It is a beautiful day outside. This weekend we are supposed to be in the 60's. A warm reprieve in the month of November is glorious. Most of the leaves are off the trees now.
I finished the Cabinet of Curiosities pin cushion off yesterday. I think it turned out fine. I like the silk velvet, it doesn't have the usually problems that velvet has and is rather sturdy.
Now I have three little ditties for my casket.
It is a good exercise to try different techniques and different threads. I want to get a couple of books of William Morris cross stitch designs. I should just try working with my PCStitch program to see if I can take a design and turn it into cross stitch. It is kind of frustrating as I don't know what I am doing but that is how you learn, trial and error.
I finished the top of the seat cushion for the chair. The bottom of the seat cushion just needs the backstitch around the edge and the bird's eye, then I can whip those two guys together and mount them on the chair. But tell me why people make bird's eyes yellow???
Then I can start on the head cushion. I like the little scissors fob. That would be fun and quick to do. I may do that this afternoon.
