Two Weekend Happy Dances!

Wow I can't believe how much stitching I got done this weekend. The weather was nice up at the cottage on Saturday but it rained all day today (Sunday) so what did I do but sit inside and stitch!

Saturday night I finished Teresa Wentzler's Tole Heart from The Country Stitch Monthly February 1989 (thanks for the loan Erin!). Its stitched on 28ct Ocean Fantasy Linen from Silkweavers and it looks awesome!

So that night I got a start on the next project I packed for up at the cottage, from the same magazine issue, actually on the same page as Tole Heart was a design called Flower Bed, there's no designer listed so I can't tell you who it was by. Its a sweet little cat I finished this afternoon on 25ct Light Blue Dublin Linen using DMC floss.

For the rest of the afternoon I put in some time on Michael Powell's Mini Cottages 2, I think I might continue to work on it the rest of the evening. OR will I be tempted by my next start, again from the same magazine as the previous two HD's is Teresa Wentzler's Carousel Rabbit. Decisions, decisions!

Wow, Dani, that was FAST! The tole heart looks great on that fabric. When I did mine on the tea monaco, I had to change the colors a bit because the light green vines barely showed.

Can hardly wait to see you carousel rabbit....and just to tempt you more, I have the magazine issues with the rest of the carousel animals, too....hehehe

Your small cross stitch pictures are so cute, Dani! I have taken the liberty of printing off a copy of some of them, so I can have a go at them myself one day..if I ever get around to it!
