I’ve been working on three things lately that are showing progress. I know I’ve been posting mostly finishes, but I’ve been stitching on a lot of unfinished things too!
First of all, I decided, Miss Mousie needs a friend RIGHT AWAY! I started Hedgie and he will be done this week probably.
Hedgie will be a good friend to protect her from Minerva the Owl.
I’ve been working on the Birthday Tart by Plum Street. I have discovered that between the colors in the photo and the wonky dye lots I must have that mine is not going to look like the picture. Phooey. Because I really like the colors in the photo! My Piney Woods for example is VERY dark, and my Sarsaparilla is brown.
Well, I changed one thread. I subbed in Antique Rose for the Sarsaparilla because my Sarsaparilla is just plain BROWN without those rosy shades in it and I don’t want brown flowers.
I hope it turns out ok and I like it.
Finally, I have been working on Leaping Cat. I am not loving stitching it. I should have used 1 thread instead of 2 but I can’t go back now! Lesson learned.
When I went back to stitching after a sanity break (ALL THAT GRASS-which I redid twice in certain sections to make the colors flow!) I switched needles to a thinner one. It is working a bit better. I want to get this done this month. Because, I love it, right? And I am a bit tired of having it be a WIP.
