Having kitted up so many projects, I got busy sampling a few after taking down the tree and putting all the stuff away. Begone, Christmas Stuff! It was cold and windy today, so I stayed in and stitched and put my supplies in order. Here's Ice Boating, by Stoney Creek. I'm tarting it up with a heavy-handed (I'll admit) application of Kreinik and Glisson Gloss (Rainbow) threads.
Dazzling! (The sampler purists in the audience are shaking their heads in sorrow at my taste in projects here. That's ok.) Stitched on 34 count Legacy, one DMC (plus shiny strand) over two.
Here we have a terrible picture of a more traditional sampler. The colors are way off; IRL they're much, much nicer. This is "Yellow Birds Sampler" by The Sampler Company.
I'm stitching it using an on-the-fly conversion of GAST and WDW for the recommended DMC, one over two on 40 ct Lakeside in Bittersweet.
Here's an old friend--"Dorothy's Garden," by Hands to Work.
I've been working on this quite a while--I'd love to finish it this year. I worked on the grass this weekend--a bit tedious but pleasant enough, especially since this grass doesn't have frozen blobs of snow on it. I'm using AVAS on 32 count Lakeside, I think.
Elvis says that Pink's butt looks like a big snowball in this photo.
Happy week ahead!
