Oh my! It’s been at least three months since my last post, and I haven’t stitched one iota. Actually, I started stitching about four days ago, and I’m slowly getting back into it. I was so distracted with my gym training, that I just didn’t have the time to spare for stitching. Plus, the weather has been so nice, I’ve been spending any extra time that I do have enjoying the outdoors.
I recently started working on my cousin’s baby’s birth announcement, and I’m enjoying stitching it, because the ballerina is just too darn cute. I finished one ballerina, and I’m starting the second today. The first ballerina is missing her tutu. I had to order special floss for that, and I’m waiting for that shipment to arrive. The floss is Glissen Gloss. Until this project, I’ve never heard of it before.
Here’s what I have so far:
Isn’t it the cutest? Sorry, I can’t help it. 🙂
The fabric I’m using is X’s and Oh’s, hand-dyed, 14-ct Aida, “Lavender Sunset” that I picked up at the Creativ Festival in April earlier this year.
