Christine came over for a hand stitching night this week. She started a new wool project and I continued to work on my counted cross stitch project, "Tree of Life" based on a stained glass window by Frank Lloyd Wright. I did lots of backstitching this week and completed the centre section of the window. Near the end of the week, my husband and I took a long car trip and I brought Frank along for the ride. I stitched in the car for several hours and made great progress, until I dropped the needle. My husband pulled off the road at the next exit and we both looked for the needle, but to no avail. I had to put Frank away for the rest of the trip...
You can see that I have started the cross stitching at the top of the window. (I took the picture in the car so sorry for the bad lighting!)
Today, I was able to find some more needles so I am good to go for some more stitching tomorrow. (They are called tapestry needles...they should do the job for my cross stitching.)
I took these pictures in my garden this week. This grass is in a planter on my patio.
Same grass, different views...
These pink flowers are in bloom on my clethra bush:
Happy Slow Sunday Stitching!
How pretty the grass and blooms are. Frank is going to be gorgeous. I lost a needle last week. Looked all over. Then vacuuamed like crazy so the dogs wouldn't step on it wherever it was.ReplyDelete
Then I found it stuck in the quilt. :)
Great progress. Such pretty blooms you have in your yard. I use a magnet to find my lost needles.ReplyDelete
Your FLW is coming so well--this will be gorgeous--enjoy stitching today...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
Don't you just hate it when you lose your needle?!?! UGH! Hope you don't find it with your skin sometime in the future! Enjoy Frank today!ReplyDelete
Oh I lost a needle on a trip once. Learned to pack extras. Nothing worse than not being able to stitch when you have the time.ReplyDelete
Nothing worse than a needle loose somewhere it shouldn't be! Frank is looking very promising.ReplyDelete
I don't like cross-stitching in the car because I am always afraid that I will drop the needle. Frank is coming along great. Enjoy your stitching.ReplyDelete
If I drop a needle. I don't tell my hubby. He freaks out. When he is not around, then I go looking for it.ReplyDelete
Hope your foot or other sensitive part doesn't find that lost needle by accident! I take a needle book with me when I travel.ReplyDelete
