Spring Cleaning

Hot off the Q-snaps is my latest UFO finish, Little House Needleworks' Season of Growth . This makes the third UFO (and probably final) finish for this month. I have another UFO that I've been working on off and on. It's slow going on account of it being DMC's B5200 on white Monaco. It's total Snoresville, however, I am making some progress and I hope to finish it soon.



Design: Season of Growth


Designer: Diane Williams for Little House Needleworks



Fabric: 28 count Graziano Milan linen in white from Norden Crafts



Fibers: DMC Embroidery Floss Art 117 in 150, 433, 434, 712, 793, 930, 931, 3032, 3051, 3052, 3721 and 3790


Stitcher's notes: Substituted DMC 150 for the called for 3051in the words Summer, June, July and August.








Now that I took a bit of time to organize my stash, my organizing has taken a life of its own and has spilled out into the house on onto the computer. I've organized links and favorites on the computer, got rid of outdated links or places I no longer go to and have even cleaned out my junk mail address of unwanted newsletters and emails. It feels good to have extraneous junk taken care of and I am finding other places that still need a wee bit of organizing. (My desk being one, LOL! :P).


Well, I need to go. Tomorrow is my my Wednesday stitching at Stitcher's Paradise and I need to get another UFO in the bag and clean up the threads and put away the Season of Growth chart. Until next time, stay stitching my friends! :)

Seasons of Growth looks great! One of my least favorite things to stitch is white on white, or any color that is really close to the color of the fabric.
