"Weather vane Cross Stitch and some new cushions."
I set myself a personal challenge to finish this cross stitch this month. Put the last stitch in yesterday.
I had to change the colours in the sheep. The original sheep colour was far too light. I stitched it at night under the Daylight lamp and the next day it was a "ghost" sheep. You couldn't see it at all. I am happy with it now, after all the sheep around here aren't snowy white. I will give it a wash when we have some sunny weather then do the lazy daisies and french knots just before I take it to the framers.I don't want to get the stitches squashed down too much.
Sewing was last Friday. I made up two cushions with the last of the American themed fabric.Very quick and easy, no quilting with zips in the back.
