Guess what!


Time for a Flash Challenge Adoption.  As always – read the rules for the FCA found at a button at the top of the blog header.   Don’t be that person automatically disqualified for not following the rules – that would be  disheartening if you really want the chart.  And please, only play along if you want to stitch the chart yourself.   This time there are two separate charts (you can only adopt one but you can apply for both if you would be interested in either of them) since I never heard from the prior adoptee of a chart.   These are the two charts up for adoption.  You know what to do. 🙂



Things have been hectic lately but I did finally get Celebrate Harvest and Always Be a Wildflower out in today’s mail to their recipients.

Counting is Hard – completed

I finished off this stitch last night.   I added more pins to my pincushion (I think there were only three in the chart) and instead of a regular cross stitch at the top, I did the pin head as a french knot since I didn’t have any beads the right size or color.   The floss bobbin is interesting because you stitch with normal cross stitches where the “floss color” is but then go back and add in some long stitches across the top of that.  You can’t see it in my photo but it makes it look like thread is truly wrapped around it.

I think I may use the “brick finish” like I have done before but need to see if this will fit the styrofoam brick.   Hmmmm now what do I work on?
