Basket of Memories WIP

Yesterday, while at Stitcher's Paradise for my weekly stitching group, I wasn't feeling well and didn't feel like stitching anything I had brought with me. It was horribly overcast and the wind was kicking up the dust like something awful, running riot all over my sinuses. So, I figured it was time for something in a monochrome. I didn't have one to stitch with me, however, I am going to pack one into my stitching bag, so that if this happens again, I am better prepared. (Lord knows I have enough, LOL!).

I wound up purchasing another Blackbird Designs chart. Shocking I know! I managed to get a fair bit done. I suppose it was a good thing I felt kinda crappy as I am kinda tired of stitching on brown fabric. :)

At any rate, here is what I have so far:

Design: Basket of Memories - Reward of Merit Pincushion

Designer: Barb Adams for Blackbird Designs

Fabric: 30 count linen by Wichelt Imports in Ivory (DMC equivalent to 712)

Fiber: Simply Shaker thread by Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Aged Pewter

Well, I best be off. Today is my Monday and I have some chores to do before work. Hope everyone is having a good week! :)
