Sunday Stitch – Third Project Start

I was digging thru the project bag of all my Sunday Stitches chart to decide what to start on next, I decided I didn’t feel like searching for lots of floss and there are several one color projects in my Sunday Stitches bag so I pulled out Love & Joy.  I also realized I didn’t have a photo of that one included on my Sunday Stitches page (which you can find in the top of the blog header) that shows the charts I have to choose from and shows the finished Sunday Stitches.   This was bought right before the “no buy 2022” moratorium went into effect.  It’s called Love & Joy and is such a pretty design.  The called for color is one of my favorite reds but I’ve got several red projects in the works and am getting kind of bored with red.  I knew I wanted a very mottled or variegated shaded thread and went to the group of Victorian Motto Floss from the variegated collection to see what I might have.

The floss is called My Tapestry and goes from dark blue to purples and the fabric has a light purplish hue to it – Sprite by PTP.

I do kind of want to start the chart that I got to reflect the “Frosty the Snowman” song.

I think that is so cute.  I think I will change the word “Christmas” to “Winter” so it’s not Christmas specific or I may just leave off the words and put more swirls.  But I have the prettiest blue fabric with sparkles in it that I think will look so good.

But, I want to finish the current snowman chart I have in the works before I start another one.  both are Teresa Kogut designs and the other one, which I started last year, also fits my Sunday Stitches theme for this year.  I was working on it ab bit last night – Up on the Housetop.  Last night I finished the house color between the top row of  windows and the icicles and got a few more rows on the roof done.    I need to finish off that roof so I can get on with those three dancing snowmen on the roof.

    • I’m assuming you mean Love & Joy – I generally try to take my photos to show the design company /designer name. Heartstring Samplery. It’s a fun stitch – I nearly got it completed last weekend.

  1. Impressive number of finished pieces for 2021. I did not see Quaker Crow and I though you did that one last year also.

  2. Great Idea to replace “Christmas” with “Winter” it can be used for many more months and so appropriate with the design.
