I love everything about a new start... Starting a new project is so exciting.
Yes I have started a new cross stitch project, and why not! I bet your all wondering what too!! I did indeed say it's a design by a designer I have not stitched anything by.... Shocker!! Ha ha
It's a pretty little design I luckily won last year in a Stitchers Anon raffle...
It's a Tralala design called Chasse a l'oeuf.... And rather cute looking too!
Here is my journey so far..
Preparing the threads was a nightmare for me, naturally I changed a few! I found a gentle art thread! Yes one! And happened to be orange too...called, bittersweet, good enough for the carrots I thought!
I have since changed DMC 523 to 3364 as I liked it better! I decided to stitch it on 18 count white Aida, just for a change!
And the design...
I think it's a spring Easter design.... I just love the carrots!
And stitching wise, well I have been stitching none stop today! Jon made a joke asking if I was going to finish it today! Ha ha
It's adorable.. You think???
So all I have left to do on this is the grass bottom with hearts and carrots and the border....arrrrghhh a border! No!! This will be known as a pretty ivy flower trim! I can do this!!
I don't actually know much about this designer... I guess there are/must be some of you out there that have stitched Tralala designs? It's stitching up pretty quick too.... Maximum of two days this will take me I am sure. It's making me smile as I stitch, so all is good!
I may have started something else by the next time I pop in! Ha ha so much time on my hands!!
Friday tomorrow...where has the week gone!? Time actually means nothing in this house ha ha unless we have a hospital appointment! Friday Han and I are alone all day as jon is getting picked up by patient transport and going to his own hospital appointment! It's a routine physio appointment, I hope the day goes ok for him and they don't torture Erm.... Work him too hard! Ha ha
Until I next pop in, remember to smile :)
