No finishes this week but good progress made on my WIPS. I did start Brunch at Buttonwood Farms.
The yellow of the sunflowers is Squash by Weeks Dye Works. This pattern called for two shades of yellow in the sunflowers but being the lazy stitcher that I am, I looked for a variegated floss so I would not have to change threads constantly. I do think that variegated flosses are perfect for shading the lazy way!
I thought I would show you some of my vintage pieces that hang in my home. I have much more cross stitch at Grimmwood as I was going for country charm there.
This hangs in my kitchen...pardon the glare and reflection. It is a dreary day here and the only way I could get pictures was to turn on the lights! This was stitched back when Charles was Chuck. Does anyone know the designer? I have no clue. Back then I tossed charts or passed them on when I was finished. I saw some cute tags from Lindy Stitches that will be available at Nashville Market. You can write the chart, the date etc on the sticker and place it on the back of framed pieces. I wish I had thought of that! By the way...BAT stands for Bonita Arlene Tankersley, my maiden name. I added the children to the top of the tree by just playing around with spacing etc.
You have seen these before but I love them so here they are again.
Another one that I loved stitching.
I went ahead and got out some of my spring stitches this week.
The return of the Big Bunny!!
I put my Spring and Easter stitches in this tobacco basket and set it on my tea cart.
I left my red bird out....I have to say it is one of my favorite stitches and he will hang around for a while.
I know all of you are looking forward to being able to purchase the new releases from Nashville Market. I am saving my pennies for Market night at Cross Stitch Peddler on the 6th.
