On the upside, have started the decoy cross stitch project while I am doing birthday presents and Christmas presents. This is so I have something to blog about. I ordered this a while ago from Shakespeare's Peddler and she had done a conversion to overdyes from DMC and I really liked it.
I was really surprised yesterday when the mail came and I had gotten my order from Country Stitches, the new pattern from With Thy Needle and Thread. This is the one that uses the 12 ounce Whitman Sampler Box. I can't wait to sink my teeth into this one but, it is going to have to wait until some of these other projects are off the hopper.
Finally the chenile as a finish for box top. I really love the chenile as a finish. The color is also a little over exposed in the picture but it is a bluish green over dye and truly lovely.
I must end now because the good ole/new knee is squawking.
Thanks for stopping and keep on stitching.
