I am back on my rotation in my stitching. I have decided to give each project two days worth of stitching. In these cold days, I get more stitching done.
I did have two new starts....
Winter Rose Manor by Brenda Gervais stitched on 32 count Vintage Country Mocha. I am using DMC on this stitch as it was so hard to get the over dyed flosses.
Mychal's Prayer....Silver Creek Samplers stitched on 16 cont dapple. I am joing a SAL started by my friend, Georgia, to honor the 20th anniversary of 9-11 this year. I am using my Mr Rogers needle minder because Mr Rogers always encouraged us to Look for the Helpers in difficult situations. Father Mychal gave his life by going to help. He was the chaplain for one of the fire departments called to the scene. He died when a piece of debris fell on him at the site.
My rotation included...
Strawberry Fields Forever by Blackbird Designs stitched on 16 count Gingerbread.
G Legere...by Reflets de Soie stitched on 16 count aida dyed by Graham Cracker Designs. ( Kitten Stitcher's son Graham) I just love this stitch and doing it on Aida is so much easier. I am using DMC plus a few overdyed flosses.
Finishes this week.
Hello Winter by Hands on Design. I could not find a hoop but I found a cute sparkly frame at TJ Maxx. It had a heart cut out but I knew my stitch, once mounted on foam core would cover the cut out. I really like how it turned out. It is sitting by my kitchen sink.
Forest Snowfall by Country Cottage Needleworks. I found this wreath in the Bridal Section at Hobby Lobby. I added a silver ribbon I had on hand for the hanger. Pardon the light...it is hanging on the door going to the garage and it was hard to get a good picture.
January Word Play by Brenda Gervais. I like the simple mounting on this wooden tray. I used magnets and washers to keep it in place. I think it really makes the stitching stand out when it is finished simply.
Winds of Autumn and Valentine Cupboard Hanger. Winds of Autumn will be put away until summer or early autumn but the Valentine piece will be stitched and finished this month as it is what I am stitching for our Stitchy Love Exchange with North Alabama Stitchers. Since my exchange partner does not read my blog( to my knowledge) I felt I could share it.
And a final look at my Winter Dough bowl that is on my dresser. The little snowman was stitched for me by my sweet stitchy friend, RJ. It is a Christmas ornament but I thought the snowman could stay out for the winter.
Happy Stitching Friends.
