Well no photos today as we are off to Grimmwood for a few days. So I thought I would do a Stitching Stream.
1. I lost my mind and ordered G Legere. Not familiar with it? Google it. I have seen several ladies working on this one and it just spoke to me. A reddish pink house and pears...two of my favorite things. I will be stitching it using DMC. I was looking at the list of silk flosses and if I purchased them all I would have spent $200. Yikes!! I am working on finding the perfect fabric for it.
2. It looks like most LNS 's are open once more. I am glad to see them back up and at em. However many shop owners report they were quite busy with mail order and curbside business.
3. I am trying to decide if I will take Kringles to Grimmwood as my road stitch. I have not touched it since I put in a bit of the roof. A stitcher on Instagram recently posted a photograph of her completed project. I would like to say it inspired me but it did not.:)
4. How many of you are planning to do Jolly July this year with Chelsea and Priscilla? I plan to work on several Christmas ornaments along with the grands ornaments. I would like to complete all the grands ornaments so that I can move on to Fully Finishing them. Hobby Lobby is rapidly stocking its Christmas craft area.
5. All of my giveaway winners have received their goodies and while going through my stash I found a cute autumnal chart that I plan to pass on. Be on the look out for that giveaway. It was an impulse buy and while I still like it, I have to tell myself that I have a LOT of Fall Stitches that are fully finished and come out each year. What season is best represented in your stitching? I really need to work on some late winter and spring pieces.
6. My cousin, Dewilla, introduced me to a new floss tube channel, Stitch Roadie. Anna is about my age and still stitching up a storm. Another older Floss Tuber I enjoy is Stitching by the Lake, Marlene Bush. Maybe I should say Seasoned Stitcher instead of older stitcher. Speaking of Dewilla, she is my husband's first cousin but we have been friends since we met in 1975. She has recently taken up cross stitch again and she is kitting up Shakespeare's Fairies. ( I hope I got that name right) It is beautiful, I admire the ladies who stitch the Mirabelias and Nora Corbett designs. She just retired after many years as an educator so she has time to enjoy her old hobby. I hope we can all stitch until our fingers or our eyes wear out!! On that note I will close this weeks Stitching Saturday. Hopefully I will have some eye candy for you next Saturday.
