I picked up this cutie - started it yesterday. It is an easy stitch as most of the time I stitch on 36 or 40 count. This is 28 or 32 count (I took the fabric out of my stash). Cute! Oops - had to take out the pic...forgot that it's for a Christmas goodie and who knows, she may read my blog. I will do some posting of this in a few months and it will be finished! Sorry about that - can't do a pic at this time....but there are more - keep reading!
Then I have this. I tell you, I have been thinking of this one so much that I had dreams of it for two nights before it arrived in the mail. I hope the mailman didn't think I was stalking him as I waited by the mailbox for several days in a row; yep, there I was, walker and all... In my dream, I saw myself stitching it, feeling the silks and the linen! Is that crazy or what? It's the Birds of a Feather by With Thy Needle & Thread. And you probably can't see that much of the border as it's close to the linen color but with the flower below, it did pop out more. I am not sure I will do the letters in that color, as charted; will have to play a bit. And by the time I get to the letters, part III will be out and I will see what other colors I want to enhance or emphasize. This one has me wanting to get all the chores done (although mine are still limited) and stitch until my body can't sit a moment longer and my mind can't think any longer.
This one is My Missouri Home that I personalized with initials of myself, husband and son in the roof (over one, to make them blend in and not stand out). I put our last name in the grass with the words "Our Home". I love the strawberries in this one - that's why I just had to do it! I am a strawberry gal, there's no doubt about that!!!
