Good Monday to all of you and I hope your week has started off great. I think I've mentioned Peyton and John's little dog Chloe and I finally got a picture of her. She is a sweetheart! When they were packing for our vacation, she decided they weren't leaving without her and she planned on making for sure. LOL She's a mixture and a rescue. We just love her!
I've started Cherry Hollow Farm by Stacy Nash and as you can see I don't have alot finished yet. The kit came with 36ct linen but I had trouble seeing it so Debbie switched it out and gave me a piece of 32ct. Now I've done some dumb things in my stitching career but this one was the worse. I always iron my linen before I use it and I give it a light spray of starch. It's on a shelf above my ironing area so I just reached up and got what I thought was it and started spraying. It wasn't starch....it was spray adhesive!!!! I sprayed about half of a fat quarter. Does anyone know how I can get this out? I feel like such an idiot! Anyway so I had to pick another linen. I had bought some 38ct. Gander Linen because everyone said how great it is and I have it in several colors. But I'm thinking if I can't see 36ct how am I going to see 38ct? I can see it! Someone had posted on a board about how easy this 38ct. linen is to see and they were right. So I am stitching Cherry Hollow Farm over 2 threads with 1 strand of Weeks Dye Works and I'm loving it. If you get a chance to purchase some Gander Linen, I highly recommend it.
I'm also working on another Christmas ornie and this one also is from Little House Needleworks called "My House". It's part of her village series.
I hope everyone has a very Blessed week, Barbara
