I stitched Country Cottage Needleworks Little Boy Blue over 1 on 32 lambswool. I used all the called for threads plus some Cloud from Crescent Colours (on the clouds and the boy’s shirt) I like the lighter color in the sky I think. I have an idea to stitch all six designs in this series over 1 like this and use them as ornaments on a nursery rhyme Christmas tree I have in mind. I bought the little frame at Wal Mart.
This had been a very productive week, lots of cross stitch orders coming and going, lots of production of new things and new design work on future things from Impie, Hattie & Bea….and then I was stricken. I can only guess it was food poisoning but by 6pm Wednesday I was really ill. I’ve joined the land of the living today but feel very week, I need to make up some time quick here in the workroom, luckily shipping of orders wasn’t impacted but Impie, Hattie and Bea all need to kick it in high gear to get caught up.
The cherry tomato plant I got at the farmer’s market last month is still doing well. I have about 12 little tomatoes on it at the moment and no yucky worms yet!
Wednesday afternoon while I was still feeling fine I baked this blueberry crumb cake, I’ve just had a piece (Tyler only ate 7/8 of the cake yesterday) and it’s really yummy. Marianne of Midnight Stitching sent me the recipe, we will be making this one again!
