Gentle Friends sorry to not have posted yesterday, but I came back to a pile o'work and just dove into that....
It was a lovely looong weekend - the weather was just beautiful, bright, breezy and on the cool side until Sunday, it drizzled most of the day which carried over to Monday, which was alright.
I finished up the Christmas piece I have been working on, what a super fun piece to work on - here's a snap -
Lizzie Kate "ABC's of Christmas"
36ct "Meadowlark" using the included floss
5/1 - 5/25
Although I really enjoyed this piece, I do have a couple of thoughts... This would be a much nicer piece if there were a few more floss colours included, such as a gold or yellow, another shade of blue and another green would be nice. Why this is a kit and not just a chart is beyond me, since I stitched this on a higher count linen I didn't need all the floss that came in the kit - and I already had the floss colours in my stash. Overall it's a quick stitch and if and when i re-stitch it I will deal with the floss changes then.
After finishing up "ABC's" I was kind of at a loss as to what to pick up, so to the WIP basket I went and pulled out AaHRH - all I had completed was the border of the top section, I though I would work some on the Pumpkins..... here's a snap...
Sorry about the wrinkles, but you get the idea. This will be an ongoing BAP and I look forward to the stitching!!
I have a bunch more pictures to share from the weekend so stay tuned!!
