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 I've organized links and favorites on the computer, got rid of outdated links or places I no longer go to and have even cleaned out my junk mail address of unwanted newsletters and emails.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! :)


Respectfully submitted,

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.
