My hands however, have been busy and have wrought some beauty.
I stitched "Country Garden Stitchery" design for the September SYHO SAL. The colors are beyond gorgeous and gave me the opportunity to blend 1 strand of 2 different colors together to create a whole new "impression," and I really am happy with the finish. I do have to admit, however, that it was a bit stressful to stitch as I do not respond well to patterns that have frequent color changes....but that is my own little quirk, and by the end I was suffering from some color overload. But, a cup of tea and a cookie helped. :)
|I was a bit confused on the charted straight stitching for the plaid effect on the house.....so I made up my own rules....long stitches for everything!|

Just for poots and giggles, I made a little more progress on my Dutch Treat Designs WIP. I am continuing to stitch in a diagonal pattern (as the lettering permits) and I really like both the effect and the challenge.
I like the designer so much, in fact that I just ordered another chart from them titled "Love One Another."
