Almost there

Originally uploaded by Stitching scientist.

So here is my La d Da Peaceful ways (for dear sista), I still have another border to do, but I am very happy with the way it came out. The picture on the leaflet (quite frankly) stinks, it is blurry and way non true to color. It looks like the words are all one color (but not so on the pattern ) and that the outer petals of the flowers are darker than the branches (they are both supposed to be GAST cinnamon along with "words" and "ways".) Liz (that is sista) said she wanted the flowers to be a bit more red so I used WDW Brick instead of GAST Cinnamon. Now the flowers look more like the picture. Unfortunately it is a bit of a rectangle instead of a square so finding the right frame will be a challenge. But if it isn't framed by christmas...thats ok cause I will have Starlight starbright framed for her. I just need to paint the frame(which I have) a antiquey yellow.

Other Goals for Dec are:

  • Finish a cross stitched quilt square for a fellow Tarheel stitcher
  • Finish the afgan (days 10-12)
  • Finish Dec Flip it
  • Finish Peace tree ornament
  • Start Little Snowman in the Drifts
  • Do NO more than 3 new ornaments (I am feeling the itch)
  • Find and do my garden exchange piece for the SBEBB (due Jan 9th I think)

I went to find the ornament round robin ez board yesterday only to find it gone! I emailed Dani cause I remembered she was active on the board but she hasn't replied yet. Does anyone know where it went?? I hope it is just on sabbatical (sp?) or something.

I think we should take up a collection so La D Da can hire a professional photographer! I had the same problem recently with "A-Z and In Between". What is up with that? And why do we keep buying her adorable patterns? :)
