Yay, rain! We have not had precip since sometime in December. Sometimes storms leave the worst of it in California and by the time it gets here, they're just showers. I don't think anyone here in AZ has any flooding. Thank goodness.
So it's TUSAL time!
I had more orts last month but I've been stitching steady, except for two days. I'll explain further down!
Happy Dance! Two of them
This is Home, A Diminutive Sampler by Pineberry Lane. I loved stitching this. From the over one in Home at the top (yeah, I put on my big girl panties and did it!), to the satin stitched lawn right below the house. I had run out of GAST Roasted Marshmallow and bought more with b-day $$ and luckily it matched. I'm going to look for a frame for this, something that won't overpower the design because it is.....diminutive ;))
And Snow Day by LK
Don't you like how that one weak ray of sunshine is passing through the snowman?! I used the called for threads except for maybe the snow. It said GAST Whitewash, and I'm pretty sure I used it but there are no variations. So I think I used DMC white! It looks pretty good though. I'm thinking pillow for this but I'm not sure of the fabric to use with this like do I use a color that matches some of the colors or a solid that matches the trees or white? What do you all think? So anyway, I could SMELL finishes last weekend stitching these two and had tunnel vision, ignoring everything else. After I was done, I gave myself two days off of stitching! Lol. Home is one of my Turtle Trot WIPs and Snow Days is a new 2014 start.
I was taking pictures on my craft table and looked over at my pile of finished things and thought I should try to finish finish at least one thing and here's that result!
Yellow Bird by La D Da. I trimmed it with chenille and stuck 3 gold colored pins into it. And that was it for finishing! After that I kitted up a couple ornaments.
I don't know when I'll start on these because Spring and Easter-y designs are whispering at me. I have three projects kitted up for those. I've just been a kitting fool! Kits here, kits there, etc.....
Well that's my Ort report. I've been bad in responding to your comments the last post so I'll do better here on out. I really appreciate everyone stopping by, regular commenters or lurking. I lurk a lot too! Take care you all! I'll be back on the 10th!
