New Finish, New Start
Yep, it's yet another biscornu! This design is from a fellow blogger Kissy-Cross (Kirsten Schmidt) and is from a post on August 8th of 2008. Scroll down a bit and you will see this unique biscornu pattern! I used a bit of leftover Summer Sky opalescent Silkweaver fabric, and DMC. I used a shade darker blue for the flowers in one corner so they would be more visible on the blue fabric.
It was started on 2/2 and finished 2/4/09.
Also yesterday, I started working on a canvaswork piece from Northern Pine Designs called Blue Bayou
My friend Carolyn is stitching another of their designs, called Ebb Tide. We are SAL-ing! Mine is going pretty fast so far, and it's fun to stitch.
Hello! I've been married 23 years, 1 daughter, age 21 in 2015, stitcher for 35+ years, BA in anthropology, Masters in Library Science. Family includes 4 cats and one dog. In addition, I'm an unrequited horse-crazy girl who never grew up, and still wishes for a horse of my own! My main hobby is stitching (of course!). I stitch on a rotation, love designs by Teresa Wentzler, Crossed Wing, Just Nan and Chatelaine, and like making quilts on occasion. I'm into crochet as well, making hats, scarfs and afghans. I also love reading, chocolate, and hanging out with DH and DD and the pets! I volunteer with a local environmental group, and have been known to do a little subversive bird watching! I'm a bit of an obsessive fan of Doctor Who and the Eleventh Doctor, also Tolkien, Star Trek, and Anne McCaffrey's PERN! I love watching sports on TV, including my Duke Blue Devils and my Carolina Hurricanes!
The name badge above was stitched from a pattern called Spring Kitty Paw by Michelle Lutzen of Stitchy Kitty which is available via SASE. The address is on her website, along with several other cute freebies! I greatly desire her wallpaper for my blog, wouldn't you?
