Yesterday I posted my September in the Joyful World SAL with the mistake (design feature) I made to the ground of the design. There has been no further progress on that as I rotated over to A Moment in Chalk.
Here is where I left off:
And here is where I am now - working from the middle out.
I'm now getting to use some of those luscious colors that drew me to this project.
For the upcoming Labor Day weekend, Gary and I are driving down to Boise, Idaho, to visit family. Saturday morning we'll be gathering at my sister's to watch the Boise State vs Louisiana-Lafayette football game and thinking about what I could take to stitch on. I'm hoping to have September done or nearly so. The black fabric on A Moment in Chalk makes that one a no-go! The Red Velvet Inscription is on 40 ct linen and the design requires too much counting to work on during a football game that I intend to give attention to! So I went in search of something in my stash that might work.
I found a couple of small designs.
The bag in the center is a kit I must have received as a gift at a stitching retreat at some point in time. I haven't opened it yet to see just who the designer is, but it looks pretty simple. The other is the Lizzie Kate Snippet in the upper right corner - again quite simple. I had a couple of the called for WDW threads, then just found some that come fairly close to the rest. I figured it's a small enough design to redo in DMC if I am not happy with this lot.
I'm also trying to find a design to use the floss that I won from Natasha several months ago. It's a 20 yard skein from Victoria Motto Sampler Shop in a gorgeous yellow shade called Buttercup.
I'm envisioning using it on a blue or blue/gray linen as blue and yellow is my favorite color combination. Thank you, Natasha, for this beautiful, generous skein of floss!!
Well, that'll about do it for today. As always, I wish you a wonderful day!
