So today I went to our Southern California get together at the Corner Bakery in Chino Hills. I took 3 projects to work on, and managed to work on 2 of the 3… First up is SB's Peter's Patch. The previous picture (you'd have to look WAY back to find it) had only the back outline which is a running stitch. I added the small motifs in the 4 corners. Then I needed to add something for the top row so I'd know which way was up :) So I did the top outer border, part of the two top inter squares and started to x-stitch the inter border.
It was fun to work on and I might do a little bit more yet tonight. Anyway it's out of the footstool and placed with the projects that I can just pick up and work on at a moment's notice.
The BIG NEWS, I did managed to get my Bent Creek finished :) I didn't actually finish it at the stitch-in, needed to attach the buttons at the bottom and add the french knots for the bat's eyes. So that's what I worked on when I got home and it is done!! So I can cross another one off the list. Can't decide if I want to finish it into a pillow or frame it. Most likely will get it framed.
I'm going to add a new start to my long list of projects. Got word that my nephew and his wife are having a baby before the end of the year. It's still a secret so shhhhhhh don't tell anyone yet. They will most likely announce the big event in another week or two. I had two stockings picked out for them, so needed to know if it was going to be a girl or boy. Heard it will be a little girl and has an impossibly LONG name!! So I got the speciality threads last weekend and need to find some material now and pull the rest of the DMC perle cotton #5. I will start it soon - in the mean time I need to work on the one for my granddaughter. So hopefully will have some progress on that before the moon is full.
Hope you are all stitching up a storm!!
