Valentine's day is sure coming around quickly this year. I stitched up this little "Snow Fun" piece from The Floss Box for the occasion. Probably not meant to be a Valentine design, but that little heart in the hand of the snowman did the trick for me.
Both pieces were stitched on 18 ct hand-dyed Aida from Sassy's Fabbys. I seem to have a ton of this and it's great for little cards.
Also finished a quilt square for a WOCS quilt, "Months of the Year". This quilt filled up quickly with stitcher sign-ups, and July was one of the few months left. Anyone remember this Country House SAL from 2007, by Maryse? The charts have mostly been sitting in a freebie folder on my computer waiting for the right occasion. Doesn't that chaise lounge look inviting right about now? Only trick part was figuring out how to do a lower case "y" that didn't go below the line. Since this was a French pattern, and the original text was "Juillet", there was no need to leave space. I think mine works ok. This is stitched on 25-ct bone Lugana over two... a totally relaxing stitch. And it just now occurs to me that I haven't stiched my name and state on this piece. Blogging is so helpful for jogging the memory!
