From time to time, Diane gets a makeover. I sort through her contents and pull out projects that I still love but have decided to return to the stash stacks. Sometimes nothing comes out, but more kitted projects go in. This is one of those times.
This is "Topsy Turvy Bunnies" by Val's Stuff. So cute, bright and fun. Mom & Me Forever has the models on display and I fell in love with the pillow.
"The Bunny Collection" from JBW Designs caught my eye recently. The Flowered Bunny is my favorite of the bunch, but I would like to stitch them all eventually.
That's two bunny projects in a row. Let's shake things up with "Not Forgotted" by Plum Street Samplers. I am not into halloween, but this design makes me laugh out loud. Lucky for me it was left out of the JCS special halloween issue and available for free on their website. Score!
I can't wait to start this one, "Death by Candy Corn" from The Scarlett House. It calls for 40 count but I settled on this piece of 36 count off-white mystery fabric.
Super cute little Lizzie Kate "Farm Sampler!" I will be stitching on 30 count WDW Straw fabric, just what the chart calls for. Isn't that a shocker!
Lizzie Kate's "Prayer Connection" will be stitched over 2 on 32 count African Daisy Jobelan.
This Workbasket freebie is called Blue Flower and you can get it here along with a ton of other great designs. I saw this finished and framed at Stitcher's Station but instead of blues the flower was done in purple and yellow. I admired it very loudly, so Mary sent me the conversion info. (Thanks Mary!) I took the conversion a step further (trying to kit from my stash) and here's what I came up with.
I saw this finished and framed at Stitches, Etc. and loved it! It is "Lazy Alphabet" by La-D-Da and Jeanne stitched it on 28 count Blue Jean Gingham linen.
This project , "Quilt VI" by Designs by Linda Myers, has been in my stash for quite a while. When I was a member of a local quilt guild I fell in love with (the idea of) the Dear Jane quilt, so this project is a must-do.
It's going to be a jolly holiday stitching this Mary Poppins design! I have 32 count Country Mocha Belfast pulled out but I can't settle on what fiber(s) to use. I think blue would look great on the fabric. I took it with me to Mom & Me last night (stitch night!) to get opinions. The consensus is DMC in the 930's range. (The chart calls for 2 colors.) While I like the way it looks, it seems a bit dull. Or very 1980's.
Terre De France.) I have a few more stitching gatherings coming up in the next couple of weeks, so more opinions will be sought. Decisions will be made. Feel free to weigh in here with your own ideas. All suggestions are welcome!
Did you notice all of the DMC I've been kitting with? I still like my plain ol' floss the best. That's all for now.
