I have been sitting and stitching the last few days.
Yesterday was a fall nor-eastern in New England
which came flowing up the gulf stream
and deluging rain all day and into the night.
We got more rain in 24 hours than for Hurricane Lee
and our cellar is wet again from the over saturated ground.
Fortunately it is sunny day today
for drying everything out.
I am taking my stitching out to my yard in a few minutes to enjoy the sun.
I am getting a head start on
I started this Halloween Mix and Match Cross Stitch
project in 2020 as part of first
The border grid setting layout is a free design and may be found in the link below:
This is as far as I got with the stitching at that time
before I tucked it all away in my project bag for another day.
That day has finally arrived!
Lori Holt at Bee in My Bonnet has just released
a new set of Stitch Cards:
These lovely fall themed motifs are the perfect addition
to add to the Mix and Match with the Halloween themed set!
It also makes the Mix and Match much easier than the original plan
as that one pulled together motifs from several different patterns.
As I am a very slow stitcher and want to complete this project
before the witching hour this year,
I have already started work by stitching the grid border
for the stitch card motifs.
I am using DMC Floss for this project.
The grid is Black 310, which can be found in the
which includes flower thread bobbins.
I did order extra DMC Black 310 Floss as needed for the large grid
and DMC 471 Light Avocado Green Floss for the inner motif frames
I am stitching on hand-dyed stormy gray 11 count Aida.
