Online Needlework Show

I'm so excited! The show began today, and is the first time I've officially been displayed in a show. :)

My meager number of designs (2!) can be found under the listing for European Cross Stitch. :D

I caved...

...and started Tuscan Rose. It's coming along pretty quickly. I put the first few stitches in on Friday, did a bit on Saturday and got a lot done yesterday.

This is done on Sassy's 40ct Hay Fields using HDF floss in the suggested colours. It's not often I do a design as charted, I almost always choose my own colours, but this one is perfect as it is. No need to mess with perfection.

I also got some charting done yesterday on a few different things. Spring Fever is improving, probably because of the huge dumping of snow we got yesterday, which is still coming down. As soon as the sun is shining again though, I fear the stitching ADD will return. lol

Okay, I wasn't going to show WIP pictures of this one, but I'm so excited I can't contain myself.


I don't have a lot done yet, and as of now, I'm out of thread, but more is on the way. :) The butterfly colour is much more variegated than I had originally planned, but the other colours have a very soft flow so I think it will be okay. AND I think it's just enough to draw the eye. Still lots more stitching to come on this one.

I have to work this afternoon, but then I have the weekend off. So after some serious house cleaning, I'm going to stitch. And stitch. And stitch. I'm thinking I need to start Tuscan Rose. :D
