This is the start of "When Witches Go Riding". Not a lot done yet but it's a start. I just love this fabric by Silkweaver's. It's called "Dark Tan" and is what I used last year on "Pumpkin Patch". I wasn't sure there was enough left to do the new project and it's a bit skimpy on the sides but since the finish probably won't be matted it should work out fine.
Design from "Pumpkin Patch" by Prairie Schooler
stitched on 32 count hand dyed Evenweave
This was a start and a finish while working on "When Witches" and I just love the way she turned out. A really fun, quick stitch and my new favorite way to finish small designs.
As I titled this entry I went into a Finishing Frenzy after a trip to WalFart for some seasonal fabrics. The stitching got put down, the pins and glue came out and this is what I did.....
I just had to use this fun fabric for the "Snowman". You really can't see it but the fabric has snowmen and the words Merry Christmas with some sparkles. I then added the Pearl pins to give it some bling and they kinda look like snowballs.
I used a 4" finishing form to put this one together. It still looked kinda plain to me so I decided that the Red/White metallic cording would add some sparkle and dress it up a bit. You really can't see the sparkle in the fabric and cord but it really shines in the light and should sparkle on the tree this year.
And last but my favorite......
"Hardanger Christmas Tree"
This is the design I created for my Hardanger Class and what started the frenzy. I knew I wanted the Red/Green plaid fabric and was so happy when I found it I just had to get this done NOW. I found the Red/White/Green metallic cording in my ribbon stash and I think it really sets off the colors in the stitching and fabric.
Well that is what I did this week and I have 3 more projects sitting here with their fabric for finishing. By the end of the weekend I'll have more finishes to share with you and maybe even more done on the current WIP.
Tomorrow is Tracy's birthday and the start of his vacation. Not sure how much stitching I'll get done with him home and awake all day hehehe. He works nights and sleeps days so I normally have all the time I want to stitch but who knows what will happen with him awake. We aren't going anywhere on vacation, staying home with maybe a trip out to the strip to play tourist and then out for a birthday dinner. There is a free concert on Fremont St next Sunday that we will plan on attending to end the vacation.
Until Next Time.....Happy Stitching
