Can you help me find it please? I've tried everything, from looking at new releases to looking at your WiP pictures and lovely finishes to fondling my stash (which I had fun doing, by the way). Things that had helped in the past but to no avail now. I have the desire to stitch but not the drive. Does that make sense? I mean, I'll pick up something intending to work on it but few stitches in and I just cannot bring myself to continue on. I'm frustrating myself. Argh!
This is why, even after eons of absence, I have only one small happy dance to show. If you remember, from my last post, I was working on Little House Needleworks' Coffee Series. The first of the accompanying Tea Series is Spiced Tea.
I gotta tell you, it is not without struggle that I manage to finish it. For such a small design, it is quite a big accomplishment for me.
Design: Spiced Tea
Designer: Little House Needleworks
Fabric: Zweigart's Vintage Country Mocha (Marbled) 32 count Belfast linen
Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie
Other than that, I've also managed to complete the middle section of my Little House Neighbourhood.
And that, ladies (and gentlemen), is all the stitching I have to show. Pathetic, I know :(
On to other stitching related (but not actual stitching) news :P look what's back from the framers.
I think my framer did a splendid job. He's my father's friend and all my needlework with the exception of Be My Valentine by Ellen Maurer-Stroh have been framed by him. I usually leave it to him to pick out the mats and frame which so far, he has yet to disappoint.
Check out a close-up picture of the gold-colored frame. I especially love the aged effect.
Oooh... the postman was just here and look what he left behind!
Cindy had a giveaway of charts on her blog couple of weeks ago to celebrate more than 10,000 hits. I was one of the lucky few who won something :) Thank you, Cindy, for your generosity. If you had not visited her blog before, head on over and you'll see why it had generated so many hits. I believe you won't be disappointed.
Till next time, take care and happy stitching.
