I changed the color of the bird house from the dark navy to a lighter blue that was used in the Lizzy Kate. I also thought the leaves on the flagpole looked odd just hanging out there, so I sort of made it a "vine" by running the thread over and through the flag pole. I am fairly happy with how it turned out.
I have one more Americana peace lined up. Perhaps by Labor Day I will feel like doing it.
Ghouls Nigh Out by The Trilogy
Alas, another Halloween project. It is pretty cute and fast. It is on 32 count linen and I did it 2 over 2.
Oh Canada Sampler by Jeanette Douglas
I am really enjoying this piece more than I thought I would. I took an on-line class through Craftsy that was taught by Jeanette Douglas, that helped me understand her chart and instructions. This is the first time I have ever done a 1 over 2 piece and I am more impressed than I thought I could be. There is some 1 over 1 which is another thing I have never done before. The one over one is extremely tedius to me. I suppose it is worth it but this is going to take longer than I originally thought.
Mini Mandala 05 by Chatelaine Designs
This project is coming along. For some reason I am not so fond of it. But I am sticking it out.
Right now it is the only Chatelaine that I have in the works. (and I have to say that feels so weird) I have several kitted up and ready to go, but I am not sure which one I want to start since I sent the Old World Vinery off to my sister so she can have it framed.
Books Reading Books by Heaven and Earth Designs
Have decided that I need to put in more time on this project so I am going to try to do at least an hour or two a day. It is very confetti heavy (as most HAEDs are) so it takes me a long time. I do still enjoy it, however.
Although I have whittled my WIPs down to about 8 I still had trouble organizing them while keeping them handy to pick up and stitch. I found a canvas tote thingy and it is working out perfectly.
Thanks so much for visiting and I appreciate every comment, suggestion and hint!
