19th January Project-Start

I decided to give myself a break last night, a start an 'easy' project.  'Easy' you ask?  Yes, and you are reading correctly too :)  I started an old Sheepish Design- American Beauty. 
I had to dig deep for a piece of linen that would work, I ended up choosing Birds of a Feather Black Crow 32ct with a variety of Crescent Colors, WDW and GA threads.  It calls for SNC and AVS, but I didnt really want to look for the silks, I just opened up my cotton thread bin and chose colors at random.  Pretty easy to do, you should try it sometime.  You never know what you are going to come up with, and it is great fun to boot! 
I am pleased with the start, and even looking positive and put the date of 2011 on it.  Why not?  If I cant get this done this year, I might as well pack up now and through all the stash I have the heck out. 
But, this piece has a combination of cross stitch and satin stitch, which is fun, adds depth for sure.  Also, working on 32ct is something else, I can literally see through it!  LOL.
So much fun these projects, so much fun!!!!


  1. You'll have this one done in no time! L.

  2. Another one of my favorites! I stitched that one for a shop model several years ago and they wanted me to use the called for silks...they kinda drove me crazy cause they "squeaked"! But anyway, I stitched it again and still need to frame it someday.
    Yours is just gorgeous!

  3. ooo its looking lovely and I am positive you will finish it :) love mouse xxxx

  4. I don't think I have seen this one before. I really love, love, love the pinks!!!

  5. Your work is beautiful.. Enjoy!!

  6. I have just had a look at your last 5 projects adn WOW! they are nearly all BAPs. But they promise some wonderful and happy stitching time. ATS is a design that I alo want to stitch one day and I think I'll get to it when I'll be retired and can devote a lot more time to stitching than now.
