Country Cottage Needleworks
32ct natural linen with polka dots
Stitched along with Miss Priscilla and Miss Chelsea...The Real Housewives of Cross Stitch.
Threads used are different than what's charted:
GAST : Dried Thyme, Chamomile, Dark Chocolate
WDW: Blue Jeans
CC: Roasted Chestnut, Peanut Brittle
RG: Sparkle Braid SK06
Buttons: Jessee James scrapbook embellishments from the amazon
(They had loopy things on the back that I had to snip off with my little bead cutters.)
I'm sorry that you cannot see it in my craptastic photo, but the snow sparkles! I highly recommend Rainbow Gallery Sparkle Braid for sparkly snow, but be sure to use Thread Heaven on it to reduce the amount of money you have to put in your swear jar.
I am hoping to finish this using a combination of techniques from Miss Vonna, Miss Danielle, and Miss Priscilla....stay tuned! It will either be gorgeous or will be headed to the land of Craft Day Gone Awry.
1:00 appointment today and then home to work on the Prairie Schooler January. My plan is to work on it until the end of the week, play with my Wendy Moore class piece this weekend, and then pick up Red Velvet Cake for February!
Hope you are well. I am...hungover and still surly today, but keeping my distance from polite society and just letting it pass. Meds are changing like crazy at dialysis and methinks this has thrown me into another well for a minute. I know they've been giving me a crap tone of Venofer, which is basically iron, so maybe once my stores get boosted I'll start to feel a little better.
Buzzy and Beepy were fighting because one of my lines completely clotted off, and Midge was just feeling her oats and decided to scratch the living heck out of my good arm. We gave them all a good talking to on the way out last night, so hopefully they will all be better behaved tomorrow. I am also going to switch up my playlist to something a little more soothing, and spend more time watching the Flosstubes rather than sit and fret about big hard things.
So that's the plan...just be a patient and a stitcher and nothing else.
I hope that your corner of the world is less fraught with big hard things and that you are well and safe and warm and comfortable and dry. Come tell me all about it!
Oh, and P.S. Thank you, dear Blogger for fixing yourself overnight. I'm sorry I ever doubted you and for all of the rotten things I thought about you...
