New project

I decided to put the dog ornament down today.  I'm stitching it on 18 ct and a lot of it is white on white so it's a little tedious.

I have a bunch of smaller pieces that I consider "seasonal pieces" that I can switch based on the season or holiday.  Most of the pieces are for fall so I decided to stitch this one pattern that I knew I had the fabric and threads for in my stash.

It's called "Violets are Blue."  It's from Cross Stitch! magazine from the 1990s (out of the stash of mags I got from my cousin Amy).  There's not much to it so I was able to get the majority of it stitched today.  It's just as well since I have to spend most of tomorrow cleaning because my mother arrives for a visit on Saturday.


It's being stitched on 14 ct. Banjo Cloth. It's hard to see in the picture but there are some light purple flowers in the mix too.  I hope to have a better picture when it's finished.  I have one more row of letters and the top embellishment left.

Expect blogging to be slow this next week but I hope to be able to post some great pictures of the girls and grandma.
