So, in no particular order, here are some projects that were completed during my blogging absence (all pics are clickable)....
First up, Trudy's Flower by Elizabeth's Garden (daughter of Kathy Barrick)
This one I started, oh gosh, who knows how long ago, and I just couldn't get into that much. Finally decided it was because I was using one strand of DMC over two, and the coverage was "meh" at best. Thankfully, one of my daughters enjoys frogging (she takes after her father, go figure), so she ripped out all I'd done (which was about a quarter of it, so I could start over on that piece of fabric.
So, with TWO strands of DMC, over two on the 36 ct. Barn Owl, it was much better.
Dated 2009 because that's the date it had on it before daughter ripped it out.
Next, Dainty Housewren by Carriage House Samplings
Stitched on 40 ct. Ink Spot Black with Needlepoint Silk.
I left off the beads because they just seemed HUGE and too busy on this piece.
This one is Snow Day, from With they Needle & Thread
Stitched on 35 ct. Confederate Gray linen by WDW, with two strands of DMC over two.
A very fun stitch!
This one, I've done before, for an exchange I was in. Liked it so much that I had to do it again
The design is from Chartmakers, and is called Christmas Night.
Stitched with DMC and WDW threads, on 32 ct. black Belfast, over two.
I'm thinking it would be nice to get it made into a bag like before. My friend Patti did the previous one. Maybe Tobie can help me out this time ;)
That's all for now. Oh wait....pugs!! As requested by MaryLou :)
Someone stole Mom's stitchin' chair....
and promptly got kicked out and put next to his brother ;)
They really cannot stand it when they can't sit right beside me. We got them that big pillow you see in the second picture, which I would pull up right beside me in the sun room, but they'll have NO part of it, thankyouverymuch. Astro says "You wasted your money Dad! We'd all be much happier with a bigger stitching chair" :)
Happy weekend y'all. Stay tuned for more finishes...will post next week :)
