It's been a good weekend for stitching - I've been camped out in front of the TV watching the Olympics and working on stitching projects.
First let me share with you a picture of the Fair & Square blocks that I received from Peg yesterday. Aren't they sweet? Thanks Peg!
Last weekend I pulled this UFO out of my basket. I think I started it on New Year's day (2008) or shortly thereafter. I got busy with other projects and it's been sitting. But since it is a birth sampler and the baby's first birthday is coming up in a few months, I decided that I best get it done! This is for a good friend that I work with. The design is from La D Da and it is called Gabrielle Rose. I used DMC threads on 36ct Light Examplar from Lakeside Linens. I used one strand of floss over two threads. For anyone who might consider stitching this one, I would recommend using DMC 645 instead of DMC 646 for the words "I Love You" -- there wasn't enough contrast between 646 and the salmon colored pink (3773). I wanted something that was kind of vintage looking since the family lives in an older farmhouse. Turned out sweet don't you think?
I have two exchanges in transit; one I fear might be lost. I was able to complete the finishing on another project for Make A Wish to be mailed later this week. Check back later in the week; hopefully I will have more pictures for you!
