The rain did mean I had no excuse not to get some work done. Work, work not houswork. It is deadline time at work and that means working at home on the weekend. I do try to find a little time to relax. And nothing is more theraputic for me than working outside in the gardens and stitching. I can't wait until May, June when I can do both! Stitch outside!It has been a really good stitching week. I finished "Coming to America" by Little House Needleworks. Stitched on 28 ct mocha Lakeside linen using the called for floss. I love how it turned out. I changed the dates on the bottom to reflect the dates that I know my ancestors were here in America and the second date is the date my great-grandmother came to New York. (Note: on family line probably came earlier than 1750 but I haven't found that information yet.) Sorry that the photo is a little crooked.
My second finish of the week is also my 5th finish for March! WoooHooooo. This one was a really quick stitch and as soon as I find the right frame it will go next to the one I finished earlier, "Stitching Mends the Soul". They will look great together since I stitched this on the same fabric as the other. This is "My Needle and My Floss" by Waxing Moon. Stitched on 14 ct blue marbled aida by DMC. Using DMC and Weeks dye works floss.
With two more finishes for the week it's time for a few more starts and wips updates.
The photo to the left is one I started a month or so ago and decided to get some more work done on it. I love this saying. And when the border is done it will be pretty on the gold flecked fabric.
The design is by the Sunflower Seed.
I have two more projects started but I can't show them yet. Both are gifts.
Next up is the newest of my WIP. I started this one yesterday afternoon while takinga break from work to watch L'il Abner on TMC. (Love those old musicals. And I was in this one when I was doing community theater years ago!) Can you guess what pattern this is???
Well, it's back to work. Until next time......................
Love and stitches
