Some Finishes to Share
Well this is a year in Chalk for May -- but it is not this color fabric. I was so tired of the Gunmetal Gray fabric, we picked a completely different color scheme for May. This fabric is actually Green, like the Avocado - the inside off one. Sort of. And the floss is Chalk, and Sugar Plum (Gentle Arts). This looks really pretty - but in the picture it looks terrible. Will see if I can get a better picture over the weekend.
Here is Mr. Red Nutcracker. He is my third one complete for the year 9 more to go.
So I don't have as many choices as you would think - however I did find these handsome dudes in a very old Better Homes Cross Stitch Christmas from 1990.
I really haven't figured out any May Stitching Plans but Saturday I am taking a class at the LNS. It's a little project on 40 ct gauze. I have never used this fabric before so we will see. I will show pictures for sure.
Happy Cinco_de_Mayo day. This has become a very big celebration. I am eating Mexican food tonight and meeting friends for a sip or two. I am not quite sure why this has become a day of intense celebration, but I don't really mind having another day to take a little time out and spend with friends, good food and drink.
