Have you had a ‘fallish’ weekend with lots of rain, clouds, but lower temperatures, too. High 60s to low 70s feels like a typical early November here. It has felt great – and a great stitching weekend! I’ve told you (and showed you) before how much morning glories remind me of my ‘first days of school,” and they’re blooming, too. The local schools' year begins this coming Wednesday.
I picked up the 2013 Just Cross Stitch Halloween issue from my LNS the other day. There are some really cute designs – but just not ready for Halloween stitching yet. I put in my order for the Christmas edition. I didn’t get the Christmas preview edition. Am I missing something great?
What AM I ready to stitch? I’ve been stitching Shepherd’s Bush, Eve’s Garden, and it has been so long since I posted, it is finished - LL Maritime 36 ct! I did my own conversion to Vikki Clayton’s Hand Dyed Fibers. I made a couple of other modifications – like Adam’s leaf! I guess it was the ‘point’ of the leaf, but I HAD to round it off a little. I also left off the suggested buttons, and changed to color of the verse to a deeper, more red color. It does change the overall look of the sampler, but I love it. Thank you so much to Terri from Chocolates for Breakfast for loaning me the chart. I really loved stitching it. I do agree with some of Terri’s comments about the symbols.
Thanks for stopping by and saying, Hey!
May 2013 be filled with Happy Stitching!
