I managed to get In Full Glory by Blackbird Designs finished. I didn't think it would take me 5 days to get it done but there it is. One of the reasons I didn't get more pieces stitched.
|40 ct Flax w/ my color changes|
So, since the piece of linen I had was the perfect size to stitch both of these on, I stitched Old Glory by Little House next. Also on the 40 ct Flax, mostly with the same colors as the one above.
Then I thought I should probably work up a couple of Christmas ornaments for the exchanges I am participating in this year. I started Fa La La by Country Cottage and then realized that the other exchange is the same weekend as our stitch group Girls Trip to the Mountain. Guess I won't need that 2nd ornament after all!
This is stitched on a 36 ct mystery fabric and worked up to be larger than I like. We'll see what it looks like after it is 'finished' and it can either be an exchange ornament or it can go into my dough bowl at Christmas. I have a pattern for ribbon candy ornaments that is stitched on perforated paper that I have done several times and I am sure it would be welcomed again.
Not to be without some sort of stitching at hand, I took out Strawberry Fields again. It is so cute and if I can just concentrate on it for a while, it will be finished in no time!
Also on 40 ct and fits quite handily entirely within a 8 x 11 Q Snap! Getting ready to put on the roof tonight. I know I said I was going to make Old Glory by Rosewood Manor my group piece now but I think I will have to work on this one until it is finished now.
I still have some work to do to get the house ready for company. Why is it that your perfectly acceptable house becomes a pig sty to your eye when you have guests coming?? Should be a lot of fun those once she arrives though. Stashing and stitching. What more could you want?
