Well, a lot has happened since I’ve last updated. I made a week and a half trip to my home state NC and visited with family and friends. A blessed trip to say the least, but I’m happy to be home again, comfy in my surroundings, and getting the wheels of creativity turning.
Current BAP: The Eagle project I am working on is dusted off and I’m plodding along with ferver. I want to get started on a new BAP and I can’t do that easily with this one parked in my large Q-snap now can I? Here’s the latest pic:
Vine Color block update: I’ve begun stitching on my FIRST cross stitch design. It is a unique and pleasant feeling to stitch your own design. This design is currently for sale at my Etsy page and I need a picture for the ad. Here is my progress so far,Sorry for the poor quality picture from my tablet. While a tablet is a fantastic addition to my stitchy time, taking pictures is certainly NOT her best feature. I’ll get a better final pic, outside, in the lovely light of the sun! I wish you could see how well the colors mesh and that the fabric is a lovely rich, dark peach color.
The FINAL of my birth announcement project is finished as well. The name turned out great and was a CHALLENGE. I incorporated my mother’s handwriting sample into the design to use for the writing:
Ok those are the quick updates…which brings me to EASTER. I’ve designed something to stitch for a bookmark and Bible cover for my small Bible. I measured out the fabric for the Bible cover, figured about how many stitches I’d have room for in a panel on the front, and came up with my own design. It’s not really the light, floral thing I had in mind but I think it’s a cute for Easter. So, in the spirit of giving, as Christ has taught, I am giving it to YOU. Happy Easter everyone. Here’s the link for the freebie design. Don’t forget to save the pdf file to your computer!
Now, I’ve while I’ve decided to leave the design in it’s SPRING colors, I wanted a darker, more olive look for my Bible cover to match the fabric I’ve chosen, so here are the colors I’m using:
So, what have YOU been up to in your stitchy life? How do you balance your stitching with the need for sunshine, exercise? What’s been on your mind? Comments are welcome and I hope you’ll share a thought or two. Thank you for reading and again, happy Easter!
