Project # 2 of the 15-day Crazy January Challenge is "The Gingham Dog & the Calico Cat" by Carriage House Samplings. It's not the large project I imagined starting today, because I'm still gathering the parts and pieces. That's okay, though; I've sprinkled smaller projects through the Challenge so that I'm not completely overwhelmed.
I'm stitching it in the charted NPI colors on a small piece of Lakeside from my stash in 40 count maritime white, I think. It's a fun stitch, and the colors are more true to this photo than the photo of the CHS cover art. [Edited to add: I have made a mistake in the border, but I am not a perfectionist when a mistake can be concealed or worked around. Because I don't think it detracts, I'm leaving it as is. If you look at the cover art and my "model," you'll see what I mean. Fortunately, such things don't drive me nuts. I'll call it customization.]
My updated Crazy 15 list:
1. Christinia Cathcart, The Samplar Workes, 32 count mystery fabric, AVAS silks
2. The Gingham Dog & the Calico Cat, Carriage House Samplings, 40 ct LL, NPI silks
I got this Happy Meal animal yesterday. You can indeed get apple slices instead of fries--they're called apple dippers, and they're delicious--crisp and cold, served with a little container of caramel sauce.
Here are some of my stitching buddies, cheering me on (well, snoring me on, maybe). You can see some of my stitching bags spread out on the sofa.
Off to do some cleaning and a little more stitching. Happy evening and see you tomorrow with Project #3!
