I did accomplish the grass on the plane! It was over 250 stitches for each row and there were 5 rows!! I learned something about what I like to stitch. The big houses are worth the repetition but row after row of grass was really boring, It even tired my eyes!!!! I will also show you the small I am stitching.
Sorry for the crooked grass. I never press my stitching until I am finished. I am seriously thinking about making a change in this design. A big box that says A Ghoultide Welcome is part of the chart. I am thinking of skipping that part and just having the very pretty border go below the grass. If not, I will have a lot more of the long rows of fill stitching. Plus, I kind of like the sampler appearance of it without the words. Stay tuned!
Here we have"Summer in Nantucket". So far I have only changed the color of the red house. The chart by Plum Street Samplers called for a sort of reddish brown that I did not like. I also am stitching on antique white (I have no idea where the color you see came from) so I had to change the whale as it would not have shown up on the off white fabric. I am having lots of fun with this one.
I came home to my Mock Orange in full bloom. The smell is just heavenly!
The fushias are also in full glory!
I will end with this whimsical little fountain decoration. My DH rarely sees something he loves. This little aunt did the trick!
Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you are all having a good week!
