Good evening, everyone. I spent the weekend crafting and stitching. I was hoping to go antiquing, but our weather has been rainy and dreary, definitely not fun conditions for antique shopping.
Instead I stopped by my local craft shops for some yarn, Polyfil, linen, and threads.
Yesterday I finished crocheting some gifts for the holidays and today I stitched on two patterns. I usually try not to start a new project while I have a WIP going, especially when it is another 'large' pattern, but I actually enjoyed the change in my stitching routine.
This morning I stitched on Sampler 4 Saisons. Here is where I left off after 'frogging' and stitching last time.
Here was my progress by lunch time. Not bad for a couple of hours of stitching. Last weekend, I went to Michael's and Joann's to check my DMC 498 thread. Sadly, nothing matched it so my plan is to stitch as much as possible with my remaining three skeins and then finish the rest of the tree with new skeins.
This is my progress after lunch and this evening on Sweet Christmas by Cuore e Batticuore. The only fabric I could find in a big enough size was Wichelt-Permin in 32ct lambswool. Some of you know that I HATE this linen. It is stiff and coarse and I swore I would never use it again, but beggars can't be choosers when you live in town nowhere near a cross stitch store.
Don't worry though, I plan on sticking with this project :)
Until next time >___<
