|Feather Your Nest|
by With Thy Needle & Thread
stitched on 32ct LL Magnolia
Feather Your Nest was a delight to stitch! It's pouring rain here today and as I look at my latest finish I'm reminded of a children's song by Raffi. I can't remember the title but I remember some of the words. "Robin in the rain, what a saucy fellow. Robin in the rain, mind your socks of yellow." What a saucy robin indeed!
With the arrival of my floss order, I spent some quality time with Peace Inside. This design has such pretty colours and I was sailing right along until I discovered an error. When I started stitches the small motif of vines at the top of the house they weren't matching up as expected. I still haven't found out where my mistake is. I've patched things for now but I'll stay away from this area until I can figure things out. I was just too tired last night to spend anymore time with it.
My next big project is for a friend. I'm sure many of you will remember With Thy Needle & Thread Mystery SAL, Birds of a Feather. Do I sense a theme here, lol? I'm stitching this one for my friend Trish . She has been so generous with her time in helping me sew my stitches into pillows. I asked if there was anything I could stitch for her and this was her request. This will be the first time I stitch on anything higher than a 32ct though. The charted fabric is 35ct so I will really need the use of my magnifier for this one. I figure it might be a little slower going at first too until I'm used to the count.
This one won't be travelling with me so I'm off to check out my stash for something that I can take to my Tuesday group, in the car, etc.
I 'll leave you with a short video of a saucy little fellow who stopped by to clean himself up and dry out his feathers at the tree outside my front window. Enjoy!!
