I started a new Frank Lloyd Wright cross stitch picture today. This one depicts the stained glass window in the ceiling of his office at his home in Oak Park, Illinois. Our family toured FLW's home in Oak Park in 2013 when we were visiting Chicago. I remember seeing this window in his office when were on the tour.
This is about 6" by 11" when finished so it should not take as long as the Fountain Glass Window to complete.
There are only three colours in this window and I am hoping I have enough of each colour to complete the picture so I won't have to go begging to all of you to search your stashes for older matching thread like I did with my previous project!
My daughter has also been doing some cross stitching on her Prague cityscape. I spy some swans...
I have signed up for Sarah Fielke's "Coming Home" BOM for 2019. I have been wanting to do some appliqué for a while now and have jumped in with both feet--this quilt will fit our queen sized bed when it is done. Today, I picked out the background fabrics for each border. The bottom fabric was already in my stash and I purchased the other two dotty fabrics today. I have plenty of fabric in my stash for all of the piecing and appliqué parts of the quilt. I also picked up the other supplies I need for this project.
My sewing room is coming along as far as being tidied up. I have spent several hours in the last couple of weeks getting things put away and clearing off surfaces. It is looking much better and I will be able to work on my new projects without having piles of fabric falling over on top of me.
There will be stitching in the car tomorrow on the new cross stitch picture for Slow Sunday Stitching. I will link up with Kathy in the morning.
