Confessions of a Serial Starter

I had a great stitching week!!! Not only did I make progress on "Feathers" and "The Lady" (sorry put her away before taking a picture so you'll have to wait until next week to see the right side border) but I had 4 starts with 2 being finished. I already shared the 2 finishes and here are the other two starts.



As you can see I did change this up a little. I'm doing it for my Seasonal Shelf and since the LK Stamp has pinks in it instead of red I wanted this to match. It is being stitched on a pink 28 count Evenweave I had in my stash with Crescent Colours and Dinky Dyes. I'm stitching it 1 over 1.






My fourth start of the week is the new tin set by Just Nan. This arrived in the mail on Saturday and I just couldn't wait to start it. This is what I got done on Sunday and I hope to have the stitching done today. It is stitched on WDW 30 count Sky (the fabric is a PITA to stitch on) with DMC and there will be some beads added last. I will be doing two sets of these, one for Deborah M and one for myself. I just love the Cardinals and use to watch them all Winter while living in Arkansas but they aren't here in the desert and I do miss seeing them. This project will bring back many happy memories.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Great work Renee. I have 2 sets of cardinals coming to my feeder now. Two females and 2 mails. I so love those birds. My maternal grandmother loved them as well and always called them red birds. She taught me to love all birds but like her I love Cardinals best.

Love, love, love the Just Nan tin. I MUST get this one. :) I see Cardinals all the time in my yard. I love to fill the feeders and see who comes. And Rosie, the kitty, love to sit in the window and watch too. :)

Your work is always soo nice!! Don't worry about being a serial starter...you are also a serial finisher! :-) I may have to invest in some JBW designs...thanks to you!

Nancy said...

This is the JBW design I have. Will love seeing it come to life and see if it urges me to start it too!

We have cardinals lots of times back here at the feeder although I haven't seen any for a few weeks. What I miss and love are black-capped chickadees but once in a while we get those too.
I really like that French Country Love pattern. Looks like it's going well so far!
