So there I was, minding my own business, when I decided to start something in the cross stitch department. I've always loved designs by The Drawn Thread, and after much futzing about, I decided to start Moonlight Garden. I had visions of this one stitched and framed next to the dining room window that looks out on my own little garden, but alas, it was not to be. After about two hours of squinting through my reading glasses, I decided that this would have to be a project for another day. Apparently, my eyes have decided that they would prefer a little more canvas work at this juncture, so I happily obliged.
This is from the WIP pile...it's Laura J. Perin's Lily of the Valley Collage. I think I might push on through with this one until it's completed. (How many times have you heard me say THAT before?) It's just lovely, and I even have the silk flower to apply to the middle portion of the canvas. (If you recall, I got a wild hair and decided that I would fixatate silk flowers onto the middle of these flower collages, so we're now two for two.) (The first one was the daisy. Remember?)
Storms have ceased momentarily here in Hoosierville, and this week is quite lovely to behold, but I hear we're in for some more stickymess by the weekend. Swell. Just in time for me to slap on the big girl bike shorts and fire up the barbeque grill for the Official Stitchin' Spinster Sisters Stars and Stripes Celebration. Oh well, maybe Aunt Chrissy and I will suffer through some microwaved wienies instead.
Back to the Happy Chair! Woo Hoo!
