Here is a pattern from LHN that I have wanted to work on for a long time and just needed the motivation. I had joined the beCAUSE It's Pink exchange on HOE / HOE II and recieved some lovely pink linen by Silkweavers from Caroline P and decided that it would be perfect for this pattern. I will be turning it into a large needlebook and floss keeper. Here is the results of my weekend effort.
I had a couple of buttons left over from a baby sweater I had made awhile back and thought that one of the buttons I had left over would be perfect for it. Hope you can see the detail in the picture.
While in Branson looking for hunting gear , I needed to take a break so we went into Cecilia's Samplers for a bit to look around. They are no longer going to be carrying DMC Perle Cotton #3 and had bags of 10 marked for $1 a bag. Well I wasn't going to pass that up. I came home with 3 bags. They had placed 11 in one bag instead of 10 so I now have 31 skeins , originally marked for $1 a skein, for a grand total 0f $3! I figure I can use it for ornament hangers and so forth.
I worked some on the Be Ye Thankful piece and here is that progress.
Worked some more on Long Winter from Bent Creek that I started last year. Can you see the tiny little skater on the pond? I'm getting close to being done. I'm thinking either a navy blue or rusty red frame for this.
I had gotten a free pattern by JABC from Cecilia's the last time I was there. I wasn't sure whether or not I would stitch it so I popped it in the mail to someone. I then , of course, decided I would stitch it and had to get another copy. I had a small bit of blue evenweave that I tried some dye out on. I thought I would try to squeeze it in on it. Since it's 28 count it's stitching up to big for the tree I think. I will probably make it into a small pillow or bowl filler, I'm not sure.
Well , that's it for today. I will try to post something in a day or two.We'll see how it goes.
'til next time,
