I continued to work on “His Name is Jesus” and I finished the first page. I had just started the second page and the new start bug bit me and I had to see what this new chart would look like.
It's what I think is a freebie from http://olgamaxden.blogspot.com/ I was directed to this blog by a friend and I am so sorry that I cannot read a single word but there are some of the most beautiful charts with these specialty stitches. If and when I finish this start it will be for my daughter who loves purple. I am attempting to stitch this with DMC 30552 (S552) satin floss. Actually this is the second start of this chart, the first was on 28ct black Cashel linen and I couldn’t see the holes and got scared so I switched to 14ct black Aida. I didn’t want to ruin the linen picking things out.
In addition to the stitching I did some other stitch related tasks that I have let build up. I went through and returned all of the floss colors I have used in the last three or four finishes to my stash boxes and updated my inventory, yes I keep an inventory of which colors I have. They are mostly DMC but I do have a few WDW, Threadworx, Crescent Colors and The Gentle Arts.
Now this isn’t actually a figurine but it brought back so many memories when I first saw it I couldn’t help but buy it. When my husband was stationed in Hawaii my now 26 year old was only in elementary school and the hottest shoe style was “Jellys”. Talk about smelly feet, after a day at school and play I would have to clean the mud out of them every day but she loved them. The quarter is so you know that this is not the real shoe.
Well I hope everyone had a very good IHSW I sure did. Thanks for stopping by and please come again soon. Time to make the little xxs.
