While I am puttering along in slow motion with regards to any quilt projects, I have made headway with some cross stitch.
I took a break from A Year In Chalk and started a pattern that I've wanted to stitch from the minute I got it.
American Frontier by Tumbleweeds. Tumbleweeds is a division of Little House Needleworks.
This pattern has the Americana look I like.
Aside from a mistake in the bottom row, it was a pretty enjoyable piece to stitch.
I have two spots I spend time stitching. A chair in my bedroom and a chair in the family room. When the kids were in school I would stitch in my bedroom chair when they were getting home because I wanted to be nearby. (Single storey cape cod style house.) Now that the kids aren't around so much, I rarely stitch in there. The end result is that whatever piece I keep by that chair can take forever.
Case and point....Sweet Land of Liberty by Sue Hillis.
I only have two children left but it took me all summer to do the other four.
I may have to move this to my other stitching chair in hopes of finishing it up asap.
I am packing up American Frontier and a couple other finishes from earlier this year and heading to the frame shop. I would love to have Sweet Land of Liberty finished by the time I go pick up this batch. I think that means I need to move it to the family room stitching chair.
