I have been so busy with work I have not had much time to update!
I went to a lock-in at In Stitches in Alexandria and won a door prize, a Blackbird Designs thread winder box pattern with a few chipboard thread winders and a chipboard circle box. I decided to spray paint the box a glittery silver and the thread winders each a different color of glitter paint. Well, the thread winders peeled and the box was a bit misshapen, so I decided to go to Michaels and get a wood box with a hinge and magnetic closure and wood cutouts, and they all turned out great!
I have sent the box and stitching to the wonderful Vonna, aka the Twisted Stitcher, to do the box top finishing for me. I hope to have it back by the end of next week. The picture had the stitching done in a red-colored variegated thread on beige fabric. I decided to go with all black thread on a hand-dyed fabric. Here are some pics.
I have done a tiny bit more on the Bothy Threads Alice In Wonderland kit.
And I have a spot on my wall to fill with a smallish piece, so I decided to stitch Heart In Hand's Always You.
I have also been reading still. You can check out my updates on Goodreads. And of course watching my shows. Two good movies I have seen lately, The Boy, which was creepy as hell, and Secret In Their Eyes with Julia Roberts. I recommend both!
Until next time...
