Hi everyone! A little more progress on BOAF’s Happy Hearts Sampler to share. As you can see the alphabet is now complete and now it’s time to get back to some more hearts and start working on the number blocks that are along the bottom. I’m thinking that I might just break that up a little, do a number block and then work on another part and not just leave all that solid stitching to the end.
I seem to be on a roll with my intention to stitch more smalls in 2011. Now, it’s still January so this is probably more a case of January enthusiasm that will slowly fade out during February!!! Here’s EE&F’s Petit Exemplary #4 finished as a scissor fob. I stitched this little one on some 32ct cream linen and used the suggested DMC. It lists Anchor threads and I have the feeling that this was what it was probably originally stitched in as the windows and door on the house don’t seem to stand out as clearly as on the picture in the chart.
Stitching plans for this week? I want to concentrate on CHS AaHRH. I’ve stitched a little on the second block but I really need to just set aside some time to make major inroads into it rather than just a day here or there. I’ve my ornament for January stitched but not put together yet, plan is to do that this week too so I can report a finish before the end of the month.
Thanks for your lovely comments on my little pillow finish. I can’t wait to start the February one but I’m going to hold out and wait until the month starts. Thanks for your continued visits and comments and I hope that this week is a good one for everyone.
Until next time…..
