I haven’t posted a progress picture of Alpine Seasons for over a month. (click to be taken to last progress pic) Here’s the latest:
I’ve just started to work on the mountain scenery in the upper left hand corner. The blues and purples in the outermost octagon border seem a little off with colors in the rest of the design, but I think there’s going to be so much green above this that it’ll blend in. 🙂
Next is M Designs Alphabet letter “H:”
As you can see, not much progress! I’m using “Mulberry” Waterlilies silk on 32 count cream linen. This is my vacation take-along piece and I didn’t do much stitching on my last vacation. I’ll take on my next vacation to Portland, OR in September. It’s a good one to work on if I feel like stitching but don’t feel like getting out a larger project.
A few nights ago I had a dream about Little House Needleworks’ Thread Gathering…. I might start that one up soon. I want to do the House of a Needlworker one more, but don’t have the crescent colors I need yet. Sounds like a good excuse to visit House of Stitches once I’m able to. I may check Needle Nest (no web page) to see if they carry Crescent Colors, as it’s significantly closer. They have an incredible variety of fibers there.
I’m recovering from my surgery. Tomorrow is the two week anniversary and I expect to be cleared to go back to work sometime later in the week. It feels like a lot longer than two weeks… All of the swelling has gone away and I’ve actually managed to lose 10 pounds. I guess you use up a lot of calories healing… Whatever the reason, I’ll take it, especially after inexplicably gaining 3 pounds after my action filled vacation earlier in the month.
