Last week I saw the first robins in our yard and some Canadian geese flying over, so spring must be coming! Of course, we have a winter weather advisory for tomorrow, with 4" to 7" of snow possible--this is Wisconsin after all!
At least I have my Swans & Shears SAL piece to look at, with its spring-like colors. Part four was released last Thursday, and this was my stopping point for that part:
I also worked on a small project that I've been wanting to do for a while now, which was to make a display for these amazing little dragon needle minders from Claybykim that I've been collecting for a few months now. I used a canvas that I found in the craft section at Target, stitched the words on a piece of fabric and then stretched the fabric over the canvas; the back is open so I can attach the magnets easily. Now it hangs in my craft room and I can admire these works of art while I stitch:
On the model stitching front, Rosewood Manor released one of the designs I stitched at Nashville Market this past weekend:
Also at Market Glendon Place released a new Halloween design that she first mentioned in her FB group last July (I've been waiting impatiently ever since!); it is called Spook Town Square, and it will be released in four parts, with the first part being the gazebo in the center:
The model is stitched on PTP Tarnish Cashel, but I have a piece of PTP Haunted Belfast that's the perfect size, so that's what I'll be using. Yesterday I pulled the flosses and fabric from my stash, so now I just need 12 more skeins that I didn't have on hand, a box to hold all the floss and the first chart:
It's a fairly large piece, so I'm hoping to have each part done before the next part comes out; might be wishful thinking, though!
Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
