Christmas Caper is coming right along. What a fun stitch!
I finished the top of the chimney last night and I have a good start on the bricks.
The chimney is a simple square Mosaic in a very light tan Watercolours. I used the same thread for the grout.
The bricks are also in Watercolours and I used the Alternating Oblong Cross. I really like the way that is turning out! I had quite a time finding just the right stitch that would give texture without a noticeable direction. The bricks are too large (10 threads high) to use a brick stitch!
I will go to my LNS tomorrow to get the rest of the thread I need so Big Guy can have a head!
My new counter tops are in and the kitchen is put back together.
I LOVE my new counters! They are Silestone (quartz) in a color called Stellar Snow. Aptly named, it is white & gray with shiny silver sparkles! I also got a new undermount sink, stainless with deeper bowls. It is great! No more grout to clean!
I'm still pretty busy though & not getting in a lot of stitching time. A friend is arriving today and will stay about a week. We will have a lot of fun shopping and stitching and we have a mini needlework retreat to go to all day Sunday.
Oh, and by the way, Happy Anniversary to this blog! It is 3 years old. Thank you followers and readers!
