When Ruby does sleep downstairs she has taken over the chair where I display a lot of my cross stitched pillows. In fact, she has claimed the lovely pillow that I received in an exchange from Tina C .In fact, she loves to rest her tiny head on top of the pillow, thereby depositing a fair amount of her wispy black and white fur on the lovely stitching...sigh...
Anyways, on the stitching front I have been busy! I have put Miss Snow down temporarily to work on the tea exchange. As I mentioned I designed my own pattern and am now stitching furiously to get it done as soon as possible. I can't show a pic of it yet but its coming along nicely!
I can show a pic of the completed section of Lizzie Kate's Very Scary Mystery sampler. I had a blast with this design and am anxiously awaiting the next release of part 2! The little motifs are so cute and it stitched up quickly! I love the color of the linen which is Weeks Dye Works 35ct Tin Roof. The colors of the floss work so nicely together with the hue of the fabric.
Apologies for the shadow on the left side. I must stop taking pics during the nighttime hours. I will see if I can retake this picture and replace it with a better one. For now this will give you an idea of what it looks like.
One more project to show you; I have updates on my pen and ink drawing. I have not spent a lot of time on it lately which vexes me. I wanted to get this picture done, along with one other this Summer because I will be starting classes again in the Fall: consequently I will not get much creative work done. I should have started the painting by now. I do have some days off of work coming up so my strategy is to get the painitng done and perhaps a drawing started for the 3rd-- and final house in the Salem series. Wish me luck!
