a little bit of progress
I have been stitching a little bit on the monthly teacup designs that were out a couple of years ago or so. I collected them but never stitched them. I stitched this yesterday. There are lots of reflections from the magnifier- we are adding more light but not that much yet so evening pictures are always after dark. That is the top of the cap and the handle of the cup. I am going to keep working on this tonight. I would love to get this finished and move onto another month. At this rate it would be February's cup. I have also been stitching on Dorothy Walpole, my January 1st start. I am loving this. I decided to move all the way across the top because I wanted to be sure I had cut the fabric correctly. I was afraid I was too narrow but no, it is good.
I am also working on the monthly January Blackbird stockings. I just picked one up last night. It was great fun and hope to finish it tonight. I am so enjoying these designs.
Santa by Homespun Elegance is coming along. I have taken it with me to my stitch group but it works for me for late night stitching when I am tired. I am waiting for the thread to come in for the bag Santa is carrying but I still have plenty to do.
Hope you have some stitchy time this week.
