Ok, so I'm having a stitch day at my house tomorrow....I come downstairs this morning, with duster, vacuum, and mop in hand getting ready to clean when what to my wondering eyes should appear....
I'm giggling and shaking my head all at the same time. Where would I be without my goofy husband who is always exercising my chuckle musles?
Ok, I hope you've had time to look and see what I'm talking about in the picture...My husband LOVES anything Olivia Newton-John related. I've given him albums and other things she has created over the years. So when I saw this ornament at the Hallmark store, I couldn't resist getting it for him for Christmas. He loves the movie Grease, and loves the music from the movie too. We had a good laugh over it on Christmas day. I haven't taken my decorations down yet, because one of my friends wanted to see them (that's why the stitch day is tomorrow), so I didn't really notice that Olivia wasn't on the tree anymore...until I started dusting today. And there she was...well at least she stood back and let the Wise Men have the close spot next to Baby Jesus. I have to admire her, everybody should get to know Jesus!!!
Ok, on to the important stuff...Folks have been asking what my next WIP will be. I've decided to tackle Winter's Majesty...at least for the rest of this month. I have two items I need to make as gifts, and as soon as they are done, I'll be working on this fine lady. So here are pictures of what she looks like, and where I'm starting from right now.
I haven't worked on her since August of 2013. I started her on Christmas day, 2012.
I've also started one of my gifts, and I'm only going to show a little bit here. I don't want to give anything away, or who it's for...so here is my humble beginning...it is being stitched on 28 ct. Mushroom lugana over one. Thankfully, and as you can tell, it's just a small project...
And that is all the news that's fit to print. I hope none of you are expecting a dramatic finish like Aurora Cabin. I'll share a secret with you! Most of the sky and trees were done in half stitches. There was very little back stitching or couching that was left to do by the time I picked it back up again. There really wasn't much work left to be done, so it went along fairly quickly. Winter's majesty is mostly all cross stitches AND lots of back stitching with metallic thread. A stitcher's worst nightmare. But I'm going to work on it for a bit and see how far I get. Wish me luck! Till then, happy stitching everybody!!
