*Note! I made a typo in my last post. CaHRH is being stitched 1 NPI thread over 2 on 40ct. linen. Sorry about that. *
Don’t say a word. I forgot to grab a picture of Mom’s quilt all finished.
Here it is home from the quilter’s.
The binding is scrappy, made from jelly roll leftovers. And of course, if you make binding the cat will show up.
And this is just enough binding. I thought I had made something like 10-12″ extra. Nope, what you see on my fingers is all the excess. Anyway, I’ll ask Mom to send me a picture of it when she gets it. I washed it once before I mailed it and it turned out so crinkly and cute.
We went to see Lois (The Corpse Flower) at the HMNS butterfly exhibit. I’ve been wanting to go there & Lois was the perfect excuse. She wasn’t blooming yet when we went but it was still fun.
Difficult teenager & difficult flower; a still life. (and he refuses to get his haircut, i just wish he’d brush it occasionally)
A few snaps from inside the butterfly exhibit.
On the cross stitch front, I have been stitching – but pretty much mostly exchanges. I do have a picture from a new start (like I needed one) Celtic Band Sampler by Homespun Samplars. Stitched 1 thread of DMC over 2 on Picture This Plus 40ct. in Ale.
