Thought I would take a moment to play catch up, but first! A sneaky peek ahead to one of the next To the Beach releases!
I won’t ‘weigh’ you down with titles just yet!!
Read to the end – I promised I would give stitch counts for the series to help those stitching all 12 together!
What have I been doing since the last post?!?
We took our oldest to the State Special Olympics games in Ames, IA. A great weekend all around & he brought home 1 Gold, 1 Silver & a 4th place finish! woop – woop!
A quick trip to Pittsburgh with Bill …
to celebrate my Dad’s Birthday (one of those ‘significant’ numbers!)
Around that time, I released VINO – 5th in the Block Party series …
planted some posies …
& picked some berries!
& how about some Christmas ornaments (never too early to start!)
Hitting the road soon to teach a finishing class …
and in between I am working away on a new website!! I hope to go ‘live’ soon! (This blog will transfer to the new site – look out for a post with links telling you when & where!)
What else you ask? I’ve got a fun new club in the works with shopowner Lois of Elegant Stitch (I love her patience!!) – a designer series with StitchyBox & I just had a 2 hour conversation with Priscilla (my fav chalkboard friend!) today…nothin’ much!
Here are those stitch counts!
Released charts: Oh Whale – 92×61, A Little Cottage – 92×60, Adjust Your Sail – 91×59, Flock Together – 94×61, On Beach Time – 92×60, Starts in the Sky – 93×60
Remaining charts in order of release (stitch counts only): 93×62, 90×59, 92×60, 92×60, 92×60, 94×62
I have seen a few stitchers putting all of the charts on one cloth – awesome!! Leave at least 5 to 6 stitches in between – I have also seen stitchers shorten the design by a thread or 2 to make it fit – also a great idea!!
Enjoy the stitch!
