I had time to take photos today. I think I haven't shared these before.
Christmas Carrot from a 1990 issue of Country Stitch. Stitched on marbled DMC aida (why don't they make marbled evenweave?)I did switch out the color of the inner border. It was calling for another shade of green, but I thought the red would look better.
An older finish-Fa La La. I know I talked about it, but I forget if I posted this one. It was a freebie from Plum Pudding.
Irish Kitty from Kustom Krafts. Stitched with the recommended threads on a piece of Charles Craft aida.
And my new WIP, Reader I Married Him, aka The Jane Eyre Tribute. I am enjoying this a lot. I did get a bit of a stain on it, but I think it will come out with washing--it's either iced tea or dog drool, no biggie. I have to take the wooden box I bought to mount it on over to Daddy and see if he can stain it for me. He is a woodworker and refinished a lot of furniture in his time, and so, is better at these things than yours truly, plus he can probably find use for a container of stain after the project is finished, whereas I won't and it will just take up space in the garage.
I hope everyone is having a good week. This week is much better for me, though I am so saddened by the devastation of the floods in Nashville. I think I've posted that I work in flood insurance, and I would like to think I've developed a bit of professional "distance" due to what I deal with every day, but this is different. I love Nashville; I've loved it since I first visited 15 years ago and it's my favorite bigger city to visit. Five years ago, Best Friend Brea and I were at the Opryland Hotel for CATS, and it was so pretty. A fairyland. And it causes an ache to see water in the building, and to know the Country Music Hall of Fame has been flooded, and the new concert hall. Not to mention the sports complexes. I am asking everyone to keep the people of Nashville in your thoughts while they recover from this horrible event.
