I have been doing some stitching. Not on what I SHOULD be stitching (ahem, Shores) but I just have no willpower sometimes when it comes to new, fun, and beautiful designs.
Barbara Ana Designs
32 ct Platinum Belfast/DMC floss
This was supposed to be stitched over 1 as a scissor fob but I don't do over 1 very well. I am thinking this will end up as a little pillow. I am a bit out of season but I couldn't resist all the fun colors and things in this design. The cauldron with green slime, the spiders with their creepy red eyes, the cute owl with candy corn hatpins! I just had to have this one. Had to!
Then....this mystery sampler kept popping up on your blogs. How could I resist when there is the word "Birds" in the title of the design? I decided not to spend the $ on the WDW flosses, I only had 1 of them in my stash and am doing my own DMC conversion instead. I have never converted a design this size to a different floss so I am hoping it turns out well. I like what I have done so far.
During this Memorial Day weekend please take a moment to remember those who have served and sacrificed so much for our wonderful country. I am enjoying this 3 day weekend and hope you are as well. Lots of stitching and sewing and gardening and grilling and spending time with family. Baby back ribs and turnip greens from the garden are on the menu today with watermelon for dessert. :o)
