I started the Donkey from Prairie Schooler's American Primitive this morning. It was my late day at work, so I had time to sit and stitch this morning, while watching the Golden Girls--one of my chief guilty pleasures in life. It's a pretty simple stitch. I want to do both it and the elephant as matching little pillows, kinda like
Native Texan did. Isn't her elephant sweet? I also want to do the Uncle Sam and angel from the same leaflet, but I think I will do those over 1.
So far I am liking stitching this piece. It's surprising to me that I have a lot of Prairie Schoolers, but don't really ever stitch that many, I think I've finished 2. (cringes), but I am trying to get some more done. They are so simple and pretty. It really is a joy to take plain DMC and stitch on plain fabric and make a thing of beauty. I may just end up stitching a lot more simple things like this this summer, but I don't know yet. Don't hold me to that. I have so many things to finish. I did pick up my cat afghan and thought about working on it, but I promised that I would only stitch patriotic things, and I only have 10 days or so til July 4th, so I can wait a week.
