The piece you see below was actually stitched on 20 count linen which is the color of off white, I think it's Legacy Buttercream. So I have no idea why this photographed like this, but anyway, it is going to be a pillow about 13" x 9". It's the Lesson #2 of the Summer Schoolhouse Lessons in Abededarian and stitched with Weeks Dye Works pearl cottons. I'm doing the other part of Lesson #2 now to have the set. Actually I'm stitching the entire series in 20 ct. Love stitching on it. Don't always love having to switch all the colors out, but one must do what one must do. Since I didn't have the fabric home for the matching pillow I started another of the Blackboard ornaments from Hands on Design.
I think I said I was going to start on Halloween....don't know what happened to that thought....maybe after Lessons #2 I'll get to it. And of course, I still have my needlepoint to finish before Jamboree. God help me I just keep putting it aside. But I have every intension of getting it done. (I also realize the road to hell is paved with good intensions..uh, oh think I'll get to it before September, just to make sure I get it done in time). Well I'm at work so I'll get back to it, plus I need to cut some fabric to start working on Lesson #2's other pillow. Hope you are enjoying your stitching as much as I'm loving mine. Have a great day!
