Hopefully, soon, I'll be about finishing them. 😉
Shortly after posting last week's YOP post I started on this Blue Tit Cushion:
See the legs and the tip of its tail? This is a fun project and I hope it doesn't take me long to finish it, but honestly... I've gotten seriously distracted with cross stitch this week. Last week Jo-Ann Fabrics had a coupon for 40% off everything that was full price and I just couldn't let it go to waste. So I made a list of several cross stitch projects I'd like to make, surveyed my collection of floss and fabric that was already in my possession, and made a list for some cross stitch supplies to purchase.
I came home with some Aida and Evenweave cloth in natural colors (I only had white and cream in my stash), and some beautiful floss colors. Finally having everything I needed, on Thursday I got started on this Partridge in a Pear Tree design:
I like the original design (in the little oval picture frame), but see what looks like gray in the wings in the original design? What appears to be gray in the original is actually two shades of blue - lighter shades than what is used on the head and underbelly. I liked the gray. And I didn't want my partridge to have country-blue wings. So I'm substituting a couple of colors I had in my stash, and so far I think it's working. I'm committed at this point, so I'm pretty determined to like it. Hopefully I'll finish it soon.
And finally... feeling a little regretful that I hadn't even picked up my crochet hook since last weekend, I quickly made a little Sun's Out Coaster:
I've been keeping a crocheted coaster on the computer desk, so this will be a fun one to switch to once it heats up. Wait a minute... that would be now! This is the third day in a row it's been in the 80's here. And it's humid. Hopefully, we'll get rain today as the weather pattern pushes through and there'll be some cooler air behind that. I am not ready for 80 degrees in mid-May. Come Memorial Day we can expect that kind of heat, but I want me some breezy crisp mornings for another week at least!
