Here is my current progress on the Sweetheart Tree Stitchers Favorite Biscornu. I really love the ivy border! This kit, in addition to beads, came with teeny little buttons that you sew on. I finished the fob version of this as part of the 2009 Ornament project.
So far, this has been a travel piece if I’m out of town on the weekend or on vacation. I’ll be going to San Fransisco in a couple of weeks, so I’ll probably get more done then.
I’ve made a little more progress on VS HSS, but mainly the over one viney border around the upper alphabet – not really enough to post a new picture.
I’m contemplating starting the Lizzie Kate Living With Charm double flip banner. I’ve got fabric but not all of the overdyes that are called for. I’m seriously considering just using DMC to stitch this. It calls for 5 skeins of Gentle Art and 16 skeins of Weeks and I’m estimating it would be around $40 for fibers. That doesn’t seem unreasonable, but I’m on a limited income right now and think about how far I could take that in a grocery store. 🙂 In pics I’ve seen online, I do see some variation in colors, but not so much that I think that the final product would seriously suffer from lack of overdyes. What do you think?
