Yesterday started out nice but it changed to rain as the day progressed. Made for another good stitching day! Before stitching though I worked on some finishing. That pile has grown over the last few months and I need to work on getting it down to a more manageable size!
Here are the fruits of my labor...two hornbooks and an ornament!
The hornbook top let is a design from Chessie and Me called Birds and Blooms. I used the recommended linen, 36 ct LL Vintage Exampler, and fibers, Belle Soie and Gloriana silks. Quick and easy finish!
The ornament to the right is from the LHN series - it's stitched on some 40 ct linen that I had in my stash with the recommended fibers.
At the bottom, Sew Petite from iStitch Designs. I used Gloriana Schoolhouse Red silk on some 40 ct linen from my stash. Another easy finish. If you are interested, you can purchase the chart from Carol here.
I also spent some time last night stitching on my Chessie and Me sampler from the Stitchville Retreat; not enough progress yet to be worth sharing a picture, but I will get there soon and then will take a picture for you.
Rainy, humid, a little windy here....here's to the week ahead. Hope it is a good one!
