I started this project back in the summer it’s called Random Threads and is designed by Erica Michaels Designs. I used Gloriana SIL threads one strand over 2 to stitch it. It’s my first finished piece using silk. I started another piece before this one but this one spoke to me a bit more, it’s just under 6” square and I’m going to finish it as a small pillow.
I like to personalize my pieces by putting a moon and star somewhere in the design and as you will see the original design had a heart on it.
I also decided to add my initials and finishing date stitched 1 strand over 1 thread at the bottom.
Here is the pattern cover
My next finish in the same evening was Winter Wonderland from The Snowball by Thy Needle and Thread Brenda Gervais
I chose to stitch it on the Balsalt Splash Evenweave Lugana by Zweigart that I stitched my 3 snowmen on last year. This also will become a pillow.
Happily Sunday was a lovely break from all the cold snow weather and before the current Atmospheric River started on Monday. We are supposed to have at least 2 waves and up to around 100mm of rain. Not as bad as the series we had in November, but flooding is a possibility once again.
The ice has pretty much Ed left the river for the moment but there is a lot of debris stuck floating around.
I received a shipment from 123 Stitch on Monday and got these three patterns along with some linen for the snowman piece, I also go some long awaited Garden Gate floss which was no where to be found for several months. My Away We Ride was supposed to have it but I substituted another thread.
This is hopefully my next finish for 2022 I have some motifs to stitch and it will be done. It is a free design from Plum Street Samplers call Coffin Buzz.
I saw this on Facebook the other day and couldn’t resist sharing it.
