I was stitching like mad last night trying to get the wording completed on The Rain Fell. Mission accomplished!
The Rain Fell - 27 June 2009
I did have to frog a little but nothing that couldn't be easily fixed. While stitching the words I also realised that the flower head next to the tree trunk was one thread over too far and would have made the wording next to it out also, so I had to rip that out and redo. Luckily it wasn't a big flower. :) No matter how hard you try to get it right the first time, there's usually at least one mistake made that you discover later on.
I'm glad you're enjoying looking at my photos and thank you for the compliments on them. Although they're only progress pictures, I still try to make them interesting and appealing to the eye.
Hope you're all enjoying your weekend ~ happy stitching!

I was going to work on the Stacy Nash Group piece next, but now I'm looking at doing LHN The Rain Fell. Since it's Winter here I thought it would tie in well with the season. I've been itching to do a LHN or CCN design for a while now, and I think I need to satisfy that desire. I've got everything kitted and ready to go.
LHN - The Rain Fell kitted
I already had the fabric for it (Americana Blend), the Crescent Colours threads I'd bought another time, and the DMC threads I had in my stash. The only difference is the Peach DMC thread (754) I've substituted for 3774. I thought the 754 was a bit strong as it's meant to be a skin tone. The 3774 is a paler shade.
Now all I need is a bit of spare time to get started on it!

Moonlit Garden - 7 June 2009
Today has been a public holiday here (Queen's Birthday - though her actual birthday is in April), so it's been nice to have a three day weekend instead of two. I've been out and about most of the day, therefore no additional stitching got done. Hopefully I'll be able to get Moonlit Garden finished during this week. I'm well overdue for a happy dance!
