Wow...another full moon already! Time is just slipping by us...and I don't think I like it one bit!
This month I actually worked a little bit on an old UFO...when this design from The Scarlett House first came out I fell in love with it and bought it right away. I had the fabric and threads and put in a few stitches and then something else came up and I forgot about it. Then I decided to bring it to work as my "work project", but somehow I never seem to have any stitching time at work, so it got buried under a mound of other stuff. Well, I unearthed it the other day and wondered what the heck I was thinking to have ever put this one aside. So this is my meager stitching so far...please excuse the wrinkles...I just popped it out of the hoop for a pic...and actually I have stitched a bit more on it since...and hopefully will have a finish by the next full moon.
The design is called Coverlet Birds and it is stitched on a piece of evenweave in a really pretty pale blue/gray color. The fabric is so soft...I think it is PTP, but not sure. I am using three threads from GAST as well.
I also stitched my bit on Katie's round robin. We are doing this with Every Stitch Counts, and Katie chose a Halloween theme. I don't usually stitch much Halloween (even though I love all the cute designs), but this was fun...and Asher fell in love with it, so I think I will be stitching it again sometime soon! The design is from last year's JCS Halloween issue and it is called Happy Jack, from Mosey 'N Me...stitched on aida with DMC.
There was also another exchange piece for a patriotic exchange, but I can't show that one yet.
I hope everyone is enjoying the 4th...I think this will be a quiet day with some errands, some baseball and some stitching time.
