Graduation Day

Well it's not actually a Graduation Day, but the project I was working on was called 'Graduation Day'. Note I say "was" because I am done. Whoo Hoo!

Graduation Day
designed by Pam Waters
stitched on 28ct Natural linen
with DMC thread

It's not quite as fun to look at as the 'Men of Baltimore' was, but I still enjoyed stitching this vine border. Making all the twists and turn and still getting it to match up in the end was so rewarding, I practically lept out of my chair. My DS actually said he liked it, now that's amazing.

The only other stitching I have done is on the Old Crow, and it really wasn't enough progress to warrant another picture. Maybe by the weekend I can get in some serious stitching time. It is supposed to be cold and dreary with a chance for snow. Perfect stitching weather.

Although Saturday night is the Knit In at Gourmet Yarn and I may hang out there, to finish up a knitting project have that doesn't get touched at home. Who can knit when the stitching projects keep calling out?

I worked out my ordering snafu with the Silver Needle, so that order is on the way. I also emailed in an order to Shakespeare's Peddler and ordered online with Stitching Bits and Bobs. So lots of stash pictures are in the near future. I did end up ordering two of one design, which I will share with anyone that may want it later.

FYI, some of this pending stash will be little gifties for a few stitching friends so I will keep them hidden for a bit.

Happy Stitching.
CJ in OK ;-)

I like the font used for the wording, it is very elegant and the whole piece has a feel of fineness. I adore your needlepoint project a few posts back.

When you start browsing online needlework stores it is very hard not to order. I think that I have enough stash to open my own store. LOL.

I am looking forward to following your blog xx
