Tossing for Annemarie

Although I really should be writing a nice long post to let you know what I've been stitching I just can't seem to find the energy at the moment. It's not that I haven't been stitching but the progress on the SALs are nothing to write home about and the small things I've been working on I want to keep secret until they arrive.

I kept on asking myself what I could post and show so that you at least know I'm alive and kicking. Suddenly the idea hit me. When we were stitching our first Fair & Square round Annemarie showed us her toss and I thought that was great - information given but no secrets revealed. Well.........now that I'm stitching for Annemarie in Round 2 I just couldn't resist being a copycat (hope you don't mind). So here it is:


The linen is a 32 ct natural and the floss colors are: DMC 316, 500, 501, 833, 902, 924, 926, 950, 3726 and 3768. In case you would like a hint about what I am stitching I'll tell you that the design made me think of Annemarie's occupation (far-fetched idea perhaps but I guess I'm good at those). There is one color in the toss which may give you a hint about the theme of the square.

Heehee, thanks for showing this, Margaret. What a great idea of mine this is! LOVE the colours, by the way. I see you've been doing my homework. Though I cannot for the life of me imagine what you are planning to stitch for me. Watch out for a floss toss in my next blog post!

Great idea, Margaret! Oh and Annemarie too. We always feel the need to add a picture in our posts, don't we. So why not a little hint of what we are doing? And now you have our tweaked our curiosity too!

Oooh grat flossies! Sometimes its hard to find the energy to blog... or just what to write about. I tend to hold onto things like questions I've been asked or SBQ's and use those for the days I feel like I should blog but have nothing to blog about!

Can't even make a guess at what you'll stitch, but the colors you've selected look gorgeous.
