Plum Street Samplers, Hares' Winter which was a fun stitch and just the right small project to pick to get me back to stitching again. I love the Hares and have done one other on large count linen which I loved a lot. But this time I decided to go with 28 ct. Country Mocha just to make it easy on me. I used the colors recommended and the only change I made was I used Mill Hill Petite Black Beads for buttons and eyes, and I added Turkeywork to the scarf for the fringe. Then because February was right around the corner I had to do something for February and what better than Brenda Gervais, Holiday Hoopla-Valentine. Stitching these small projects is helping me get my stitching mojo back. This was only a few hours stitch, but my stitching room is torn up, well not torn up but packed with everything out of my bathroom as they are renovating it so that I couldn't find the oval pedestal frame I wanted to use, because I couldn't even get in the stitching room. So I looked at some of my favorite hiding places in my living room where I keep some of my display pieces and came up with a red tart pan the correct size. Voila...project finished. I used a light pink Weeks Dye Works linen and changed the red dress to a deeper red from Weeks, (went with the pink linen better) but the rest of the colors are the ones listed on the chart.
I also got West End Frames to make a patriotic frame for Shepherd's Bush Flag Box which has been sitting in my guest room for about 4 years waiting to be completed and since we carry the Jill Rensel mat I pulled that to use. I'm trying to get projects stitched, but not finished, out of their drawers and get some of them to the finisher. Looks better than sitting in the drawer in the guest room. Love it!
I also gave up and had West End also make a white frame for the Brenda Gervais Peppermint Pals because I'm tired of trying to come up with an idea. Without the use of my stitching and craft room, I'm unable to look for things, so here it is for now. I'll update should I ever get it revised. I can always change that out anyway, but at least it's out of the house.
Now I'm back to Brr...Berry. Although after the weekend I've got a couple of projects I'm thinking of starting. That's always a good sign. But I'm halfway through Brrr...Berry so I'm hoping to get it done soon. Must get back to my stitching so I'll end here. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend no matter what weather you are experiencing. We have had rain for the past 24 hours and now it's blowing a gale....but by 5:00 p.m. that is suppose to be over. Sara let me take a wind day today so I'm home cleaning up the mess to get ready for game night with the grandchildren.
