The San Francisco Treat

I began a new project on St. Patricks' Day this year. This is a special project that will only be worked on once a month, as I have almost hit my unofficial goal of 12 projects stitched in a year. Once I have finished stitching #12, I will be 'allowed' to stitch on some of my larger projects that have fallen by the wayside. I will also be hitting up Kit Mountain and the ever popular Bin O'Shame. I haven't gotten delved into either one in quite some time, and there are projects in both that are calling my name. Should be good stitching times! :)

This project will be going with me whenever DH and I take any road trips.  I really like the colors in this project and I can see visiting the other cities and stitching the other designs up as a memento. :) It would be a really good excuse to travel and stitch while doing so!

At any rate, here is the beginnings of my 'Every Now And Again' project:

Designer: Jody Rice of Satsuma Street

Fabric: 28 count Cashel linen in Fog by Picture This Plus

Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 as called for in the chart

Stitchers' Notes: Began Friday, March 17, 2017. Project to be stitched once per month. 

As of Saturday, March 18, 2017:

I do wish that the camera picked up the 'fogginess' of the fabric. The colors really pop and it definitely looks foggy! As this is stitching up fairly rapidly, so I do not anticipate this project taking more than a few months. I will probably frame this, although, I really do wish that I had a sewing machine. It would make a really nice pillow finish. 

Well, I had best be off. Time to start stitching my Easter themed project, so that I can at least have my 12 finishes for the year. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
