On Saturday night, I finished stitching "Deepest Love", (Turquoise Graphics & Designs). I am pleased with the way it came out, but haven't quite decided if I want to frame it or turn it into a wallhanging with some coordinating quilting fabric. Hmmm..... One of my stitching friends, Ellen, is coming over in a few days for a "Stitching Day", so I am looking forward to sharing ideas with her. Two heads together always makes for a better decision, in my opinion. So will share with you, at a later date, what I have decided about my final finish.....
So, of course, on Sunday, I had itchy fingers to get started on a new project, and although it's a little late in the month to start a "February" project, I decided to start working on the Drawn Thread February "Mini Pocket Calendar Cover". My LNS has been awaiting a shipment of Lavender Mist linen since the end of January, (which is called for in the design), but alas, the supplier has it backordered with no definite shipping dates! So, I went hunting through my stash, and lo and behold, I found a large enough piece of 32 count Lavender Mist linen inside of another package, and it was large enough for both the original design, for which I purchased it, and just enough for my mini pocket calendar too! Hurray!
I have decided to deviate a bit from the fibers recommended in the pattern and have chosen Vikki Clayton-Dyers' Hand-Dyed silks for my project. They are very nice to work with, lovely colors and I really like the little spools on which they are wound...so nice and convenient to use and to store too.
Where ever you are, thank you for visiting my stitching blog. I love reading other stitching blogs too, and your comments really mean a lot to me. Hope that your week has some peaceful moments to cherish, just for you, and some special time for stitching, of course!
