Well, it didn't really slip my mind, it's just that this month has offered quite a few distractions from stitching on old stuff, and I find myself at the end of the month with nothing WIPocalypsy (yes, I just made that up) to share.
But never fear, for my needle has been flying through the linen all the same, and I now have permission to share at least some of what I've been working on. This month found me working on 3 models for Cherished Stitches, 2 of which will be released next weekend at the Baltimore needlework market. Since they are so close to making their debut, I've been given the go ahead to share my not-so-professional snaps of the designs I stitched on. First up is "The Sign of the Gravedigger". This isn't the best photo, as my work is unironed and therefore quite bubbly, but you can get a bit of an idea of what she's created:
I did find the time to do some non-model stitching this month. Lori of Notforgotten Farm shared a cute little freebie on her blog and challenged her readers to find a creative way of finishing the piece up. I don't know how creative my end product truly is, but I had a ton of fun putting it all together. I stitched the pattern on a piece of 36 count fabric from PictureThisPlus (the name escapes me at the moment) using a mishmash of various brands of overdyed cotton threads (so I totally jacked up Lori's color scheme). Here's my finished stitching:
Til next time, I hope everyone in the US has a great Labor Day weekend, and the rest of you have a great, nonholiday weekend!
