Heather at Stitching Lotus is kind enough to organize the Small Monthly SAL. This is JBW French Country Umbrella (without the words). It is stitched on what I think is 28 ct evenweave - with Fiberlicious Yummy Wildflowers. The colors are really bright and I really had fun with it.
I never showed you my work from the Class I took the beginning of May on 40 ct silk gauze.
This is quite a process. First I basted the gauze to the muslin - so I could put it in my qsnaps. Once it is basted - you cut the whole in the muslin - and if you knew me with scissors this was a little scary.
The picture of my stitching is actually upside down - the one of my stripes so far. It goes pretty fast - this is a basketweave stitch so you are only doing have a cross stitch - I picked this for the first project because all the stitches are right next to each other - the counting was still a little difficult.
This is Erica Michaels. I do plan on finishing this before the 4th of July - and I think I would do one of these again.
This is the beginning of a Holiday Weekend in the States - and the weather in Central New York is suppose to be very hot --- thank goodness as of last week my heat was still kicking on in the night. I will be enjoying the three day weekend with family and friends and I took an extra day off so I will be relaxing and chilling for 4 wonderful days. Thanks for stopping by and Stay Safe
