I am having second thoughts about lawn#2 on Hampton Court. I think I need to take out the couching stitches. I think I pulled them too tight. They are distorting the design.
I started lawns #3 and #4. They are easy (so far!). Just satin stitch in three colors. Then there are angled stitches that will go over the satins.
It doesn't look like I got much done yesterday but I am working on a class project for March.
I was very surprised to get my Sampler and Antique Needlework magazine in the mail yesterday - just one day after getting Just Cross Stitch magazine. They should have put a more interesting sampler on the front.
They are published by the same company and I thought they came out in alternate months. Whatever. Again, I found something in SANQ that I would like to stitch. This so rarely happens. It is a bird from an antique booklet.
I have been waiting for The Attic to post the projects that are going to be taught at their seminar in November. I was considering making The Attic one of my trips this year. But I have taken one of the three classes already (and I consider this project my favorite all time stitch). One of the classes I don't care for. The third class is not really cross stitch but a lot of beads and what looks like eyelets. I'm having second thoughts about going to this retreat. So maybe I can go somewhere else? We'll have to see.
The plans for today are to finish up the stitching for the March class. I want to work on the caterpillar on Home Sweet Home. Then I should fix the couching stitches on Hampton Court.
I better get to work.
