Last week I went to my monthly guild meeting and look at the beautiful display that two of our members set up. One of them stitched all of those fabulous Prairie Schooler acorns. Aren’t they cute?! I think these are from a leaflet called, if you can believe it, Acorns (No. 65) – go figure. Such a sweet little addition along with the basket of gourds to the snack table.
I’ve made very little progress on Garden of Eerie, just getting started on the tree.
Most of my time has been spent on And They Sinned. I’ve spent so much time back and forth ripping out and restitching the clouds and I was determined to get it fixed. I brought this piece with me to guild night as my show and tell of what I’m currently working on.
I finally got the clouds lined up and in the right spots, and then went to work filling in the right hand side. It took all weekend, but I’ve got it filled in now. I stitched through a Teen Mom marathon on MTV and then all of Season 2 of Laguna Beach. That’s a lot of cloud filling in!
And you can see that I worked on the vines on both sides in order to help with cloud placement. I also filled in the little motifs inside the clouds. Next step is to start on the center portion of the cloud. I’ll be so glad to use a color other than Pebble, that’s for sure. My photo is a little crooked, but when I take pics on Monday morning, I’m still a little bleary-eyed.
It looks like it’s going to rain this morning, and I’m wishing the weather would cool off just a tad more. If I could get my allergies under control and get over feeling like crap I would be very very happy. I’ve signed up for a 10k on Saturday, so I’d better get to feeling better asap!
I am grateful for some stitching time.
