October’s block #10 is finally finished! As always using the scarey funky DMC conversion. I did change the cow’s nose & udder to 352. The coversion was some god-awful orange. Yes, the cow is outlined in some god-awful green; but I’ve got standards. Apparently they involve orange noses. Live & learn.
Picture the whole shebang:
Working towards finishing the Pirate Quilt’s backing today. I’ve got the fabric (thank the quilting gods that Kona cottons are very consistant and the black I found is a perfect match for the black already used), just need to work out the maths and labeling. Fingers crossed for a Friday drop off for quilting…
Things I Wished I Stitched Thursday:
Oh how do I love this?! Tutorial here! This is more along the lines of I wish I had time… I’m swamped with commitments (so you know, feel free to make me one lol). Two Christmas exchanges, 2 more blocks of HoHRH, MiraRR, Winter Rose, Sampler Quilt, Pirate Quilt and whatever else I’m forgetting. All of this I MUST or really want to have finished by the first week of December. <insert insane cackling>
Two more things, does anyone have the Shepherd’s Bush freebie Be Jolly ? I’ll love you forever if you could email me a .pdf, .jpg, or even snail me a copy. And my evil plan to become the Empress of Cross Stitch ™ & Attention Whore Extraordinaire ™ (does Paris Hilton already got the trade mark on this?) is firmly in motion. Go see me in the latest issue of The Stitchers Voice.
