Well at least I'm not waiting as long between posts as last time. Of course with pictures to show you I just couldn't resist.
My first finish today is a gift for a little friend who adores anything that moves.
This design was adapted from the Jan/Feb 1990 edition of Cross Stitch & Country Crafts which my SIL was kind enough to give me when we were in Michigan in May. It is stitched on 14 ct antique white Aida with DMC floss. A real fun project.
Also finished today - 'Scary Scraps' - the SAL with Juls
and Brenda. I saw this piece for the first time when Martha brought it into Stitcher's Paradise the day she was taking it to the framer. I thought this little guy was so cute and fell in love with the Twisted Peppermint Pink overdyed linen she had stitched on so immediately ordered the lot. What a fun SAL this was ladies - thank you!! 'Scary Scraps - the Mummy'
stitched 2/2 on 30 ct Twisted Peppermint Pink OD linen
with DMC, Needle Necessities & Rainbow Gallery threads
Now that I'm down to two WIPs it is time to start a new project (how can I resist?). I promised my SIL in Michigan that I would stitch the Eagle Bluff Lighthouse by the artist/designer Brigitte Kozma for their cottage at Wolf Lake. Lighthouses are the main theme in their cottage. The pattern was printed in the Jan/Feb 1988 issue of Just Cross Stitching which she gave me. Once again I'll be stitching on 14 ct Aida since I have a piece which is not only the right size but also the right color.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and relaxing and stitching as much as possible.
