A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
This year I am going to have two monthly challenges:
1. The Primitive Hare Hallowe'en Cubes SAL
2. The Hallowe'en Ornie SAL themed blog.
and a third one added from August:
3. The Christmas Ornie SAL themed blog
You may have seen my previous post where I showed the completed Hallowe'en Cubes? Here is a close-up of the final letter E:
stitched on 32 count Vintage Grain linen
I stitched them out of order because I needed the N for a theme on the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL Blog. Now all I have to do is make up nine cubes.
Here is the design I stitched for the theme of Ghosts for the Ornie SAL:
Just Nan Ghoulies and Ghosties
stitched on 28 count tan evenweave
I didn't make a Christmas Angel for the Christmas Ornie SAL but I did show a montage of some of my previous angel designs. You can see them here.
I have been stitching Christmas smalls though, the Plum Street Sampler 12 Days SAL. Here are my first two and half days!
Apologies for the poor photos, the light isn't good for the fabric. I've chosen to stitch them over one on a 25 count linen. It's a very loose weave as you can see. For the red I'm using a Splendor silk and then a different accent colour for each design. First Day is DMC 3045 Pear, Second Day is a blue Splendor silk and Third Day is going to be brown. Probably DMC 434, we'll see how it looks.
If I can manage to stitch Fourth Day before Sunday I will be all caught up and can do one per week for a Christmas finish. We shall see.
Finally, the next post will be the Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop on the 31st. Picture Posters, watch out for your email coming very soon. Blog Hoppers, watch out for the Hop!
