Stitching pics!

I finally got around to pulling some pics off the digital camera (can you believe the battery needs to be replaced already??? Yeesh).

Bent Creek's "EduCATed." I'm stitching it on 28-ct. flax linen (at least, I think it is linen....), and using some but not all of the hand-dyed threads. Obviously I'm using the Barn Gray GAST, and the Beige WDW, plus a few others.


"Bonding" spiral from Landmark Tapestries. I had an old piece of navy Aida to use up, and since this pattern called for the corners to be stitched in navy, I figured this would save some time and floss. The colors remind me a bit of 1970s upholstery...but it is growing on me. I can see it finished as a bright and funky pillow, perhaps?

I've also spent a bit of time over the past few days re-working our personal website. It was getting way too cluttered, and the giant finished project pics were hogging all my file space. If you want to check it out, the main page is http://ekh64.homestead.com -- Stitching page is http://ekh64.homestead.com/stitching.html. All my finished projects are now just links to the individual pages in my Cyberstitchers gallery -- gosh , I hope Cyberstitchers doesn't shut down, because then I'd really be up the creek!

Oh, and I gave in to the February blahs, and ordered 2 of the Fantasy Faire ornies from ABC Stitch. I chose Black Swan's "Christmas Guardian" and Dragon Dream's "Proof". Yay! Now this afternoon I'm off to the LNS to pick out framing for the baby birth sampler I finished earlier. Hmmm, to shop or not to shop, that will be the question... *hehehehe*

I *love* the colors in the Bonding spiral... so nice and vibrant, especially against the navy Aida.

Your EduCATed is coming along nicely. The colors in Bonding are so pretty. I had a look at your website too. You've done some nice work.

Both those look great! I think the Bonding spiral would make a great pillow, very cheerful. :D
