April 13, 2017

First let me start by saying I didn't get this posted because my technology failed me last night. I did have my post ready so here it is!

Half a Dozen
The Cricket Collection

I've had this pattern in my stash for a long time. I have visions of getting these stitched individually for myself and displaying them each year. I haven't even stitched one of them yet!

I am planning to stitch them on 10 ct Tula with perle cottons. I have a couple of pretty pieces of purple fabric ~ I know you're surprised! LOL 

I plan to stitch the Violets (33 x 42) first, followed by the Robin (33 x 42), then the Beeskep (37 x 42). I have bought Caron Watercolours for the main color in each of the three. For the robin, I've purchased one for the pretty wing, as shown in the ornament at the top left. They're really quite small and wouldn't take long to stitch. It's the finishing that might slow me down. I just think they're so sweet. There's really no excuse for not getting them stitched before now. 

Pray for me. I need WAY more time to stitch all of the fabulousness in my stash!!!

  1. They're lovely. That is quite a small stitch count for each one. I'm sure the finishing won't be too bad.

    1. Thanks for your support, Kerry. I really should be able to get them stitched.
