How was your weekend for stitching with IHSW? Mine was not good.
That darn cold I caught on the 11th kicked my butt last week. The worst part was the dry cough. I always get the dry cough and can't stop coughing for days and I wind up with little sleep. I have no patience as the Cold can last from 7-10 days and the cough can last for two weeks. The cold has left and the cough is almost gone. I am grateful as I get hit with this type of cold/flu every three years or so.
I joined the Halloween Ornament SAL 2013 blog. Each month they have a theme that you stitch along to using your own pattern, Fabric and Floss. Then towards the end of the month you can post your finish. Your not obligated to stitch each month you can choose which month you would like to take part.
January is pumpkins. I chose this design from Just Cross Stitch Halloween Ornament Issue from 2010. The designer is Casey Buonaugurio. The design I chose to stitch is Jack O Lantern. I still need to finish it into an ornament. I have the perfect backing for it.
This was stitched on Aida. I am not sure what exact color it is. It is orange with brown flecks through out the fabric. A long time ago someone gave this color along with purple and green to me. I can't find the name anywhere.
The other little stitching I accomplished was on Blue Ribbon Designs-Beauty in Simplicity.
This fabric likes to wrinkle easily. I have never had my fabric do this. Anyone else this happens to? These are the updates I have this week. I hope to get more stitching done this week. Stay warm, dry and cool where ever you live. I hope you stay healthy and have some great stitching this week.
