One side down and I still have not decided if I will have all four sides decorated or just one – I think I will do all four first and then experiment with it. I didn’t actually use a buttonhole stitch with this – I just started to stitch and this is what I came up with. It kind of looks like a buttonhole stitch but not quite.
This is the next one I am doing – they are not all in Christmas colors but will be a mixture. The plaid kept coming out a little blurry for some reason. I will do white french knots on this one and stitch the plaid down with the red and the blueish gray circles with the gray.
The quilting on Murrieta Stars from Saturday night. I will work some on the eggs and the quilting for Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy and part of the day will be spent painting the kitchen – It is a fast drying paint but I’m sure I will get in plenty of slow stitching time as well on breaks from the painting. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.
The new roof – it still looks odd without the big tree looming over it but I’m sure it will be a much “healthier” roof without it. I will be decorating for Xmas soon but I don’t put up much outside.
And the workshop looking good too.
