Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Sunday-ish Swap 9/24/2013

Yes, it’s Tuesday.

But I was soclose to finishing the first part of the new Lizzie*Kate 2013 Mystery Sampler “Holly and Hearts” that I had to delay.  Here’s the completed Part 1:

Fabric: Picture this Plus Doubloon (32-ct Belfast)

Fibers: DMC

Started: 9/15/2013

Part 1 Complete: 9/23/2013

Weeks and I have a rough history, so I chose to use DMC for this sampler and it made me much happier 🙂

 

Last year’s L*K Halloween Mystery included a handful of beads in each part.  None were charted for this one, but I’m going to add a few anyway.  In the tree band, there are a few individual stitches charted that I’ll bead instead and in the bottom snowflake band, I will add beads to the centers.

Speaking of that band… there’s a small error in the chart:

 

In the far right snowflake, the center line should have an extra stitch to make him match his brethren in the row.  I didn’t notice until after I had finished the band, so mine will continue to be unique, but thought I would bring it to your attention if you prefer symmetry.

For the remainder of this week, I’m picking up my hexes:

  1. Congrats on finishing Part One and thanks for the heads up on the snowflake. I haven’t gotten to that part yet.

  2. That turned out wonderful! I’ve been debating whether I want to stitch it or not, and seeing your piece makes me think I do. I really like beads you added, too. Well done!

  3. The first part fo the mystery is looking great.
