Just Another Button Company 2010 Stitch Every Day Series

The 2010 Stitch Every Day series by Just Another Button Company will begin in December and designed to compliment the Teapot and Cup of Tea series. The subject this year will be Teaspoons and yes, they won’t be ordinary teaspoons! You will be able to stitch these on just one large piece of fabric. They have chosen 30 ct. Weeks Havana, but other colors that coordinate with your kitchen would work well too as long as it is dark enough to contrast with parchment and straw Weeks Dye Works. They do suggest stitching it on something close to 30 ct. for buttons to be sized to scale. There will be a stitched “spoon rack” with space for twelve Teaspoons, 3 rows of four or stitch them individually if you wish. The price for them will fluctuate depending on the price of the buttons and floss. All we have for a picture at this time is a rough sketch. 196w x 298h. (Gentle Art, Weeks and Crescent Colours will be used)

Autumn Leaves

Finished this evening, Autumn Leaves by From Nancy's Needle.
This chart was gifted to me by Barb Hansen about a year ago, and I finally took the time to stitch it up. It is done on 18 count mono canvas with the suggested threads. I enjoyed doing this one very much and look forward to finishing other charts I have by the same designer.

How Many Scissors?

Recently, my son was over and saw all my Gingher Designer Scissors and asked how many scissors did I need. Silly boy! Need has nothing to do with it!

Here are the two newest members of the collection: Elena on the left, and Mia on the right.

A Prairie Schooler Finish

I finished this Prairie Schooler chart the other day. It is Weather Wise, done on 32 count cream Belfast linen with DMC floss.
It will be a Christmas gift for my favorite sailor. I just need to find a frame.

Fall Exchange

I received a wonderful package from Cynthia recently. It was my part of the Fall/Halloween/orange exchange at the Threads of Life board. I chose fall, and got some lovely fall things.

I sent my gift off to Sue, who also chose fall. It was a fun package to put together.
