New Start: CCNs October Cottage

I started Country Cottage Needleworks October Cottage last night.  The fabric is 32 count Belfast Linen.  To save my life, I can't recall where or when I bought it.

I'm using cotton over-dyed floss from ThreadworX -- I love variegated floss -- my own conversion!

This is a large piece of linen and I intend to stitch Little House Needleworks October Girl next to it. 

My birthday is in October and this piece is just for me!

Happy Stitching!

Change of HEART.

As ye sew, so shall ye rip.

I don't like the heart I stitched in the right-hand quadrant of Celtic Heart.  It just doesn't look right.

What do you think?

I believe I'll frog it and do another heart instead.

I am so annoyed with myself.

Celtic Heart Happy Dance!

It's done!  I finished Celtic Heart (except for the initials)!

First Happy Dance in 4+ years!


Thankful Thursday! Celtic Heart Update

Good Morning Stitchers! Be Ever Thankful! 

I stayed up late and worked on Celtic Heart.   I've decided how to personalize it and may be finished by... this evening!

As you can see, I've got one area ready for one name and working on that last area now.  At least now I know I won't run out of silk.  I've just enough to finish it.

Wish me luck!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Very Slow Progress on Celtic Heart.

To quote Robert Burns, "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft a-gley."

In other words, I didn't get to stitch this past weekend.  Insert appropriate colourful metaphor here.

I did stitch for a couple of hours today.  I'm 3/4 of the way done and have two changes coming up as this is now going to be a gift for a loved one.  💜💚💙

Still hoping to have this finished by... New Years?

Goodnight, Ya'll
