So I decided to grab that very same bull by the b***s (er, I meant to say...horns), and I trotted up to the studio to put together a few projects for our SpringTide stitching pleasure.
I do like what the old lady's been working on, and I fully intend to bogart it for my apartment as a festive little pillow, but methinks she needs to add a little cross stitch to the mix.
First up is a piece that I know a lot of you out there in Stitchy BlogVille are working on right now. I kitted this one up and diagrammed it for Mom to do on one big piece of linen:
Next is a chart that Mom's had in her stash forever, but she's never been able to find the right piece of linen for it. Finally! Success! She found a piece of 32ct. Edinburg linen in "Sapphire Sky" which I think will be very very pretty:
This one is a new design from Shakespeare's Peddler. I love the saying and will probably ask Mom to do this one first. (I am envisioning a lovely chintz pillow for this one when completed, and I will proudly display it in the middle of my night night bed if she ever gets it stitched):
How could I not love a chart titled "A Mind Independent and Free"? I don't expect that this will ever see the light of day, but a pup can dream:
And finally, we have a lovely little piece that she could knock out in a weekend if she just planted her heiney in the Happy Chair and got to it:
After the housecleaning festivities, Mom did manage to get a few more stitches into the Love canvas. I'm going to push her to get this one done asap:
Now before you feel too sorry for my stupid mo-ther, you should know that my Aunt Chrissy came to the rescue and did almost all of the cleaning without one single complaint. See how nicely she stacked all of my toys?
Well, that's it for today. Thank you for visiting with me, and please come again soon. Now if you'll excuse me....there's napping to be done and I need to get right to it.
With love from your pal,
