Superbowl and Stitching


How about them Packers??  I love a good football game that comes down to the last few minutes, and Green Bay pulled it out.  While most of the town I live in are Steeler’s fans (and no I don’t live in Pittsburgh) we were pulling for the Packers. --of course Payton and his Indy Colts lost out in the playoffs—.

I stitched some during the game (after eating pizza and the obligatory Corona).  Did manage to finish project #5 ~ Glendon Place – Web of Stash.

I stitched this on 28 Ct. “Sand” Cashel Linen using the recommended Weeks Dye Works overdyed threads.

We got a new scanner/printer and the scan of this is so much better than snapping it with my old Olympus camera, which is about toast.  Plans were to get a new camera when sometime in the next few weeks.

Speaking of Frogs

Day 3’s project is the cutest little scissors case and I just love the wording…I Don’t Do Frogging….I Do Reverse Stitching…  I think I will adopt this as my theme of rippin out stitches when those little errors in counting occur.

Here is a snap of the two sections that will be stitched together with a ribbon threaded through scissors.  I just love the polka dot lining fabric.  It is really a neat little concept.  I would love to keep these but they will be a gift to one of my fellow stitchers.

Here is a little update on my Glendon Place Witches Wheel.  It is stitched all in black DMC threads and when finished, will be embellished with several colors of beads.  It has been fun watching the piece take shape, but me thinks it will be a while before I see anything close to a finish.
