January 16, 2017

Today was an extra day off due to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. A day to remember a great humanitarian who effected change through non-violent demonstration. I hope as we move into a new era in the United States, we can remember his example.

My project for today is from Cross Eyed Kat. I don't know that I've seen many patterns from her. I think I bought this chart in Plano, TX but I'm not 100% sure. It's the first of her Mini Impressionisms series. I don't know if Kathryn ended up designing any others or not. 

Anyway, I really like the look of this project. It's Texas Wildflowers. It's just a sweet little pattern that shouldn't take too much time, although it does have quite a bit of confetti stitching. You'll see from my WIP that I've only stitched all of one color. It's spread through quite a bit. I have also added a little bit of two other colors but still have quite a bit more to see any real progress with this one.

I'm off to discover another project. Hope you're all having fun finding things in your stash as well.

  1. That's a neat project, good luck with it!

    1. Thanks, Tiff! Something about it calls to me. I just can't explain it.

  2. It reminds me of a tapestry William Morris might do. I love his designs, and the whole Arts and Crafts style--furniture, wall coverings, lighting, houses, I'll take it all!

    1. There's just something peaceful and serene about it to me. I do want to get more stitching time in on it soon. I think it moves fairly quickly when I do work on it.
