Ahh, Spring! It's supposed to get to 74 degrees today. Maybe I can finally turn off the heater!
Although I don't have all the threads needed, I decided to make the leap and start Christmas Garden by BBD!
I've been budgeting for the purchases of the threads needed for this as some call for 3 or 5 skeins each. I have 3 colors and still need 2 others which I'll buy here in another week or two. Above is what I have so far, just some border. It's huge! A new start is definitely what I needed and I haven't picked up anything else!
So we have a winner from the two that wanted the Aida and that would be LINDA!!!! Linda I have your address from the package you sent me for the Traveling Chest. Wonder what happened to that, if it got lost or what. I think some countries are going through mail strikes. Anyway, I'll have the Aida on its way to you this coming week.
How about another giveaway? This one is for the magazine and the fabric for one design..
My pictures are just terrible, ugh. The 28ct Dawn Grey Jubilee evenweave is for the project on the left-Autumn in New England. Lots of tweeding here, judging by the next picture..
The bracketing represents using one strand of one color and a strand of another. There's a lot of work here but it'll be beautiful when done. Not a whole lot of backstitching either. This is a JCS August 1992 issue with lots of other designs too. I've had this in my stash for a very long time; time for a new home! Who would like it? This time I can send overseas and Canada. As usual, if more than one person wants it, I'll draw names next Saturday. Open to everyone, follower or not.
Alrighty! That's it for today, a short post. I'm stitching on my GG project so I'll be back tomorrow to post for that. The 15th already! Time is just speeding by.
