Now that I finished a few heart mats (and given them all away), I am back to working on my Berks County Floral. I don't have too much more to go. Yeah! It was started back in October, for Pete's sake! Hopefully the next time I show it to you it will be completed and I can get a good picture of it. These pictures are not real crisp. They were taken without a flash. With a flash, the colors were horrible!
I also started working on a little cross stitch piece. Saturday I went to a cross stitch shop that I hadn't been to before. The shop was HUGE with many, many models displayed. There were more "primitive" type designs than in the shop I went to last week, but still not what you can find at a site like Pattern Mart. I did buy a few small pieces of linen and picked up this freebie chart. The designer is Lee of Falling Star Primitives. I bought a couple of her patterns at the fall show at Malabar Farm, but of course they are not yet stitched. She does have some really great primitive patterns. I think I've said it before when I've done a little stitching, but I forgot how much I truly love counted cross stitch. I find it so relaxing!
I've finally decided what I am going to work on at the hook-in this weekend at Sauder Village. It is "Little Dog", a pattern by Maria Barton of Star Rug Company. The design in 19" x 19.5" and has very little detail. My kind of pattern!!! Let's see how much I can actually hook in two days.
Tomorrow would have been my Mom's 92nd birthday. Miss you Mom :)
