A lady selling pies at the Farmer's Market this morning was wearing her winter coat! Okay, it is a bit cooler today - but not that cold.
I dug out my William Morris books and paraphernalia.
Wow, there are a lot of possibilities for using his designs on a casket. The best idea I found was from William Morris Stain Glass coloring book.
I could trace this design onto fabric and embroider it or I could try to change this into a cross stitch chart.
This is a perfect design to try and color it in with colored pencils to see how it might look. One of the books I have actually has a chart for this strawberry thief design. I want to try out a small piece of it just to see if I like it. But then the question is, what count linen do I use? The charts I have are really for needlepoint and meant to be done on a much larger count than 32. How do I get the size that I want? Will overdyed floss look good? I have to figure out the details.
I worked a little on Needle Nut. I got all the words on one side done and now all I have to do is the background. This is going quicker than I thought it would.
I put a few stitches into the Cherished Stitches Limited Edition kit. I have a big red flower to do.
I didn't get the oilcloth tote sewed together. I guess I was lazy or distracted. Maybe today. I didn't realize until I cut out the oilcloth that the fabrics are different from the lining. They will all go together anyway.
I probably won't post tomorrow as I will be at the Sue Spargo class all day. I'll take my camera and tell you all about it. Hopefully she doesn't know that I called her bird butt ugly.
