Hello Dear Friends! The frame for the ~*Christmas Sampler*~ has been ordered... but hasn't arrived yet. So... last night I switched gears a little & started stitching up my latest freebie... if I had started 30 minutes earlier it would have been finished. It is a quick stitch for sure! I have plans to give this one as a gift... after making it into a small cupboard hanger. I picked up a big piece of linen & started stitching in the lower corner... just something I do when I'm too lazy to measure things out. Actually, this piece of linen wasn't marked with the size. I'm thinking it is probably a 32 count. I'm stitching 2 over 2 & using DMC floss colors 3021, 3768, and 3790. Lately I'm really loving the combination of 'old' blues & browns.
'Quick Stitch' patterns are really a refreshing break... and give an almost instant feeling of accomplishment. That is something I could really use right now... the ~*Christmas Sampler*~ is near completion... but the work on my studio is about to do me in. I am still working on the trim around the windows, doors, and floor (removing the old paint)... stripping and sanding. Oh... how I want to get things primed and painted NOW! I picked up the latest issue ~ the Christmas issue ~ of Country Sampler Magazine... and I'm finding myself really excited to get busy decorating for the holidays now too! Are you?
Wishing you all warm smiles...
THIRD SIDE DONE!
