Hello Everyone! We made a good decision about the camping trip. Where we were camping got some heavy rain, then some high winds as the front went through. There would have been only one good day to enjoy the outside before more rain. We are going on a day trip today so I hope there will still be leaves on the trees after the wind!
I’ve only worked on three cross stitch projects this week so this will be short.
We’ll start with Scenic Farm. I finished all the background leaves! Yeah! I also stitched that small fir tree. There are two small buildings left to stitch and some snow on the ground, then the main stitching will be finished. There is still lots of backstitching to do in this section, though. There are also lots and lots of French knots to be stitched in the trees. I wanted to do those last so they wouldn’t get crushed. I may try to make colonial knots instead. I’ll have to see what lays better.
I almost have The Raven’s Reply finished. Just that last section of the border to do. I plan on having it fully finished by next week. Still a toss up of a pillow finish or some kind of flat finish.
I started the new Halloween small called Pumpkin Pageant by Louis Young. Isn’t that fabric beautiful? It’s Woodland Moss by Mt Aire Fabrics. I purchased it last year from an Etsy shop after Needlework Market. I wanted to use just a little bit of the corner. There is still lots of it left to stitch other things.
Here is the information about the cross stitch design. This was probably one of my mom’s cross stitch patterns that I’ve taken over the years. I’ve had it a long time. It was a freebie at the time and I did try to look up the designer, Louise Young, and found a couple of charts on eBay, but there was not much information about her. After it’s finished, if you would like to have a download of the chart, you can let me know. I don’t want to publish it without knowing it’s status.
That’s it for me today. I plan to finish both of the fall charts and keep plugging away at Scenic Farm. I also plan on starting the new Thanksgiving Saltbox from Melisa at PinkernPunkin Quilting. I hope you have a great rest of your week and thanks for stopping by.
