On '1 over 1' I can never tell the actual size of the piece from the picture. I need someone to put a quarter by it so I can tell. So here it is with my quarter..blurry and all. But you get the idea. It was a fun stitch and didn't take long at all.
And shouldn't I be starting my Christmas stitching in July? Well, yes I should, but I started my July stitching in July. Here's my start of Sheepish Designs 'Betsy' stitched on 35 count Weeks Dye Works Parchment.
The instructions called for DMC or NPI. I knew with my stash of 10,692 skeins of NPI it would be no problem pulling the called for colors. AND...you know this is coming...I only had ONE, yes...that's ONE of the called for colors!! DANG, DANG, DANG. Not to be disgruntled, I decided to check out my enormous stash of silks, pulled out the AVS drawer and used my 'on hand' colors. I think Betsy looks pretty darn good.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your stitching time!!
