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

Christmas in August?

When we last saw our intrepid stitcher, she was despairing over a seemingly incompatible floss and fabric combination (with good reason).

A dip into the stash turned up some promising blue linen, but sadly nowhere near as large as needed for the preferred design.

But inspiration struck. Why not stitch one if the smaller ones instead? A quick finish. Temptation satisfied. Then back to some of the other larger WIPs ever whispering for their time under the Ott.

Voila….

And still a large enough piece left to do the second small design.

For when temptation strikes again.
