Hi all! I'm so excited! I just went and picked up my copy of this
Of course, Momo had to get into the picture. After I post, I will be losing myself in this book!
Turtle Trot, right! Here's Fancey, all finished
Fancey Blackett by Pineberry Lane, on 28ct Antique White linen with DMC. See the evil red eyes of the owls? And I thought the corn cobs looked great with their coloring. I have my fingers crossed that these pictures show up good on my blog. I'm at the mercy of this Blogger app. I'll miss Fancey but I do have one more pattern with her on it.
What's next? Oh yeah! I finished my 5th ornament
Snowy Night by Prairie Schooler, using 32ct Lambswool with DMC except for the dark area, used GAST Black Crow. I'll make this up like it is in the magazine, with felt backer and a hanger. Out of the JCS '08 Ornie mag. As Carol from Stitching Dreams said, Prairie Schoolers are a comfort stitch. And she's right. You can really lose yourself in them. They're like wearing an old comfy pair of slippers!
I also had some progress with the Ruby Pemberton Sampler Pillow, before
I wet this a little to iron it and some of the color bled in that middle row of stitches. Argh! I will keep this so it's no biggie! On 36ct, 1 over 2.
Couple weeks ago, I was hardly stitching at all. I was reading blogs and came upon Stacy Nash's blog with a pic of her new series of samplers and took one look at those chickens and said to myself, I've got to have this! Check out the chickens
Miss Baxters House. I put in an order for the fibers yesterday. Yes, my budget took a hit but I'll be a good girl from here on out. I do, however, need the fabric! Ha! My budget can handle the purchase of fabric because nothing in my stash looks good with this pattern.
I think that's all I had to say. Thanks for stopping in, as always. I really do appreciate your comments and try to respond quickly.
