Sorry it has been so long since my last post, but I have been busy stitching. For a day or two I didn't feel like doing much of anything, I had a touch of a cold, but taking some cold medication at the very first sneeze helped to knock it out before it could take hold. The weather here has changed so fast, the Wednesday before Sandy it was 80 degrees and the Wednesday after it was 42 degrees. Today “Election Day” is sunny and cold but that didn't hold me back, I was up at O dark:30 and stood in line for an hour and a half to cast my vote, now that it is done I can relax and stitch some more.
Speaking of stitching, when I did feel like stitching I couldn't decide what I wanted to work on, I picked up my Banu design and finished the leaf bunches and the cross stitch band, but picking the next color to use was a lost cause so I put it aside for something else.
As I looked through my bag of already kitted charts I pulled out this little one called “Idelia Mae Rich” that I showed here once before and started it. The dress is being stitched with The Gentle Art “Rhubarb” on 36 ct Vintage Butter crème linen and for some reason I couldn’t concentrate on making the xxs. Unfortunately this is all I have on “Idelia Mae”
After that I went on another search through my bag and found this little beauty already kitted up and ready to go. It is “Love One Another” by Little House Needleworks, it’s being stitched with DMC on 28 ct Cashel (Lt Mocha). It has really stitched up quick and is so much fun; I should have it finished in a day or two.
I saw this chart being stitched by my wonderful friend Evalina over at “This and That” and commented that it was something I would love to stitch and Evalina being the angel that she is sent it to me when she finished. It is a great chart and I already have the perfect fabric for it (WDW 30 ct in Guacamole), now all I need is time to stitch it. Thank you Evalina, you are a sweetheart!
I mailed off a Christmas ornament exchange piece last Thursday and as soon as my friend gets it I will show you a picture. That was the real reason for finishing all of the Halloween ornaments (I needed the practice). Well that’s what I've been up to, oh yeah I almost forgot. After the storm and for a treat Bud had a spa day, he really needed it.
Well it’s that time again, yes lunch time, so I’ll go feed my face and then make some more wonderful little xxs. Welcome to all of my new followers and thanks everyone for the lovely comments on my last post, I really appreciate your kindness.
