Zuni Sunset

February 28, 2017

I just could not wait for the CyberPointer meeting to begin on Thursday to begin the March program.  Tried to stitch slowly so I would not finish early……..failed miserably. Here is the finished project. As you can see I changed the design. Those who know me may not be surprised that I do change designs and more often colors. In addition to the design change I also changed the floss used for the sun and gold rays. I just wanted a little brighter gold for the sun. I think this is the first time I have attached a fetish. I am not sure I really like my results but it is not bad..

And then the mailman delivered a new project….complete kit. 😄 This is a small design by Toni Gerdes that will be the March program for my ANG CyberPointer chapter. The meeting starts next Thursday but I could not resist. This is such a bright design. A small project that I can do in days.

Off The Beaten Path

February 20, 2017

I have finally made some progress. It has been a busy couple of weeks. Time sure goes by fast the older you get. 

The background stitch was done with a single strand of floss and was a pleasure, non stressful stitching session. The beginning of some extra border looks good to me. Now I need to figure out what comes next.  I really want to get this done. Always excited for a new project..

The satin circle is being done with four strands of silk over a cardboard circle. I calls for two layers but I am sure it will take more layers before I am happy with the look. Too bad I do not have the perfect button. Circles are certainly a challenge.

Off the Beaten Path Progress

February 9, 2017

I finally found a few hours to sit and stitch. This project will go pretty fast if I can just stitch. The canvas is actually Sage green. It is interesting what my phone camera does to some colors.

Off The Beaten Path is a Carolyn Mitchell design that is made up of three panels. I am only doing the bottom panel. I just want a small counted project at this time. I have it started on a larger than necessary piece of sage green canvas and I am toying the idea of adding some extra border.

The first step on the border is tied oblong cross stitch. I ordered the kit for this so I have great threads. Soie Cristale by Caron is a lovely silk. It is 12 ply and the tied cross stitch is done in three ply. Laying silk is such a pleasure ❤️❤️

Tassels Progress

January 29, 2017

While on our trip to Yuma last week I managed to make some progress on Tassels. I stitched three out of four days. That might be a record. I took my favorite traveling stitch book “Stitches To Go” and spent much time looking for a suitable stitch for the two oblong tassels…….no decisions were made. I am probably making it too big a deal but selecting stitches is still my weak point.

No on to a new project while I continue to think about those tassels……😀

Christmas Candles Completed !

January 27, 2017

I took my Tassels project on our 5 day trip and made some progress. However today while catching up on laundry I sat down at my floor frame and finished my Candles. I was so close that I really wanted to finish something ‼️ Yeah. May have to add a background later but for now it is going in my famous stack for awhile.

I am ready to start a counted piece…don’t know which one. Get to search through my charts. 😌

Picture of Tassels in my next post.
