Finished stitching 'Pear Tree' Thursday night. Just plain lazy at photographing & posting. Really enjoyed this second in the series of ornaments by Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks. Had started it over one on linen. That was a major mistake! So, here it is on a miscellaneous piece of 16ct off-white aida.
Yesterday the mailman brought me the third of Diane's ornaments, 'He's A Flake'. Last night I waded through my fabrics to find an appropriate green. I hadn't really wanted to start purchasing more fabrics when I decided to stitch both the LHN Ornament SAL and the Bride's Tree Ornament SAL. So far the only one that looks good is an aida again. I really don't mind stitching on aida, particularly the higher counts. I am also searching for an appropriate chart to stitch for the second Bride's Tree ornament. February's theme is "Heart, true love, love of family".
A little update on my LHN "The Library". It's been a bit ignored while I've stitched ornaments.
Several quilting magazines have arrived in my mailbox lately. I read them, drooling over the new fabrics that have come out and it makes me itch to start a new project. Like cross stitching, I must resist the new while I try to finish my WIPs and UFOs. I envy those with boundless energy and ability.
