More Progress

Spent several days working on this piece....I think it's coming along nicely. I've decided when I hit the letters that are my initials I will do them in a 3rd color. I may incorporate the year in one of the spaces too.

Neat Country Stuff

This is one of those charts I've had forever and while perusing my stash I pulled several things I've been wanting to do for a long time so here it is all stitched up.

Stitching something twice....(on purpose)

I have another commission piece only she wants 2 of them, no problem as it's a fun one to stitch. I've already done this one years ago for myself and enjoyed it.....Here is the first one just finished this morning. I will work on something else for a bit then do the 2nd one.  The fabric is the called for grey, only I used linen instead of aida. It looks blue in the picture here though.

The last stitching wasn't bad on this....there is minimal backstitching and french knots so once I finished the x-s it didn't take long to finish.

Still more time needed

I am still working on this piece....I should have been done but decided to start a couple of other newly commissioned pieces but then picked this back up. Lots of green to fill in the the backstitching(minimal). Ignore the top left corner....the cabinet I had it hanging on decided to shine through so there is a spiderweb effect. (couldn't have accomplished that if I had tried on purpose lol)

I can't believe our crazy weather....apparently our track meets aren't meant to be comfortable this year....the majority of them have been rainy and cold....we did have 1 in 80 degree weather this week but we are back to 40's and rain...but at least the snow(knock on wood) is missing us. 9" of rain in April....over 1" today so far. Won't complain about that as we are high and dry.  Helllooo, it's May.
