Finally I am able to post pictures and words, blogger has not been good to me, I hope all problems are gone.
First up is the finished (finally) Romes and the Chicks this is a Leisure Arts booklet, I won the booklet and the started project at retreat, the blue hen was almost finished, and just a little of the red hen had been stitched, I love this pillow, I was not sure how I was going to finish the stitched project my wonderful Husband suggested a pillow for the kitchen chair it works, the chair that it is sitting on oin the picture is in the family room really it is the (man cave), insert giggles here.
This was stitched on fourteen count I donot use 14 count fabric, I just had to finishe this beauty, it only cost me a few dollars in the auction, lucky me.
Next is Shepherds Bush pattern I love this Forget Me Not this is a pattern from 1990, it is so amazing that some patterns never seem to go out of style, I did this on 28 count I the color of the fabric is a light mint green.
Next up is Blackbird Designs Home of the Brave, I started stitching on this on july third and finished it the evening of july fourth, you see I was home all day on the fourth and stitched for over 9 hours my dream came true, nothing but stitching, Mike did all the cooking and took care of clean-up how lucky am I.
I did this piece on 32 count I am not sure of the linen type, I did this on white I changed the colors from all red to blue and red I added star buttons, however I did make a stitching count mistake and did not discover this until I was done with all the letters, I think it still looks lovely.
I really wanted to do this for The fourth and all the freedoms we have in the beautiful Country.
I am going to frame it tomorrow, I am not going to use a mat I love the red frame, I found this in a second hand store at a whopping .50, you gotta love them second hand stores.
Today I am going to sit out on the porch and drink iced coffe and stitch, we donot have the air on because it is only 85 and sunny with a lovely breeze.
Blessings to you All.
