Well, not really, that just seems to be all I have stitched on this week. Here is the completed Moon and Stars...This one and Lavender Hill (below) are screaming for me to frame them, I have no idea where to hang them, but I must listen to the screaming.
Unfortunately there is no other stitching yelling at me, my heart just isn't in it lately. I spend my days typing on the computer redoing my thesis over and over, (4th (or is it the 5th) draft of the disscussion thank you). And after dinner I just feel like vegging in front of the TV. Part of the problem is the stuff I need to do (like the Green Darner) is complicated and requires lots of paraphenalia and thinking (confetti stitching,half stitches whatnot). Some one did ask me what I stiched Moon and Stars on...I used the fabric that it called for 28 ct. Silvery Moon Linen, I was just lucky that the store I bought the pattern had the fabric too.
and Here is a not quite finished Lavender Hill...I had the greens it called for 3052 and 3053 but when I went to stitch the lighter green it looked the same (which happens to me often due to some of the 30year old threads I have inherited), so tonight I will find a suitable green for the flower stems and the outer layer of the tree.
I loved stitching these, they were easy, quick, and fun.
Ok on to other things First: after finding that I tend to look over other blogger wishlists and send them stuff when I find it, I figure maybe I should make one up too, I have started another blog page just for my wish list and you can bop on over using the link in my sidebar... I figure it is a good time to do this anyway with my graduation on the horizon (it is far but it is there!)
Stitching bloggers Question of the Week: Do you stitch “over one?” If so, describe your experiences. If not, have you considered it? (See an “over one” diagram.) I have and do not mind it but do not prefer it. My first over one was an ornament that I did for an exchange. over 32. .I needed it to be smaller than the original specified. Now that I think about it ,all my over one stitching has been for ornaments. I don't think I could do a large piece that way.
