May update



Sorry this is so late. I've been having trouble trying to get photos up, and then I just got busy stitching and forgot all about posting! Oh well!

I did manage to accomplish most of my goals this month. I stitched another block for the Stitchers' Timeout block exchange. This month's designer was Homespun Elegance, and I stitched a small bit of the Miniature Samplers IV pattern. I used this for a round robin once and I thought it was a really sweet design. Stitched on an evenweave with DMC.


My ornament this month was a companion piece to the one I stitched last month from La-D-Da. The design is called 'Tis Red and it was stitched on a piece of linen with Carrie's silk thread in Olde World Red...such a pretty red, and her silks are wonderful to work with. This was from the Just Cross Stitch ornament issue 2010.


I also stitched another of the mittens from the Criscket Collection. This one is called Have a Heart Mitten. It is stitched on linen with DMC and is from the Lacy Eggs booklet.


I borrowed another pattern from the Blackbird Designs Lending Library, but I didn't like the fabric or floss that I started with, so I decided to start it over! This is called Autumn Silhouette and this is how far I got.


Finally, I finished my Lizzie Kate project - ABCs of Aging Artfully. It is stitched on an evenweave with the called for Gentle Arts and Weeks threads. The fabric color is a buttercream color ...really pretty. It looks so washed out here! I can't remember when I started this one...it's been awhile, but once I started working on it, it went along pretty quickly. It was really a fun piece to do.



So that's all for this update. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
Happy stitching!
