I hope that everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving full of family, friends, love and wonderful food. I know that I did. Now that the house is cleaned up and the turkey soup is made, I can now concentrate on some more stitching. I finished December Word Play last week. I just love these designs. I used a 36 ct. mystery fabric and the called for fibers. Hopefully, I can get it sewed up this coming week.
This is Winter Wind sampler from the Jan./Feb. 2011 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine. I used 36 ct. quicksilver linen and the called for CC fibers. You can click on any of the pic's for a larger view. It is prettier in person.
In between cooking and baking this week. I finished Take Joy by SB. I will be putting it in the box that they show on the cover of the kit. These little designs are so quick and fun to do. I would like to pass this design on. It would make a great ornament. I have some of the floss left. It may not be enough to do the design but you can use it to help pick your own colors. So just leave a comment on this post. If I have more than one person who wants the design, I will draw a name on Monday night.
This is my latest start, Winter Alphabet by LK. I am using 32 ct oatmeal or flax linen and the called for fibers. The white shows up much better in person. Because I refused to leave my home today to shop ( I am not that crazy) I managed to get quite a bit done. It's a happy stitch. Every square that you finish gives you that feeling of accomplishment.
Here is my Tusal for the month. They are very packed down. Next year I need to find a different jar. Thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post. I sure do appreciate them all. Enough the rest of the week end. Until next time.... Happy Stitching! Deborah
