I’m not stitching anymore!
I’m really working on stitching carrots for an Easter tree. These are charts from Vicki Hastings , The Cricket Collection( http://www.cecricket.com/catalog21.html ):
No 241 Rabbits’ Big Day( http://www.cecricket.com/catalog_pics7/241big.jpg ),
No 242Rabbit Garden ( http://www.cecricket.com/catalog_pics7/242big.jpg ),
No 243 Rabbit’s Delight ( http://www.cecricket.com/catalog_pics7/243big.jpg),
No 244 Leaping Rabbit ( http://www.cecricket.com/catalog_pics7/244big.jpg ).
They were designed for linen but have no half or quarter stitches so I am stitching them on 18 count orange canvas. Since I’m on a short time schedual I’m just using the suggested DMC floss and stitching them in basketweave. Well, that’s not exactly true…I did change the coat from green to blue and I am using Threadworx overdyed oranges for the carrots…but other than that staying pretty true to the charts.
I found a tree at Pier 1 that will work. It is very similar to the one in the picture.
So, No Foolin….I’m going to stitch the day and night away…
Hope no one fools you today and you have time to stitch today! ttfn…sue
