More Peaceful Paradise

I've been a bit under the weather, so I was relieved to be able to stay home for an ice storm on Friday. I worked quite a bit on this.

Since the worst of the storm never materialized, I slipped out in the afternoon to my LNS to see the Nashville releases and found this. I love it--perfectly springy, yet unusual. And again, note the two bunnies on the hill. It's called "Windy Hill House" and is by Praiseworthy Stitches. It calls for 32 ct Tarnished Silver by Lakeside Linens and Crescent Colors threads. Fortunately, my LNS couldn't kit this up because they didn't have the right color of linen. There's a companion piece also (actually I think there are four pieces in this series) which the LNS had called "Skating Party" which is just as quirky looking. I'll have to get that one also. Check it out online--I think ABC stitch has it. It calls for a greenish Lakeside Linens piece of fabric and Sampler Threads.

Whew--saved! I'll have to put off kitting it up, which means I'll keep working on Peaceful Paradise and all the other things I've started, including, finally, Karen's neighborhood RR. I had chosed another design, but the soft pink-brick color of her fabric deserved something more complementary, so I'm using a Birds of a Feather chart called "Peace" (again the Peace theme!) which has a lot of red and black in it. I'm using Sampler Threads for it.

Still not feeling great this morning, I dragged myself off to my accounting class and slept through much of the lecture on reporting statements of cash flows. Don't know if the instructor noticed, although it's a small class. After class I came home and stitched a bit and then slept for a while this afternoon while the two little guys snored in their boxes.

Hi Glenna...Praiseworthy Stitches has some cute and quirky pieces. Perhaps your bunny meter is pegged as far as cross stitch goes, but did you happen to see Workbasket's new little bunny? It's cute and quirky!
Hope you're feeling better today. That strain of flu that all the flu shots aren't touching is pretty nasty...could that be the culprit?

Love the stitching progress. And I also noticed this PS Nashville release - it's gorgeous. :D

I noticed those pieces by Praiseworthy Stitches too - I loved them, but was able to resist for now. I hope you can keep resisting the flu bugs, there are some nasty ones going around.

That is such a cute design, and Skating Party is really cute too! Love how your stitching is coming along! Hope you're feeling better soon - I always hate when I feel so crummy I nod off in class or somewhere.
