Before I do chart adoption, just a quick pic of my start on October Sampler this afternoon. If you want any details on it go to the post prior to this one. The chart, the floss colors (doesn’t matter what it is – floss, yarn, quilting, furniture, clothing I love Fall colors best), and this fabric which I love stitching on even if I am using strands, will all make this a quick and very enjoyable stitch.
And now that I posted this photo and see what I screwed up (isn’t that always the way – it is more obvious in the photo than when you just finished stitching it), I’ll be ripping out those three separate stitches on the bottom petal (oh wait no I don’t have to rip I can just add more in) but that row should be a solid row all the way across the same as the row
below above it and then the next row is 3 spaced stitches. Easy fix.
On to the Chart Adoption – as always if you don’t know how my chart adoptions work – go to Chart Adoption Information button at the top of the blog and you’ll find all the info there on how to be a successful chart adopter.
I do still have adopted charts to mail out from the last adoption day – this week was just plain crazy busy at work and I forgot to put them in my bag to take to the office and the prior week and a half I worked from home so warned they wouldn’t get mailed until a day when I was back in the office. I will get them mailed this week one of the days I am there as I just grabbed them and put them in my bag.
So today I have two charts that are up for adoption (and 4 or 5 others waiting in the wings for another day).
Xmas Hare is first up – Keyword is Hare. It was originally a kit to make a holiday card but I wanted to stitch it as an Easter decoration so left off all the background motifs and words. it was done with a new to me floss that is sort of a little fuzzy and then after you finish stitching his sweater you take a little piece of Velcro – the prickly side – and pounce that over the sweater and it makes it more fuzzy to look like a mohair sweater.
You will get the front cover, chart and what’s left of the floss. Since I didn’t use any of the background flosses you will have enough to use for this stitch but since I did stitch the rabbit, you will need to use your own flosses or order more for that part.
The second chart is Do Small Things With Great Love, a Lizzie Kate design. It’s only 73 stitches by 41 stitches so a quick little stitch but I decided not one that I will be stitching so, if you wish to adopt this one, Small is the keyword. I forgot to take a photo of the chart front but you can see what it looks like here.
Now back to my October Sampler stitching. Hope you got some stitching time in this weekend too.
