It’s been a while since I posted about my stitching so I want to get everything caught up at once.
Matrix Stitch A Long
I stopped doing this. I was paid to make this by a woman who wanted it as a gift for her boyfriend. She and said boyfriend broke up, and she said for me to keep the money since I did so much work on the first page. The first page was actually done early so she could see I was serious about getting it done for her. I haven’t continued with it because personally, I found the pattern boring.
Fox and Rabbit’s Changing Season’s Mystery Stitch A Long
I not only finished June’s design, I also finished July’s:
I was originally going to July’s design – the box on the left – in shades of purple, but I changed my mind when it came time to actually begin stitching. I’m glad I did because I think it turned out much better this way. Next month begins Fall, and I’ll be using oranges, dark reds and browns mostly, for the design. I’m curious to see what it’s going to be. The middle will most likely be a pumpkin, but we’ll see.
Here is where we were my last post:
Here is where I’m at now:
So much pops out when you take a step back from the piece!
I’ll be working this in rows from now on – 20 squares down and 50 squares across.
My Small Project
In my Update posted earlier this month, I mentioned I’d chosen to make a small as a gift for a wonderful woman who runs a Facebook group I’m in. Her name is Diane Gill, and she is the owner/operator/admin/main moderator for ☀️ Cross Stitch Kindness ☀️ Stash Donations & Rescue Party! She has rescued and rehomed more charts and threads and other cross stitch related items than I can count, and she does it for free!!
I decided to ask her what her favorite colors are, got her opinion on the flowers and finished the rest without her knowing exactly what I was making. I’ll be sending it to her with an envelope full of charts for her to rehome:
It’s a mini biscornu. I forgot to take a picture of one of the sides so you can see how it looks. This is great for a little pin cushion for her I think. 🙂 I made it using 18 ct whilte Aida, DMC floss in shades of blue and green and medium yellow for the borders. It’s about three inches at the widest. I used small blue beads instead of buttons the pattern called for because I couldn’t find any small enough.
I have a Dimensions project I’ll be using as my next small thought it won’t be as small as this one.
That’s all for my parade. 🙂 Next week, I’ll be posting my progress on Land Baby. I don’t think I’ll be starting my small this week. I’ll be too busy with work and Land Baby, but I will start it this month.
See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!!
