queen by Kitten Stitcher. I am going to fill in her dress tomorrow while I am at the North Alabama Stitchers meeting. I find it is better to do the boring fill in work when you are gabbing with other stitchers.
Oh Say Can you Sea by Hands on Design. This will be a drum. I am using colors from my stash instead of the called for colors. I have so many pretty fancy flosses and I intend to use a lot of them up this year.
I finally got that house built so I am hoping the rest of the project will be done quickly. I love my patriotic ladies.
Confession time...the last time you saw this piece I was working it on a dark blue. Well I was fussing and fuming so I decided to just scrap it before I got too far along and I am using a piece of my own coffee/tea died fabric. I am not sure how it will turn out but I am enjoying it once again. I will have to decide what to do with the windows as with the darker fabric it just looks like the lights are out. I love Prairie Schooler for their simple designs and use of few floss colors.
Here is Easter Parade by Brenda Gervais of With thy Needle and Thread. I think I might make this one into a Wreath. Java Stitcher on You Tube made a wreath from a Brenda Gervais piece and it was so cute. I am not using the called for colors but again using up my fancy floss. I love the variegation in the chick.
I am pleased with my progress with these pieces. I try to work on one piece each day unless I just cannot put it down! I find it does keep me from being bored and my stitches are neater because I tend to take my time and enjoy stitching on each piece.
Happy Stitching all my Thread Head friends.
