New Year, No New Starts

Last year I designed a small band sampler for my EGA Chapter as we were celebrating our 35th anniversary. We have a great tradition of anniversary projects. My only limitations were to incorporate the colors of coral and jade. Which sort of explains the untraditional sampler colors occurring here. I've had this kitted since July and finally really started making progress in December. It's only 77 stitches wide. Feels great to be working with floss on Glenshee linen again.

First Finish of 2019

One Kelly Clark Halloween design done. I love Halloween and autumnal color palettes.

Now. What's next.

I love 13ct canvas when I'm traveling. This piece is a Kelly Clark canvas I kitted to take on a trip last year  But I never took a stitch. 

 I grabbed it to bring to Oklahoma for our holiday visit with our son's family. I mostly worked on a linen project, but finally succumbed to the fun that is hand painted canvas. I love my granddaughter who is very encouraging. Every time I work on it, I'll be hearing her say, "Good job, Grammie!"
I wish the shine of the Kreinik photographed better.

Happy New Year

In the past I've stated here at this time of year that I am bad at stating goals and following through. That hasn't changed a bit.

I have good intentions of posting here more frequently. We'll see.

Anyway  this pillow was a Christmas gift for my sister who lost her husband last January. She has had a crow following her around since then.

When I saw this Pippin canvas I knew I had to stitch it for her.

Just basketweave with Planet Earth silk. Simple, yet elegant.
