Lots of stuff so I’ll run it down in order.
Very nicely packaged, with a huge tote bag to hold it all. And it arrived on the date they said I could expect it. Good shop, and they charged me actual shipping. 🙂
Sunday, first off I had to spend just a bit this morning finishing off my replacement WNRR.
Sorry, pic came out a bit blurry. It’s taken from Winter Cove – By The Bay Needleart. I’m not overly thrilled. I mean I do like it, but the colors they are not what is on the chart photo. I mean there is so much difference I wonder if DMC was what she used in the model. And there is some shadowing under the bunny in the chart picture that is not charted. It turned out nice, but it didn’t turn out like the picture. The blank spot is where a ginormous tree lives. I haven’t decided if the happy huge tree will live on my RR. For now it’s blank, it’ll be easy enough to add when it comes home or to fudge the space then.
The one thing I didn’t realize until I was almost done with this, it bears a resemblance to a house I lived in when I was really little.
No picture of the house, just a painting that was done of it 15 years or so before I lived there.
Went out today to the drug store (cough drops etc… yes still sick, not really improving but not getting worse either… I think) and my Valentine’s Day present jumped into my arms.
Meet Wolfie and his baa. They sing. What do they sing? Why Hungry Like The Wolf of course. I Had To Have It. (found at Walgreens)
Then while watching this…
I didn’t stitch a whole lot on this…
On the left I did stitch the over one butterfly, and that took like 4 times longer than it would’ve if I’d stitched it over two. That was the first half of the game. All the rest was second half and a little bit after the game.
I love how the butterfly turned out. You can see the sprat stitch or whatever it’s called that I was bitching about last Sunday. I’m still not even liking it, I’ll pull it out next Sunday. I stitched most of the big flower and 2 acorns.
On the right side just a tulip and a star. This time out I only stitched on the part I had planned = plain cross stitch. I will be taking Karen’s advice and writting down a plan before I work on speciality stitches again.
