30 count Sandstone Tea Dyed Linen
A lot of stitching going on; so quick update!
- “All Creatures Great and Small” by Barbara Ana Designs
- “Elizabeth McGuire, 1763” (Dear Diary #3) by Little House Needleworks
So many threads everywhere! I hope everyone is finding time for themselves and stitching. Happy Stitching!
Good morning, stitchers!
Early this morning I finished Mary:
I added a pop of color with her blouse and the bird with DMC 927 (which is part of the whole series’ color palette).
I also backstitched the bird’s beak instead of a full cross stitch as it was patterned.
I’m so happy with how it turned out. So on to Number 3 in the series!
Hello all, and happy Friday!
I’ve finally made some progress on “Mary.” The colors are perfect for Fall.
I also have a new start. When I didn’t have the desire to stitch on the Dear Diary project, I brought out Summer House Stitche Workes’ “Sophia.” Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE owls. I have so many owl decorations in my house already, but when I saw this, I needed to stitch it. I paired it with lovely sparkly fabric, too. I frogged so much on this one oak leaf that I went back to stitching on Mary the next day. Sometimes you just NEED a new start.
I’m ready for a well deserved relaxing weekend with tons of stitching and Bilbo/Belle cuddling. I also have a bunch of new stash coming in today and tomorrow (from some serious shopping therapy), so I’m looking forward to unwrapping my new cross stitch goodies. I hope your weekend is as bright and happy too! Happy stitching!
Joy and motivating are the only words I can come up with to describe stitching this. I used all the called for DMC threads, and I used 28 ct Lambswool linen.
Well it’s time to clean up this project and set up for the second: Mary Heaton, 1878.
Stay safe in this weather, and happy stitching!
