Winter Solstice Post

Happy Winter Solstice to everyone! For those of you out there in Blogland who can't stand winter, the days from here on out will be slowly, but surely!, getting longer. Which also means my beloved Peeps aren't that far behind. Yay!!

At any rate, I managed to pick something back up that I had sort of started. I wasn't digging on the original fabric, so I changed it to my favorite Picture This Plus Cashel linen in Legacy.  I am loving the project so far, but twice the frog has visited, so I hope he's gone for now!

Here is what I have so far:

Designer: Linda Ebright for Lizzie Kate

Fabric: 28 count Picture This Plus Cashel linen in Legacy

Fibers: Weeks Dye Works  embroidery floss in Artichoke, Baked Apple, Charlotte's Pink, Chestnut, Collards, Dirt Road, Oscar, Parchment, Pebble and Straw. 

Stitcher's Notes: Stitched one floss thread over one fabric thread. Frame by Q-Snap.  Needle by John James, gold plated in size 28.

I am seriously considering changing the saying in the middle part, but to what I am not sure of yet. I may just do the stitching around the saying and decide later. 

Well, I best be off. Today marks the start of my week and I have to be at work soon. Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)


Respectfully submitted,
