Yesterday I finally decided I felt good enough to so something besides watch TV Land and reruns of Law and Order so I finished up these:
They are the April Blackbird Stockings. I am working my way through the year. Here is January:
Good grief, did I really start this project in 2009??? This is embarrassing. Here is February:
After seeing Siobhan's stockings, I decided to redo the alphabet one. It is the only one I have done so far in overdyed threads (the rest are DMC) and wouldn't you know that is the one I dropped in the snow and the threads ran. I liked her purple version so much better so I used a strand of two different purples. My new one is on the left - I still have to sew it with the backing fabric, that's why you see so much linen around the stitched area.
And then here is March:
Back in April, I was pretty smug, thinking I was on track! Where did May go? This afternoon I pulled the floss for May and want to get busy on that month, Do you think I can catch up? LOL We'll have to see!
Here they are all on a little feather tree that I have had for a zillion years:
I do believe I will have to find a different way to display them. And just for fun, here are two more that I did a couple of years ago:
I'd like to do a few more of these!
Summer is now in full swing around here. Hannah has started swimming lessons, it is nice and hot, I have a class reunion this weekend (hello, Class of 1972!!), and the 4th of July is right around the corner. I have a trip planned to go see one of my favorite cousins, and we have a camping weekend or two planned. I hope I can keep myself healthy for the rest of the summer, I don't have time to be sick.
