Happy Stitchy Day! I did a lot of stitching at Grimmwood.
I had a finish here at home before we left...
This is one of my older WIPs....I changed this one a bit as well. It had flowers charted on the lawn and under the flag but hey, Molly Pitcher was on the battlefield so I wanted the piece to reflect that. I also stitched her name in red to reflect her stamina and courage in caring for the fallen men of the Revolution. This stitch will be finished as a small pillow so she can join Martha Washington and Abigail Adams in my pewter bowl this summer.
This is my current stitch...Shakespeare's Peddler Teacups. Teresa says stitch it in whatever color you wish so I went with blues. ( Eggplant for the dark blue, Princess Blue for the lighter color and Dove Grey for the silverware) All are Colour and Cotton flosses. It is stitched on Cashel 28 ct Antique White....a piece I got for free at the Retreat! I decided to use three strands of floss and I am really liking that look.
I enjoyed this stitch so much that I purchased the companion pieces.
I will put some thread on these small spools to use as embellishments and I ordered some old keys from KittenStitcher.com to go along with the Key Pillow. These are really quick stitches.
I went by the new Hobby Lobby....well we have had a Hobby Lobby but the business moved to a bigger store. I had been delaying my visit until the new wore off. It has much the same things just more room for buggies and people.
And finally...a surprise giveaway...
