And Ta DA....
I finished Blue Bird. I was going to stitch it on my Aida but changed my mind when I found this scrap of Colour and Cotton in my stash. I think it is lovely. I will have to wait until Hobby Lobby or Patches and Stitches open up to find a coordinating fabric. I looked through my stash but nothing really did it justice. This is stitched on 32 count ...one over two. Thanks Sandy for passing the stash. I will be passing this one on to a friend who I think would love it.
I also completed a Christmas ornament.
The true color is not really coming through well in this photo. I did use some retro 1950s colors...a flamingo pink and a mint green. I love the way it turned out. I may do a few more of these for gifts. This is from Little House Needleworks, appropriately named Christmas Cookies.
A little patriotic stitching was done this week.
I had happy mail from 123 Stitch. I received my fabric and flosses for Alas and Did My Savior Bleed by Lindy Stitches.
I had to start it as I love that font. I did change the flosses. Where you see gold a the end of Cherry Wine flowers, I used Harvest basket instead of the called for black. I am using the Emerald Green for the lettering instead of using the brown that was charted. I am stitching this one on linen. So I have to be careful where I put that needle. The slubs always make me bothered as it can sometimes change the way the stitches appear to the viewer. I really prefer even weave. This is going to be a pretty stitch. Cant wait to finish it as Stephanie showed hers on her latest floss tube. Check it out at Lindy Stitches.
My last stitch for this week is September Word Play. Oh the joy of stitching on 28 count even weave
after stitching on 32 and 36 count fabrics. It is a rest for the eyes and the brain.
I had to put in an order at Fat Quarter Shop this week for some flosses. I ordered Priscilla's Christmas Floss Pack as I plan to do a good bit of Christmas stitching. And believe it or not, I was running out of white and black. I sure hope Hobby Lobby will be open in May. I need some Floss!!
Happy Stitching Dear Friends.
