I seem to be 'discombobbulated' lately. Nothing is suiting my fancy. Nothing is ringing my chimes. Nothing is calling to me to be stitched.
June Morning by The Goode Huswife? How can I resist these Belle Soie threads??? On the stretcher bars, 40 count, ready to go...
I did finish Love One Another --- over 1 on 26 count Belfast Linen. That was fun.
Then I thought... why not try a fun color of linen...so here's The Queen of Hearts by Ewe and Eye and Freinds started....
Or...Charlotte Clayton... I started her on the 32 count with one strand of silk and didn't like it. So, off to my stash of fabric and selected a nice 36 count. Here she is started...this one is fun. The design with the HUGE rose and tiny dogs. Can't wait to get to the HUGE cats on the bottom. Quite an entertaining stitch to say the least.
This one, Shepherd's Bush Remember, just about did me in and ended up the the trash...but a cooler head prevailed. See the center, see the 4 threads between the 'e' and 'm', where there should only be 2!!!! I figured, compensated, stitched, frogged, and got to the point where I had used up all the dark green for the vine backstitch and had to unpick all that and start with a new color and then.............. Well, needless to say it went back into the bag and I'll start it all over again on another day..... Lord where was my brain that day???
Maybe I'll just stick with the hexagon paper piecing. I want to make some fun pin cushions!
