I was blinded by the full moon…
That is my story and I’m sticking to itJ Well that and I was feeling a cold coming on so I took some meds and stayed in bed yesterday so I am a day late for Wipocalypse this month. Well I have not really worked on that many of my WIPs this month but I have been busy stitching. I completed the 8th part of AW80S.
The new stitches we worked this month were the Mossoul and Diagonal Mossoul, Damask stitch, a Rice stitch and a Pinwheel. This is probably the only time I will ever use these fancy specialty stitches but they are fun to learn.
For the rest of the month I have been working on Christmas ornaments and practicing making a biscornu. I had never made one before and I joined a biscornu exchange so I decided that I would try a couple before picking one for the exchange. This one I have decided will stay with me as my first.
Stitched in the magazine on Navy Lugana it’s called “White Lace” by Elizabeth Almond, mine stitched on Pink Aida is now Pink Lace.
Most of the stitching on the ornaments is done except for this last one…
the next big thing will be the finishing and that will all done in one day. So here is what I have so far.
“Love One Another”-Little House Needle works- on 28ct Mocha Cashel
“Santa”- Joan Elliott- on 30ct Northern Cross Linen
“There’s Snow Place” –Joan Elliott- 28ct White Monaco
“Praying Angel”-Treasury of Christmas Cross Stitch Designs- on 28ct White Monaco
Last but not least is or will be “Merry Stitch-mas”-Joan Elliott-on 28ct White Monaco
Well there you have it, what I’ve been working on this past month; I hope to have these finished in the next couple of days and will have pictures in my next post.
My new favorite thing is stitching to audio books; I listened to “1225 Christmas Tree Lane” by Debbie Macomber the other day. I love it! I made a trip to the library yesterday and got two more books on CD they are fantastic! I can just listen and stitch.
Thank you all so much for stopping by, please come again. Now I’m off to feed my face so I can make some more wonderful little xxs.
