A New Start & a birthday gift!

First let me show you the adorable birthday gift from Vonna - isn't it too cute? It's laying on my stitching because I'm getting ready to put my floss on it in just a sec! For those that don't know, it's a JBW design & Vonna stitched on her own baked & basted fabric. It's adorable & I love it! :-)


My new start is Lizzie Kate's ABC Lesssons. OF COURSE I'm changing the colors, but still using all Crescent Colors & a couple of DMC, white & ??, can't recall at the moment. The brown is the new German Chocolate, the red is the new Red Ribbon, the blocks of color behind the letters is Peanut Brittle.... I can't remember what other colors I pulled out, but I didn't want to use pastels. I wanted just a neutral color behind the "alphabet blocks" & I tried about 6 colors before I decided on this one. The fabric is 32 ct Antique Ivory (my "standard" fabric I guess as I use it so much) & I'm SAL'ing with Vonna & Terry. I hope to get more done on it soon.



I'm going to be stitching with a few friends tomorrow... wish you could join us too! Have a great weekend & happy stitching!
