How was your weekend? Mine was rather lazy, but lovely all the same. My husband and I just sat around watching movies from the library and I stitched away on my Winter Sampler. I started this back in November and it's supposed to be a countdown to Christmas but I didn't finish it in time. My goal is to get it finished by next Christmas!
I didn't have the right count linen so my mom sent me this waste canvas to use over some linen I have. It's been really nice! But I think for my next project I will get the right kind of linen. I think it will look less messy when it's finished! But for this project I'm happy with it!
This is seriously so much fun to stitch! I never really liked cross stitch but Amanda and Ashleigh have converted me with all their cute patterns! You should go check them out at The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery! Seriously, I think I'm addicted for life. I also signed up for the Monthly Woodland Sampler pattern which I am super excited to get started on! It will be so fun to get a new pattern emailed to me each month! It's like getting a present every month!
This weekend I finally got to stitch my favorite square, the penguin! I have an obsession with penguins! Isn't this one so cute?
And a fruitcake! I changed the color of the stand because if this fruitcake had come from my kitchen, it would most likely be on an aqua cake stand. ;)
What did you do this weekend? Try anything new?
