I hope everyone's week has been good so far. I'm really worried about those in the pan handle of Florida. I have a reader who lives outside of Tallahassee and I haven't heard from her in 2 days so I'm a little worried. I received an email from another reader who has Mary's phone number and she hasn't been able to get in touch with her. I know that there is so much destruction there that it will be weeks before they get electricity but that doesn't stop me from worrying. I heard that one little town was wiped completely off the map. Unless you have gone thru one of these storms, it's hard to describe the fear and anxiety that you live with. Let's all say a prayer for those in need.
I do have a finished to share with you. It's another Blackbird design that's done in one color. For some reason I've been attached to this type for the moment. This one is called "Autumn Silhouette" and I stitched it in another DMC Variations thread 4522. One thing I'd like to add about this pattern....I absolutely hated stitching the border.
I've started a new project and it's another older pattern. "Quaker Home" by Bent Creek. I'm stitching it on 30ct. Dover Linen with the recommended DMC threads. Here's what the pattern looks like. I know it looks like it's stitched in shades of blue and green but they are actually browns and greys. I'm not planning on framing mine but making it into a stand up. We'll see just how it looks when I'm finished.
Halloween is coming up soon so I thought I'd start celebrating early.
