Last week I had a wonderful visit
with my daughter and son-in-law
in the Sunshine State
despite the weather.
We shopped and played and
enjoyed the local bird life.
Flying time was approximately 4 hours
and amazingly you can get a lot of stitching done.
Working on a red work embroidery project,
"Trimming the Tree",
made it pretty easy dealing with only
one floss color.
I loaded 12 needles ahead of time,
put on my sea bands,
and was able to finish the embroidery
on the two flights.
The embroidery is the fun part.
Making it into a pillow seems to
take more time, at least for me.
I added some buttons and beads
instead of pom poms and french knots.
I made the pillow smaller than what the pattern said.
The piece of red plaid wool I wanted to use
for the scalloped top was smaller than
what the pattern called for.
I actually had enough red ric rac,
and the kit for covering buttons.
If you haven't covered a button in a while,
you're missing out of some fun.
It's not hard and
you get a great coordinated look.
(The simple things can humor me
Despite the fact the weather
here in Colorado is extremely
hot and very dry
this delightful wintery pattern
is done and ready whenever the
seasons change again.
I'm hoping my next flight
will go as smoothly.
My stitching is packed
along with my party dress.
Until Next Time-
