...and one finish (so far) for the month, it's an ornament from The Trilogy's 'Ornamentology' leaflet. Once again, I left off the border on this one. My silly dogs were running around while I was trying to take pics, and kicking up dead grass that kept flying over onto my cross stitch.
Above is my progress on 'Coffee Menu' by Little House Needleworks. It is stitched with DMC, GAST, and Crescent Colours on 28 ct. Vintage Autumn Fields by Zweigart-love the fabric!
And this is my progress on Bent Creek's 'Snapperville'. I didn't really have any interest in stitching this until I saw it all stitched up together with the free border on their website. I am stitching mine on Birds of a Feather 'Sandpiper' 32 ct. linen.
And now for my Ewe&Eye&Friends start from the 2006 calendar. I call it the 'funky coffee cup' but it's called 'Winter Warmth' on the chart.
It's been a weird month. There was even an entire week that I didn't pick up a needle! I just haven't really been in the mood to blog, and with competition for the computer, I don't have a chance to be online some days until really late (past 10 pm). My son changed schools and is going to school an hour earlier than before, requiring an hour earlier alarm setting for me. There has been some crud going around and we've all been down with that.
I have been able to attend more stitching get-togethers than ever though! It's been great fun to meet more stitchers, stitch, & gab. It's definitely my idea of fun. I went to the movie once this month too, to see 'The End of the Spear'. Great movie! I am so glad I had kleenex handy. I am a big cryer when I watch movies and read. My two friends that I went to the movie with were completely dry-eyed. Hrmphh!
I just picked up my mail and had a *wonderful* new Quaker chart waiting in the mailbox. LOVE IT! I can hardly wait to buy my 40 ct. linen and start stitching this one!
Today, I plan to stitch on 'Coffee Menu' some more. First things first though....laundry calls. I hope there is something good on tv tonight!
