Excellent news......another WIP is done :) Well, it was done 2 days ago and my brain was literally all over the place yesterday.
You know from alot of my past posts, that we like a good old fashion baked item. Well, whether we bake it or if we buy it, we always like it. So, as promised, I wanted to share this cake I baked on Saturday morning for the picnic we had.
So digging back into the challenge bin, I came up with a few others that I want to work on, and again, these WIPs might be sidetracked by new starts (i.e. Dorothy Walpole) until then.....this is what I had in my hands last night:
Isabella Johnstone from SANQ Summer 2010 using 45ct vintage lentil (I think), along with the called for Belle Soie silks. Laying next to one of my gorgeous new project bags (I will have to take some more pics of those later). Interesting enough the finished size of my Isabella is going to just be a smidge larger in length/width then One Blue Bird on 40ct. I cant get enough of this 45ct, it all just looks so cute in this size! If you have never tried it, it is worth it. I know a friend of mine has started her first piece on 45ct (the new one in the SANQ Summer 2011 ?? magazine with all the great color-- I forget the name right now) she is doing a FANTASTIC job on it, and actually admits to liking it alot!!!! Not as bad as she thought that is for sure. I cant wait to see her progress on it. It doesnt take long to get adjusted to it.
Summer is here and the heat is on. No complaints-- just crack open a nice refreshing beverage and pick up your stitching. What could be better??!!!!
