A Little Stitchin'

  Gentle Friends, stitching away on Christmastide here's a snaperoo...


... the house looks a bit wonky but that's just because I didn't straighten it up.  I've made one change so far...  the window panes called for the darkest brown for the fill colour.  I thought that's too much brown so I looked around in the NPI stash and found a nice dark charcoal colour and no am very happy with the results.

I was digging around in my stash and found three parts of a series from LHN called "Farmhouse Christmas."  They are "Horsin' Around," "Little Red Barn" and " Grandpas Pick-up."  I think I started to collect them and became less enamored of the series as it progressed so I only got the first three charts.  But, there might be someone out there that would like these three charts... If you'd like to have them please leave a comment on this Post and I'll have the old Hag Claw pick a winner this weekend - no fuss no muss.  Make sure I can get in touch with you if you win.

  1. Nice progress, like the windows. I have been known (only once) to frog stitching because I thought I had done something wrong. Only to discover my fabric was not straight in the hoop! Be well.

  3. I'll remember your charcoal window trick, because I, too, have found windows too dark as designed.
    I would love to have the 3 LHN Christmas charts.

  4. Edgar, I have all nine charts and am currently working on them. Will send you a picture when I'm finished and if you've changed your mind by then, I'll send you all the charts.

  5. Very neat stitching, I like this design and how you have changed the floss colour. I often choose a very dark grey or brown for backstitching on a design as sometimes black seems too harsh. I would love to take a LHN Christmas chart off your hands.

  6. I really like the color change on the windows. I am finally changing colors when I stitch. I always stitched what the chart suggested. Have a great week. I would love to stitch the LHN Christmas Charts.

  12. I'm not entering the giveaway, I just wanted to take a moment to say how much I enjoy your blog. Stitching, baking, and a slice of life in San Francisco! I've never visited, but would love to one day. I hope your holiday season is wonderful :-)

  13. I am really loving the colors on this one Edgar...Yours look so much richer (and more appealing) than I recall seeing on the pattern photo. Generous of you to offer up the charts, but please do not enter my name....I have quite a few Christmas "littles" already. I am sure there are others who will make better use of them. ~Robin~
