I spent some of the day stitching part 6 of Carol's SAL. With each part that I stitch, I fall more in love with this design. While I was stitching it, I watched one of my favorite movies....While You Were Sleeping. If you've never seen this movie, it stars Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman and it's a great romantic comedy. It's worth watching just to see Bill's fantastic hair. :o) So if you've never seen it, I highly recommend it when you're in the mood for some light romantic comedy.
I also finished the pincushion from the month's issue of Gift of Stitching. I stitched it on 28ct. light gray jobelan using a beautiful Gloriana silk called Bellagio. I finished it into a pincushion and I used crushed corn cob for the stuffing. The backing is a pretty green on green and I made the bow out of the same fabric. You'll find this for sale in my store if you are interested. Isn't the acorn adorable!!!! I bought that this past week at Joann's and I'm going to try to reproduce it in cross stitch. I'm not sure if it's doable but I'll let you know either way.
Next on my stretcher is a design by Kathy Schmitz called Pin Skep. I'm also using a Gloriana Florimell Silk Floss and it will be trimmed with Gloriana Silk Ribbon to match. I think it's gonna be a fun stitch and I'll post pics when finished.
I hope everyone has a beautiful weekend and with this being the first week of October, shouldn't the leaves be turning to autumn colors? Please, please if they are where you live, please send me a picture of them!!!
Blessings as always,
