A Productive Weekend!
I got a lot of stitching done this weekend. I finished this little piece by A Mon Ami Pierre. Its stitched over 1 on 28ct evenweave. This was my first over 1 project and it was a bit difficult. Thank goodness for my mini clip-on magnifying glass, which really helped me to see those tiny holes! I used Old Maid of the Vineyard from HDF. The floss is a pretty wine/purple combo. Eventually I plan to make this into an ornament or pinkeep.
I also finished parts 7 and 8 on the Papillon SAL. I really love how this project is turning out. So now this project is over half done.
Here is Home of a Needleworker Too by Little House Needleworks. Its stitched on 28ct Antique White Jobelan. I changed the color of the house, spool of thread and ribbon at the bottom to Weeks Dye Works Lavender. Originally it was blue. This was my first time using Jobelan. I really liked it and will probably use it again for future projects
And finally, this is Willie's Quaker Square #7 by Monasterium Designs. This design was published in the June issue of Gift of Stitching. I stitched it on 28ct White evenweave with Velvet Masquerade from Vikki Clayton HDF. I really love this blue color.
