This week's stitching has resulted in two new finishes- Trilogy's Secret Garden and my ornie entitled Christmas Joy. The latter has actually been finished except for the straight stitches for awhile now. I've just been procrastinating and letting it sit while I got on with other things. Straight stitches and backstitching are my least favourite part of stitching. I know there are others out there who feel the same way !
With the finish of these two pieces came the start of another. At Creative Poppy I ordered a set of Helga Mandl's ornamental trees. I'm hoping to get a couple more of these done as Christmas gifts. You will recall my finish of her USA tree earlier. As you can see these are really quick stitches... fun ones too! I'm hoping like mad that I'm not going to run out of floss on this one. I'm using some hand-dyed I already had in my stash by Six Strand Sweets. When I got started it looked like I had a lot more than what has turned out to be the case. Keep your fingers crossed! As you can see this is the Merry Tree. I also have the Snow Tree all set to go.
The heat is finally upon us here in Chesterville. Heat by itself I can handle but the humidity has just been horrid. Thank God for central air! I hate running it too much because of the cost but this week I have my MIL visiting from Windsor. She's almost 90 and is really bothered by the humidity. I think she's entitled at this stage of the game!
The computer I use is in the room in which my MIL is staying so unfortunately my time is limited for posting right now. I'll check in again once she has returned home.
