Wednesday of last week I wrote an update about what's been going on in my little corner of the world. There was lots of Spring evident, a couple of birthdays celebrated, a sister visited, and my brother's house sold! All very good things.
And then, yesterday I set myself to finishing this little project:
Using a fabric in my stash (that once was in my MIL's fabric stash), I made this cute little stitch into a pillow. Now I just need a few dozen more little pillows and I'll have a display-worthy collection. At the rate I stitch, I may have that collection done by say... the end of the decade. 😄
This next little bit is for my reference mainly, but if you're interested in the materials used, read on. I used a combination of called-for Gentle Arts Sampler Threads, and DMC floss. The cats are stitched using various shades of DMC grays, and I turned what was originally a white bird (a dove, maybe?) into a bluebird. Fabric for the stitched part is 18-count Aida from Picture This Plus - in the colorway, Sterling. Stitched 2 over 1 on 18-count Aida, the design measures 5.25" x 4". Just right for a small pillow.
And that's pretty much all I've got on this beautiful late-April Sunday afternoon!
