Hi everyone. Just a quick note to show the next project. Do you remember when Connie sent me a bunch of older PS Santa charts? She said to keep what I wanted, to share the rest, and several stitchers were thrilled to receive a chart they've been searching for. She is the epitome of the stitching sisterhood. Yesterday I received another envelope from her.
There are some other things going on that I haven't mentioned and I really have no ambition or focus to delve into the chart stash. What follows with linen choice is even worse. So when I saw this 2011 design come out of the envelope, I felt relief because I love it, it's small, and there was a piece of linen hanging over the sofa arm that was the perfect size. Thank you so much Connie. For everything. I will follow your example and offer the charts to others in a Pay it Forward giveaway after stitching is completed.
This linen was a gold color and rather than look for another piece in the color I would like, I got out the Rit and started playing. Purple erases yellow, blue makes it green, a drop of red erases green, so it took three different dips to get a neutral brown. I would rather do that when I find the correct size than cut a larger piece. Not sure if it's 30 or 32. I'm using two strands of floss for the design elements and one thread of black for the letters. I also changed the key's color and will take out the watering can in the lower left and spread out the letters instead.
I made my posts on Primitive Stitchers and have no idea from there. I see that some comments are answered but I don't know how, and not sure about the friends. When I signed on several years ago, I received all these invites from people I don't know and when I emailed a few, found out that they never invited me. Anyway, when my mind is not preoccupied, I will learn more.
Have a great day.
Thanks for visiting.
