BH & G Cross Stitch and Country Crafts Magazine
28 ct. Lakeside Linen
First whole week that I was able to work in this project.
Been trying to keep up on the border as I go along so it's not so overwhelming. Glad to have finished the alphabet, since it was one thread over one. I will be able to work on the middle section , although it's full of satin stitch. So is the part between the two red basting threads. Notice how I have skipped over that part. Working up my intestinal fortitude.
My mom and I made a trip out to Needles in Haymarket this week. I haven't been in the store for over 2 years. They have some cross stitch and needlepoint, but their focus in mainly yarn.
I purchased some yarn to make a scarf for my niece. I ran out of the yarn from the final blanket, and the yarn I picked is more girly colors. I also picked up some yarn to knit my daughter an eternity scarf. If you bought the yarn, you got the free pattern. Not sure whether that was such a deal since the yarn was pretty pricey. But the sample in the store was pretty.
Can't really tell from the pic, but the dark yarn is a very pretty teal.
Still more pending projects I need to get back to! Maybe this week! I really hate things hanging over my head.
That's bout all for this week. Happy stitching!
