I started Heaven and Nature Sing by With Thy Needle and Thread. I am not thrilled with the fabric. I think I would have preferred a more creamish color, but I got the recommended fabric ( two pieces of it as a matter of fact) so I am going to use it. It is 39 count line in Cafe Kona. It is a goldish brown. I hope it will go with my sister's decor. It is a Christmas theme so I guess it does not really have to "go". It is a pretty fast stitch, so I hope to have it ready to give her by Thanksgiving so she can have it out for the rest of the holiday season.
I started the Nora Corbett letter A for my grandgirl to get it done and framed for Christmas. I am using the recommended fabric this time. It is a 32 count Water Lily linen. It looks to have alot more beading than the "R" I just finished.
For some reason it makes sense to me to do Thanksgiving themed projects in October so here they are:
Thanksgiving themes for October:
Be Thankful by Country Cottage Needleworks
I will be doing this on 28 Count Coffee evenweave by Fabric Flair.
Giving Thanks by Not Forgotten Farm
I will do this on a 32 Count Ivory Lugana that I already have. I may be able to get two of the little pillows out of this piece. I am thinking of changing the wording to Give Thanks rather than Giving Thanks. Not sure as I have not started this one.
Patterned Gourds by Sharon Pope from Just Cross Stitch magazine.
This is on a 28 count Jobelyn in Chai Tea. I really love this fabric. I have had it for a while and think it is perfect for this project; must more subtle than the orangy fabric in the photo.
This is a great piece to work on outside since the weather has cooled off quite a bit. It is done in DMC from my inventory so I will be able to launder it once it is finished. I like the way it is finished in the photo of the piece, just stretched over a canvas, no frame. I think that is how I am going to finish it.
I am realizing that a week of October is already gone. The good news is that I should have alot of time for stitching.....the bad news is that I have a foot injury that is not healing very rapidly so I am doing alot of sitting.
I gotta get busy!
Hopefully I will have a couple of finishes this month.
Thanks for visiting.
