October Quaker and Salem Witch

Well, I seem to be stitching a bit more, which is good, considering the amount of stash I have :P. The first WIP I have is the October Quaker from The Workbasket . I won't be able to finish it until tomorrow or the day after, as I made a huge error and had to frog out a large section, thus resulting in running out of floss. I am going to Stitcher's Paradise tomorrow for a supply run. I won't be able to stay to stitch, as I am now working on Wednesdays :(. Sucks to be me, but I have a job and it pays fairly well.

At any rate, here is what I have so far. Almost finished, yay!

Design: October Quaker from the leaflet Quaker Evens

Designer: The Workbasket

Fabric: 32 count linen in Golden Maple by Fleur de Luce Hand Dyeds

Fiber Used: Crescent Colours hand dyed cotton in German Chocolate

I started a new WIP last night while watching the old Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes via Netflix. I love Mr. Brett in this series and I never get tired of watching the Granada produced Sherlock Holmes.

Here is the wee bit I managed to get in before bed:

Design: Salem Witch

Designer: Lisa Roswell of The Primitive Needle

Fabric: 28 count linen in Legacy by Picture This Plus

Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Old Crow.

***Stitcher's note: Stitched one strand of silk over two threads.

Well, I need bolt for the door. Lots to do before work today. Hope everyone is having a great day!
