After we'd unpacked and done the shopping, I went to the craft store to get some more threads. When I got home, I realised I forgot to get the dark grey for Sing to the Lord... maybe I'll go back again tomorrow...
Last night, I was flicking through the completed project pages on this blog. I realised that the Winnie the Pooh design I was planning to do for my friends baby is actually fairly similar (them all sitting together) but also quite different (background & foreground details) to the one I did for her first child in 2010. This is what I was going to do:
It's called "In the Meadow". When I was going through my threads before we left, I realised the pattern was in Anchor threads so I had to get a conversion to DMC chart. So, as I was going through my thread stash for the colours, I found another Winnie the Pooh design that I had forgotten I even had. It is from the same series as the original design I did for the first child, so I thought it would be better to do that in this case. Therefore, the Winnie the Pooh design I have started tonight is: Walk This Way
Here is my progress for this evening:
I love the bright colours in these designs.
We've got another day off tomorrow thanks to the Melbourne Cup (who can argue about having a public holiday for a horse race!) More house stuff to get done but I hope to get a lot more stitching done too.
