It is a pattern by Dan Jones with help from his wife Kay Jones of the Bakery Bears Podcast. The pattern is 1 pound, all proceeds going to support cancer research. I used Fancy Tiger Crafts Heirloom Romney in Blue Maize. I gave it to the Father type -- here he is modeling it.
I think he likes it. :D
I know this will be a shock but I'm stitching again!!!
I picked up an old WIP, the EF 1864 Sampler from an issue of Sampler and Antique Needlework Magazine. I need to check which issue it is. Here is how far I've gotten so far.
It's nice to be stitching again! But I'm not sure how I will fare with this one. I love Berlin woolwork, but it's not my favorite kind of stitching. And that's what the bulk of the piece is.
This weekend was the first time in a week that we've had any sunshine. Sunday was a glorious day! Sunshine and temps in the 60s. Yum! The father type and I took a nice long walk in one of our local state parks, visited a bookstore, and just had a nice day!
And when we got home, we opened the windows for the first time this year! Hooray! Someone enjoyed the fresh air immensely.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
