Oops, didn't mean to get you all excited. I don't have any finishes to show. What I meant by "Dancing and Stitching" is that I've been busy the last three nights watching the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars and stitching! Any other DWTS fans out there? Any predictions on who the mirror ball winner might be?
While watching DWTS, I needed a project that didn't require my full attention; something where I didn't have to follow the pattern so closely. So, I went stash diving and here's what I came up with.
The picture is a little on the dark side (the sun hasn't come out here yet!) Does anyone recognize the pattern? It's an oldie that I picked up on eBay. I'm stitching this beauty on Picture This Plus 36ct Shale. It kind of has a purplish/brownish hue to it and of course, it has the mottled look that I love. I'm really becoming rather attached to PTP linens! The fiber is a Belle Soie and it is called Plush Plum. Working with one color makes this an easy and relaxing stitch for me.
Oh, and you might be wondering about that scissors... it's the new Gingher Elena. Isn't she beautiful? Very colorful!
Have you figured out what design I am stitching yet? It's from Mary Garry and it is called "Peace." The letters "A" through "G" and the letter "K" have to be added yet, those are stitched over one. Then I just have three more quaker motifs to add. Don't worry, I'll post another picture when I am finished.
Anxiously awaiting for the news from market. Is there a design that you have seen that you are not going to be able to live without?
