The colors in the 2nd photo are a little washed out. The gold borders shows up better in real life 🙂 It’s fun to stitch now that I’ve figured out the secret to using the silks (dampen them and make sure to use my stitcher’s lotion). I did have to frog a couple of times because the chart has an “x” next to a “+” so now I know to pay better attention 😉
Next up is Peacock Tapestry. I’m using a random generator code on my spreadsheet and it has spoken.
I still need to put my Santa collection away and take down my stitching tree, then M and I are headed out to a movie and the home improvement store, so the stitching will have to wait until this afternoon. He needs some stuff to get his bikes stored, and I’m hoping it’ll take him most of the afternoon to get that sorted so I can stitch guilt free.
I’m almost finished with my 2012 stitching “goals” list so I’ll probably be posting that tonight.
Before I forget, here’s my Christmas present from M. I love the ideas I’ve been getting from Pinterest!
