Haven't felt like doing much stitching or crafting lately. I guess it's just time for a break. Or else it's because I have been watching "Weeds" on DVD and it's taking my full attention. I did manage to finish a couple of cards.
I was browsing through the Aug, 2015, JCS magazine and noticed a design I had skipped over completely on my first pass. It was too Christmasy for the types of things I stitch. But when I looked closer, I saw that I could extract part of the design and make a pretty cool card. It's the center of the Quaker Medallion by Giulia Manfredini. I think the linen is 32 count HDF Pecan Butter or Bunny Brown from back in the day. I wasn't expecting the cut-out window to look so much like a "D". I guess I need to find a Diane, Dina, Doris or Danielle to give it to since it's much too girly for a Dan, Dean, David, or Dick.
For those of you planning a Halloween getaway, I think there is still room left at "Witch Inn" by Homespun Elegance if you dare to spend the night. This design has been patiently waiting to be stitched for a year.
Both pics seem kind of blurry. Too much light? Not enough? Shaky hands? Whatever....
