DMC on 32ct Dirty Linen
I’ve been working on stitching ornaments here and there this year. I had intended to do one a month, but you know how that goes. This is my third ornament for the year. It wasn’t even on my to-stitch list, but after I saw a finished one at a guild meeting I remembered I had this pattern in my stash! I immediately went home and found my chart, and then pulled fabric and fibers from my stash. It’s such a cute, simple piece and I’m glad I was reminded I had it. After I finished it, I needed to get a little star button to add to it and I just finally made it over to my LNS last week. Not sure how I’m going to finish him yet, but I’m so glad I stitched him. Thanks, Katherine, for being my inspiration!!
I’ve also been stitching along on my Stacy Nash piece I showed you in my last post. It’s coming along slowly. I love the pale palette.
I went to book club on Friday night and we had a lovely discussion about The Hare with Amber Eyes. I’ve posted my latest book reviews over on the other blog, if you’re interested. I had intended to spend the rest of the weekend stitching, but it didn’t happen. Too many other things going on! Maybe tonight I can get my needle out.
I am grateful for Eric for being immensely patient with me while teaching me Lightroom and for all of his help last night, and most of all for refusing to allow me to post really crappy photos even though I was willing to settle for what I had. Thanks, sweetie!
