November 2015 Overnight Shift Post

It's that happy time again for me aka: the overnight shift weekend. The team I work on rotates weekends so no one is stuck, and I like it as it affords me the opportunity to have an excuse to not leave the house for an entire weekend. Which I am perfectly ok with :D! It's as if I have a built in hermit weekend every month, which is cool. 

This month's overnight shift weekend project is another one fromCathy Habermann of Hands on Designs. I really do love these as they are quick and easy projects that you can enjoy stitching. I am also a big fan of tweaking the colors to what I have already in stash, so there is that. 

Well, enough of my blathering, on with the show!

Design: hd-30 February: a year in chalk

Designer: Cathy Habermann of Hands on Designs

Fabric Used: 30 count Ink Spot Black by R & R Reproductions (possibly discontinued)

Fibers Used: The Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Chalk. Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Prickly Pear.

Stitcher's Notes: Substituted Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Prickly Pear for the called for Tea Rose. Substituted the called for 30 count Weeks Dye Works Gunmetal for the Ink Spot Black by R & R Reproductions in stash. 

Began Thursday, November 19, 2015:

I am probably going to add some beads to this project, however, I do not have any that are suitable. I find it utterly amazing that after 20+ years stitching, I can have every bead and/or floss under the sun, except for that one. Ah, well. It keeps business alive and well, I suppose! :)

I must be off. I need to take care of some chores before I get to get comfortable in my chair. Hope everyone has a great weekend!


Respectfully submitted,

Those chalk board designs are so cute. And I know what you mean about having a ton of stash and always needing to buy one more thing when you start a project. I try to make do, but you know how the urge to get just the right thing takes over!

Have a great Thanksgiving!
