I have been doing a little slow stitching this week. I have gotten these finished off with their peels last night while watching the last episode of Downtown Abbey in a quiet house while the others were at Aidan's Blue and Gold ceremony.
That means I can start on the next one - this is my last block from the December bunch. I need to cut out my fabrics so I can begin back basting. I think the flower will be the medium purple, with the dark purple center and green little peels on the edges.
Of course.... this box arrived this week. I have yet to open it. That might happen today... although I have been told to take it easy and not overdo. Sounds like a perfect day to slow stitch away. Does anyone have this frame and if so, did you stain it before putting it together? I am debating.... I think I will keep it unfinished and hope the hot and humid down here in Florida doesn't warp it. It will stay inside in the AC so I think it will be fine. My big 90x90 hand pieced trip around the world will be it's first customer.
