With the computer problems this wee and the time I spent shopping for a new one and getting it set up I didn't get as much stitching done. Here are the two projects I started.
This is a free design from Dragonfly Stitches for a needle roll. It is designed in shades of blue but since when do I do things as designed. This is the second time I'm doing this one, I did this chart for Deborah for her birthday and enjoyed it so much I wanted to do it for myself too. It's stitched on 28 count Cherub Lugana by Picture This Plus with Crescent Colours Prickly Pear and Meadow Grass. I had originally planned on doing it in just the pink but it looked like I had spilled a bottle of Pepto Bismol on it so I frogged a little and added the green. I like it much better now with the touch of green. I had to stop working on it when I ran out of the Pink thread but have ordered more and it will be here the first of the week and I can then finish it off.
I said I was not going to start any more BAPs but I just couldn't help myself. I have seen several others doing the Monopoly board and I haven't wanted to do one for many years but gave up when the chart went OOP. One of the ladies in my ILCS group got permission to copy and share the chart so she started a Yahoo group for those who wanted to stitch the board. I received the chart the same day my computer died so to cheer myself up I decided to start it.
This is truly a Big A$$ Project. The fabric is cut 28" x 28" and the border is only 2" on this one so the stitched area is 24" x 24". I'm stitching it on a 28 count Mint Green Monaco with the called for DMC colors. This is the bottom right corner and I should be able to "Pass GO and collect $200" soon.
That's about it for the stitching this week. I do plan on getting a lot done this weekend. I think I'll start the next 12 Days ornament on Sunday since there are no color changes with it I can stitch and watch the Super Bowl.
Until Next Time....Have a Great weekend with lots of stitching
