I know I have a lot of WIPs in the works, and obligation stitching to do. But after getting back from the stitch-in over Memorial day Weekend I just have project after project yelling at me to stitch them and ignore the others. First up is a kit I purchased at the stitch-in from Catherine Jordan who had a booth there: the Quaker Necklace. This is the first time I have worked on 40 ct. (over one at that!) The instructions said to do half stitches over the denser areas, but I did not read that till I was already half way done. So the whole thing is full stitches. I also changed some of the color choices because there was no blue on the one side and I wanted it to be more colorful and balanced.
and as i mentioned before we got a kit made epecially for us. Sara was asked to stitch it over one to model it for the stitch in and it looked great...so I stitched on that this past week and will create a needle book out of it too:
This was so easy I pulled out the kit we got 2 years ago and am stitching it over one, that should be done in another few days.
In other news my baby girl is three years old., we had a great birthday party in our backyard this past saturday, the best one so far!
Those of you on blogger, have you noticed all the new design options? I love so many of them i may be switching around my blog all the time!
