Who gets into these funks of not posting a darn thing for weeks and then has a ton of stuff to share? THIS GUY! I think what I will have to do is bullet-list stuff for you with the photos. Part 1: Cross stitching
1. Got my Early Ornament Exchange yesterday from the HOE group, Malinda stitched me Emmanuel for Plum Street samplers...isn't it great?! In other news I sent mine off and will post it when it gets to its destination.
2. I finished the black outlining shading of Grand Old Duke, I will be filling in color next:
3. Most of my stitch time in April was taken up by the EGA 17th century mystery sampler I told you we were all doing together. See band 2 had 2 new(to me) stitches...the montenegrin and the detatched buttonhole (center of the flowers) We are working from the bottom up, which is a bit weird. But in overachiever news, I was the only one to finish my band by the May meeting. Booyah!
4. and lastly, you all remember the needle book I stitched for a giveaway, well here it is finished (NOT FINISHED BY ME, I could never do this good a job) in its basket with some other smalls awaiting their friends.
Part 2 will have all the non stitch related stuff in my life. Part 3 will be a special post about my crafty woodworky husband.
