I really thought I would have more stitched this month, but... one thing or another interferred with my plans. Note to self: Don't bother making plans!!
Anyway, I have two finishes to share! One is a WIP... finally done! And one was a new one!
First is the WIP. It is Merry Christmas Ornaments by Country Cottage Needleworks. I don't know what specifically made me drag my heels on stitching this one for sooooo long, but... glad it is done! I may do a tiny little stitch on some of those straight stitches but... It will be framed and gifted. Stitched on R&R Old Mill Java, 36-count, 2 over two... that may be why I didn't enjoy the stitching... next time, one thread with 36-count!!
And then the new start, and finish... Willie's Quaker #7, by Monasterium? From an old digital issue of The Gift of Stitching. Again, it is unusual... I used a variegated thread by Hand Dyed Fibers called Examplar Autumn from Vicki Clayton (she no longer offers these threads), stitched on 36-count R&R Foggy Bottom fabric, ONE over two! It will be framed and I will hang it by the other Willie's Quaker that I did and love also (the one with the numbers across the middle)! I love the motifs, but sometimes I want to just surprise people with my stitching! :)
I took out a few, new, kitted projects to think about doing, and one WIP for August stitching. Who knows? I DEFINITELY want to do some finishing in August. Gads... there's a lot to be done! And I am ready! So, look forward to seeing a report in August! Maybe... :)
Till next time,
