Today I put the final stitches in 6 Fat Men by Lizzie Kate. I'm so happy to have this finished. I was stitching it in a SAL but finally had to stitch more to get it finished. I was loosing interest in it and didn't want to put it away. I've already put Lizzie Kate's Summer Mystery away after stitching a quarter, maybe a third of the first part. Now to get it framed. I'll be taking it to a small framing shop in Mount Vernon (WA) tomorrow and seeing what they will charge. I'm hoping that I can still get in on the summer sale. I heard the sign was still hanging outside. I was so surprised that I used almost 5 skeins of Whitewash over dyed floss for the snow. I never stitch anything twice but I was to stitch this again I would use DMC white. The snow with the over dyed floss is a little dirty. I hate dirty snow. When we get snow I don't want anyone to walk in it or disturb it. I love pure white snow. After Christmas I put out my snowmen for a month. I'm looking for fabric to make a mantel scarf that's snowflakes. I have the pattern (I think) but can't find any fabric that I like that is plastered with glitter! I'm jut not into that sparkly stuff!
I have my next project ready to start tonight. I'm wondering if I shouldn't do a small project but this one is about 8 x 11 so its not to bad. Its called Autumn Cardinals by Diane Arthurs (Imaginating). There are 4 in this series of seasons. I probably start the Christmas chart but I have lots and lots of cross stitched Christmas pictures and ornaments that I think I'll stick with the fall chart! Fall is my favorite season after all!
