Finally Red Riding Hood stitching is finished...
I had hoped to have this completed long before now, never-the-mind, it is ready for final completion. I did make changes and still not sure about the final outlook it will have. I found this calming to stitch. Thank you Isobel for a wonderful design. I also finally finished the stitching for an ornament...
It is Be Merry Angel by Giulia Punti Antichi. This is from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornaments issue of 2014. When I first saw this I wanted to make it but kept thinking "these are not Christmas colors". But finally I did gather up my supplies (32ct linen from bin) and here it is ready for completion. I know she will be lovely when completed. Yesterday w2as a crazy monsoon storm day. I was driving home from therapy when the sky turned dark and the winds were blustery. Debris and dust began to fly everywhere as I sat at the stop light. The car actually rocked with the winds and finally as I pulled into the garage, it broke loose. The dust was thick and the wind very strong. Shortly, the rain began and later last evening another rain moved in with thunder and lightening..... very interesting day! I expect today to be quiet and storm free.... I would like to spend some time reading and thinking about my finishing of the ornament. Hope your day is a quiet one...Thank yo for your kind words and for visiting with me.....enjoy the day.
