Well, here are the last two starts of the Challenge.
First up is Halloween from Elizabeth’s Needlework Designs. This design is supposed to be stitched over 2 on 35ct Weeks Mocha Linen. I am stitching it over 1 on 18ct Oatmeal Aida. The spiders and birds are supposed to be Smyrna stitches, but since I am not stitching over 2 it is not possible to do the specialty stitching on them. I like the way they are looking anyway, so that’s really all that matters!
Next up is another design from the Posy Collection, Woodrow Wilson’s Birthplace. I had the pleasure of visiting this historic site in Staunton (pronounced Stan-ton), VA while traveling through the Shenandoah and Blue Ridge Pkwys in 2009. It’s quite an impressive place to see!
This is a picture of the front that I took while in Staunton. This is pretty much how the design looks as well! I really love the Posy Collection and highly recommend their designs to anyone who has a love for Americana or American History!!!
Later in the week, I am going to put up a slide show of my works for this challenge including pictures of the covers of each kit/leaflet. I am going to put these aside until Feb 1st when the rotation will begin again! For the rest of January, I plan to work on some of my WIPs and finish-finish an old piece into a pillow for someone special in my life.
Until next time…
