It is Labor Day Weekend. We are going over to friends on Monday and I am taking a homemade apple pie. Otherwise, it is a regular weekend.
I got my Hand Dyed Fibers order yesterday. This is the premium floss monthly selection. I put all the colors for the American Sampler in those floss bags. I'd really like to try stitching a part of the sampler and see how it looks. The pattern calls for 25 count but I have been thinking of doing it on 32 count. I think I'll experiment with printing it out as if it were on 28 count and see if the designs elements fit where I want them to. I can compare it to the 32 count I already printed.
I am on the home stretch with the Strawberry Summer Sampler. Just the last section to do. I like it very much and am thinking of where to hang it.
I tried out the micron pen that came in the Cabinet of Curiosities kit 1 on some 40 count linen. I just drew a small flower. Now I have to do some embroidery and see how that works out. As you can see, the stem strayed a bit to the next thread. I don't know if that is a problem. I planned on doing either a chain stitch or a stem stitch. The pen is permanent so I really have to cover it up.
Today is the day that we get a new lesson for the Cabinet of Curiosities class. I've been checking every hour to see if it is out. Not yet.
This week I need to work on the Sue Spargo bird as the class is next Sunday. I've been gathering supplies: beads, threads, felts etc. It will be interesting.
