Cat Lessons For People – Lizzie Kate
This one made me giggle, and kitties are the most perfect pet out there imho, so there you go. More variegated floss, which I am slowly starting to get over my aversion to.
Butterfly Profusion – Dimensions Kit
In spite of my loathing for 14 count, it doesn’t look half bad. The backstitching helps.
I have the four Victorian Sampler elements patterns that require extensive hardanger, so this was a test piece to see how that would go. I found it very enjoyable, although my specialty stitches are going to require practice….. I even managed to clip two threads that Should Not Have Been Cut, and this had the hair raising experience of fixing my first hardanger oops. It wasn’t as bad as I expected.
Letter R – Letters From Nora – Nora Corbett
These stitch up quick! More variegated floss, to the point that I’m actually starting to enjoy it. 😳 This one is going to another friend once I get it FFO’d.
Joyful World SAL – The Snowflower Diaries
I started these on a linen burlap and I don’t like it. It’s too coarse and dark (the bottom photo is the most accurate for color) and it overwhelms the stitching. Back to the drawing board.
Here Comes Treble – Ink Circles
First in a set of three including the alto and bass clefs.
As you can see, I’ve been busy. But that is not all, oh no! I have a few more starts to show you yet, so don’t go too far.
