Thank you so much for tuning in to the Cozyegg flosstube/podcast! In this episode I share a small finish and what I’ve been working on since June. Music by Bensound.
Merry & Bright by Country Cottage Needleworks from the 2010 JCS Ornament Issue. I stitched this with similar overdyed cotton threads on 32ct Everglade by Silkweaver. I modified the design to leave out some elements and added/rearranged the packages. This was stitched for a friend’s daughter’s first married Christmas and my friend is sending them to a finisher to fully finish.
Egypt Garden by Chatelaine Designs – called for silks, metallics, and DMC on 32ct Days Gone By from Silkweaver. Finished the fourth side of flower stems.
From the Deep by Plum Street Samplers – called for DMC except for using NPI for the background on 40ct Lambswool. Stitching a small portion of the design to fit a specific frame.
The Lady Liberty Sampler by Threads Through Time – stitching with silks on 40ct Lakeside?? I worked on this for 4th of July. I did change the shield to be red instead of pink.
Our Lasting Friendship by Blackbird Designs – stitching with some called for, some my own choice overdyed threads on the called for 40ct Picture This Plus Legacy. I worked on this in honor of the passing of Barb Adams. I stitched the word “friendship” as a nod to her long-standing friendship with Alma and the friendships so many of us have made as stitchers and quilters who love Blackbird Designs.
Sarah Ann Banton 1833 by me (Cozyegg Designs) – AVAS Soie d’Alger on 40ct Weeks Putty. I finished both baskets and the satin stitching beneath them, the over one personalization, the freehand embroidered vine with flowers, and the bird that sits on top of the tree of life in the last section of the sampler. That embroidered section was intense, but not hard. It’s a combination of stem stitch and satin stitch. I love how it turned out. On to the last section.
I finished Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness. It’s the second book in the All Soul’s trilogy that started with A Discovery of Witches. I also read Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout that is the third book in the Dark Elements trilogy. Both of these were great reads.
I also read Den of Vipers by K.A. Knight in July as well.
My current read is the first book in the Black Jewels series, Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop. I’m really enjoying it so far. You can visit my Cozystyle blog for more book-related posts and reviews.
