It's snowing in Eagle Valley this morning. When I got up at 5:30 this morning there wasn't a snow flake in site but by 7:00 we had close to a half inch! It's 8:00 now and still putting it down out there.
The snow makes it a perfect day to stay inside and embroider! Before I get started I wanted to share some of my own work to show you I really have been stitching.
I found a piece of redwork still in the hoop last weekend so I finished it this week. There are a stack of these redwork flowers that I've been working on for the last year. Would they qualify for Sandie's UFO and WISP challenge? I sort of have a plan for a wall hanging but it hasn't really been designed yet. Guess I'm waiting until I have them finish for that.
Redwork is great fun for me...I know...I know some would say it's boring but I love the challenge of keeping the stitches even. I'm afraid I didn't do a very good job with this hibiscus flower but it's the one I found in the hoop and I just couldn't match the stitching that was already there.
This Daisy I did yesterday...the whole flower... so the stitches are far more even. I wouldn't go to bed until it was done.
This heart was finished yesterday morning. I have a stack of hearts sewn up and waiting for embellishment but I slow at working on them. Sharon B's TAST helped me out with this heart I did the herringbone on the left side, the buttonhole stitch on the right side, blanket stitch along the bottom and detached chain stitches several places.
Well I'm off to fix another cup of coffee and get started on some stitching. I hope you all are having a wonderful day and Happy Stitching!!!!
