Hardanger Class Project
"Sweet Dreams" free design from Polstitches
stitched on 28 count Cashel from Silkweavers with
DMC #8 and #12 Perle Cotton
I then just had to do another project. Told you the bug has bitten me. This little heart only took me a couple of hours to do. Not sure what type of finish I'm going to do with it but I think it is so sweet. I know I will be doing this design again and again as it was easy, quick and fun.
Stitched on 28 count Evenweave with
DMC #8 Perle Cotton and Dinky Dye Silk Ice Strawberry
Still in the mood for speciality stitches I pulled out "Tea and Stitches" and spent a little time on the border. I did a few of the "fan" stitches and then got 3/4 of the eyelets done.
I also worked on "Home is Where You Hang Your Needlework" but forgot to take a progress photo before I put it back in the WIP basket. It is almost 2/3 done now and shouldn't take long to finish.
There has been lots of talk about "Fly Lady" method of cleaning and such. One tip was to set a timer for 15 minutes and do what you can in that time frame. I will have to say it WORKS. I tried it this weekend and managed to get a lot of my stash organized, put away and now I have a very neat and tidy desk top again. I am going to continue using this method and should have a very clean and tidy stitching/computer area very soon.
Well it's Monday and that means I'm back to stitching on Monopoly and should have side 2 done before it's put away for another week. Plans are to finish the "grow!" pin cushion this week and maybe even do another Hardanger Heart.
Until Next Time.....Have a Great week with Lots of stitching time
