First, I am working on these little angels from the Angel Alphabet by Lesley Teare. They have a lot of backstitching and French knots, so it is taking me awhile. I'm halfway done with my word. Can you tell what it will be?
Next is this little blue Delft shepherd. I have eight little blue Delft pieces I plan to do for our "blue room". I think I am going to mount them on painted, square box canvases.
Finally, I am working my way through A Year in Chalk by Hands On Design. I have the first 9 charts, and I have finished the first three. Originally, I tried stitching them on the recommended evenweave. I could not get through one full line without my eyes crossing, and that was with a craft light and a magnifier. I became frustrated and so put them away for awhile. Finally, I decided to just stitch them on black 14-count Aida and I'm VERY pleased with the result. I am using the threads recommended: threads by Gentle Art, but I would have been just as happy matching the colours with DMC threads.
If you like these designs ~ they are all done in two colours only: "chalk" and whatever the accent colour is for the month ~ please leave a comment below, and I will have a drawing by Monday, February 15th, to give away the first three charts, which are in pristine condition.
Good luck, and I am happy to post anywhere in the world!
Stay tuned, for I am working on another Scottish design which I can't wait to share with you!
