I didn't plan on starting anything new until later in the month BUT(famous last words) this was just screaming at me and it was too loud to ignore. I mean, I had the fabric, the floss, and the time(well maybe not the time but I made the time).
Here's how far I got over the weekend:
Piece: Blackstone Fantasy Garden
Designer: Ink Circles
Fabric: 28 count Antique White Jobelan
Stitched: 2 over 2(for the Celtic Knots), 1 over 2(for Blackwork)
Started: December 7, 2006
Modifications: If you look at the orignal, you'll gather pretty quickly that mine doesn't match. I'm attempting to change the colors. So far I've substituted DMC 803 and 814 for Carrie's Creation Threads in "Coffee" and "Gator Green". Those are the only two solids I'm using everything else will be varigated DMCs. I'll post the specifics once I get to each color.
Just some random thoughts on this. It's been quite a while since I stitched 2 over 2 and it feels HUGE and FAST. I almost forgot how to count and stitch properly after all the parking and row by row stitching I've been doing on my HAED projects.
***non-related: If anyone out there can think like a 4 year old, let me know. Rage got a Leapster L-Max for his birthday and he's "misplaced" his Letters on the Loose cartridge. For the life of me I can't find it, but is HAS to be somewhere in this house. We've already had two mini-meltdowns because he can't remember where he put it and at $25-30 a pop for games for this thing he won't be getting a replacement. Where would you leave something if you where 4? I've looked everywhere he frequents and I have a feeling it will show up when I'm looking for something else--you know how that goes.
