Marvin headed to Georgia last weekend as the grass at Grimmwood was out of control. He spent two days there just getting everything in order. My sister, Leta, has been taking some time to clean out closets. She found six pieces of 14 count Aida in her closet. It was in bags so I was afraid the fold lines might be set in but I washed them in the washing machine then gave them a coffee bath. I did not have any tea to add to it and I must say I was pleased with the coffee only dye. They ironed up beautifully and I have some stash for quarantine project stitching. Thanks Sis for the pass the stash.
Here is my pile of fabric. I will not bore you showing you each piece but they all came out remarkably similar so this is a good representation. I use the Priscilla method which you can find on her You Tube Channel. She recently added a Rit dye tutorial and I would like to try that as well.
Leta also sent me two more pieces that I will FFO for Grimmwood.
If anyone would like either of these two charts, I have them as well. Just send me an email at agrimm55.hotmail.com First come First served!
When I went to the mailbox on Wednesday I had some happy mail from Sandy.
The Blue Bird Sampler and a beautiful leopard print face mask. I will be stylish in public should I have to go out!! Sandy and I like to pass the stash so here is another giveaway!
Answer the question....what is your favorite bird? I have now stitched Ye Olde Crow, Tom Turkey and Red Bird . Blue Bird will be added to my list of Heart in Hand Bird Stitches.
Now to my stitching this week.
I spent a lot of time on Two White Houses by Little House. I did change the alphabet as I wanted to do my initials in orange. I also left off the nosegay in the second line to add the year. Another corona stitch that I will always remember!!
Susan's candle mat is coming along as well.
This is a much quicker stitch than I thought it would be.
I spent an afternoon working on Penny Pumpkin by Scarlett House while watching a movie with Marvin. I have always enjoyed Fall stitching. Those pretty colors speak to me.
Lots of Floss Tubers and Instagrammers were doing a Quarantine O Ween on March 31st. I thought I would share some of the charts I have in my September October Stitching Folder in my Stash Box.
I think I have enough to chose from for fall stitching.
But my new start will be....
Happy Stitching Friends.
