I didn’t get as much stitching time in this weekend as I would have liked. I was secretly trying to work on my anniversary present for Eric. Luckily, he was busy enough with his own projects yesterday that he wasn’t paying too much attention to me! I am working on an album of our honeymoon photos from Rome. Since the first anniversary is paper, I thought it would be appropriate. I did stitch some on Mystery 9 though. I made a little more progress on my artichoke.
You can see I’ve done the placement stitches for the other three beds as well. I figure I will just complete each one as I go, rather than trying to skip back and forth between them. I just have the rest of the background to fill in, then the specialty stitches on this one. Oh, and the beads.
I received my Silkweaver Fabric of the Month order today, and both pieces are again beautiful. They sent me Bluebell, which is more a purpley blue, and Beignet which is a great neutral. I am so glad I signed up for this monthly shipment, maybe I’ll actually use these fabrics sometime! Tonight I’ll be stitching on my Just Nan RR. And I’ve heard the one I sent off has been received. Whew! I was getting a little anxious about that! Hope you’re having a great start to the week. Eric and I are keeping the Kleenex close by, everything is blooming!
I am grateful for secret projects.
