I have returned from Vacation
I have returned from my vacation and am happy to say it was very relaxing and therapeutic. I have come back with more ideas for rug and possible tapestry designs. While there I was able to complete the stitching of the 4 pillows shown below plus 2 more on a separate piece of gauze. I also started my Petunia rug and anticipate it will be finished in the not to distant future. I am in the process of deciding whether to put a fringe on this rug or not. I would love to hear your comments and opinions regarding this. Before I can fully finish this rug, I need to go out and purchase 2 more colors which I am hoping to do this coming weekend. These 4 pillows, once finished will go into my beachfront mansion and I will be offering the Petunia for sale.
Beginning some new stitching
My husband and I have decided to travel back to Antigua this year, and we are greatly looking forward to it. In preparation for the trip, I have chosen some small projects to do while away as I can never sit idle for too long. I have decided to do a bunch of cushions that all use the same colors.
I have mounted the gauze, pulled the colors I need, and have packed a little case of stitching to take with me on the plane (no scissors). I have also packed a small rug (The Petunia) in my checked luggage (with small scissors) in case I finish the cushions early. The Petunia doesn't take up much room and will be a perfect small project for me.
I know I had mentioned starting the Christmas rug in one of my earlier posts but felt this would be too large to take with me as it won't fit into the little box I have made for my travel kit. I guess it will have to wait for a while for me to start that one. I purchased a small wooden box at my local dollar store that was a perfect size to fit a small project. The box isn't very deep and will only fit a frame that is about 3.5" x 2.5" but will suit my needs.
My next post will be after we return, when I will have some photos of my stitching to show you.
My name is Yvette, and I will be writing this blog to tell you about the creative process that has gone into the creation of my Petitpoint patterns along with showing the stitching I have done of some of the rugs.
