Cannon Beach and Old McMary's

Well, I have been making good progress on the Cannon Beach piece. I really like stitching this one so far, it's fun! I have changed the color of the kid's hair, to blonde! Like my kids :D Other than that I have kept it all the same.


Then, I started Old McMary's by The Workbasket. There are several things about this chart I don't like. They call for 3 kinds of Kreinik metallic thread, on a sampler like this??? I just don't see that looking right at all. So, when I get to those colors I'll find some hand dyed threads to use instead of the metallic. Here is my progress from last night on it. :D So far so good!

I hope all is well for everyone! Thanks for your comments on my Be Happy finish! You are so sweet.

Definitely switch out the Kreinik if you're not happy about using it in a sampler. I love how people change and alter patterns to suit their own needs and tastes, even if I have such a hard time doing it myself!

I have never seen the beach piece before - but it looks like a cute one!

OH is that haystack rock?? Where ever did you find the design?

Vonna said...

WoW! You are really flying through these projects! That's quite outstanding progress!

Hi Just happened upon your blog and you've done some lovely stitching. I love the cube thing you did. I think Carol gave me a link to show me how to do them so I will have a go I think now I have seen yours. xx

Old McMary's calls for stuff like that? Indeed, it seems out of place. It's a design I love but have resisted the urge to buy (so far! LOL). Great progress on both pieces.

Oh, Old McMary's is on my Wish List and I love it... I never would have thought it would have Kreinik threads in it tho'... I think I would have to switch them out as well... Thanks for the head's up! :-)

You're are making lovely progress on both WIP's Heather... :-)
