When Vicki Hastings of Cross-Eyed Cricket Collection talked to us at the Silver Needle retreat she mentioned that one of her favorite designs was A Walk in the Woods. I stitched this a long time ago and decided to rummage through the sewing room closet and get it out. I like to change the needlework hanging around the house every once in a while. When I got A Walk in the Woods out, I noticed that it was dated 1989, 24 years ago.
I like the motifs on this one. It is done on 28 count linen.
I always worked on 28 count up until I went to Celebrations and was exposed to higher count linens.
I have made very little progress on the shell of Mermaid's Treasures. I keep getting lost. I'm going to put in some guidelines. I may just work on the side that has some shell design and a mermaid. That would be easier. You can't work on this when you are tired, that's for sure.
I got the hat on the mummy pumpkin and started the leaves.
Good progress on this one.
It is a lovely day here. It's almost a shame to be inside. Almost.
