I'm not snowed in, but I did finish stitching this Fat Guy that is snowed in :)
part of the 6 Fat Men Series

Stitched on 28 ct. Wichelt Amber Linen
Stitched with Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colors overdyes as charted
Here's where my entire project stands as of this moment. I am stitching all 6 Fat Men on one piece of linen and I've got lots of ideas about how to finish this seasonal cutie.
I love to decorate our home "with the seasons" so this one won't be framed as it will only be out for one part of the year. But like I've said, I'm spinning around different options in my brain each time I stitch on it. So have I sold you guys on these handsome fatties? :) If not, how can I get you to capitulate? These are so fun to stitch, sort of just easy, ya know?! And after something as hard as the Quaker Virtues page I just got done stitching, easy peasy made for a nice change.
Can I also say...
I have really fallen for this Amber Linen, both in texture and color. So much so I bought some more of it (1 yard) for another project that I am starting over. Here's a little secret.....I started BBD's Anniversaries of the Heart last year. I struggled with linen colors as you know we didn't see all of the designs and that first design was so muted in colors and tone. Well anyway...I did January's and February's designs and just didn't like the way they looked on the linen I chose.
As I have been stitching on the Fat Guys...
I kept on thinking how pretty the color of the linen is against the colors and I kept thinking about the projects that I want to work on in 2012 (I know....) and I just bit the bullet and bought a yard and am going to start January's design well....in January. But you know how I am with my big ideas that never come to fruition....so I'm just zipping my lip and we'll see what January brings.
That does it for me today folks...
so until next time I'll be keeping my hands to work and heart to God, just like always!
Hugs and love,
