I decided to have a stitchy Sunday yesterday, and just as I was about to pick up the Sunflower Bellpull, something started calling to me from the cube room studio.
This is Summer at Cherry Hill by Brenda Gervais.
I purchased this quite a while ago and had never stitched it because of my linen selection. The chart calls for 40ct Sand from Picture Thus Plus. For some reason, I must have been feeling very very brave at the time, because the piece of linen that was cut for this was 36ct.
Despite my very best attempts with several different magnification contraptions, I just couldn't see the holes very well. I was just starting to fret about this when I remembered that I had purchased a fat quarter of 28ct Wren, and if I could only remember where I put it...
The Wren is actually perfect for this, in my humble opinion, and looks even better with the threads than the Sand would have.
So I plopped myself into the Happy Chair and enjoyed my Play Time with this until it was time to hit the hay.
Nothing on the agenga today. I might try a little spiffing and fluffing to occupy a minute or two, but methinks I might also take a book to the pool and float about a bit in the sunshine. Tomorrow will be filled with labwork and doctor visits, so I might as well enjoy some peace and quiet.
At Cherry Hill!
