Stitching for Fun

The Christmas deadline stitching is done and now, what little stitching time I have, is for FUN! Woohoo!  I bought this Mill Hill button and beaded kit last year and never got around to it. Last week a computer-free friend asked me to order three frames for some of these kits, so I ordered the frame for this one at the same time.  And logically, since I have the frame, I should stitch the piece.  I have to admit to more frogging than I normally fall prey to, but perhaps that's because I rarely stitch pictures these days. Most of my samplers don't involve this much 'confetti' stitching.  Now I'm wondering if my love of samplers may be, in part, based on my increasing inability to count!  Whatever....

Can you see the cardinal and the trees? The mailbox and ribbons are not recognizable yet. I know this because my husband thought the ribbons (the red area near the bottom) might be a face!

  1. OMG! I didn't see it until you said it but it does look like a face!! Leave it to the hubs to point that out. Now, that's all you will see even after its finished!!
