Stitching Girl correction

A correction for my Stitching Girl w/Dog chart: I've changed "c" symbols color (3024) to 841 light brown. The other color was too gray!

I'm working the chart and finding it tiny and just what I wanted. But, everyone should let me know if they have questions or things come up...

On her skirt, look carefully. There are several "." amongst the diamond shapes. I meant these as roses on her dress. You can either cross stitch them or make french knots. I've made them french knots.

Stitching Completed!

Oh, boy, I don't know how, but I finished stitching this tonight even with my bum arm and all! :D I was thinking of lining it with a gorgeous Kaffe Fasset fabric that I have, but it just took the whole piece over and smothered the stitching!! LOL Thus, this quiet little cabbage green roses instead.
I added a little bee to the back, and some french knot rose buds. Wish the pictures would capture the true colors....alas I don't have a Nokia!! Can you see my matching purple metallic colors scissors? :)
Hugs, Deb

Stitching Girl with Dog Chart & Instructions

Here's the "Stitching Girl with Dog" chart. Can you print it and enlarge it? Please let me know.
Although the instructions say the chart is for 14 ct., I'm using 36 ct. fabric..linen...Light Sand, Edinboro. I love a small size.
In addition to the colors named, I'm adding these:
DMC: 3045, 733, 3364 , 3045 I'm going to use these at random to sprinkle in with the vines and leaves.
Have fun! Hugs, Deb

Little Finish & Freebie

In the distress of my horrendous pain in my neck, right shoulder, arm and fingers :{ I took to designing this week. Here's part of the DMC color palette. I was just in too much pain to find the rest of the colors in my stash so far. The chart, which is called "Stitching Girl with Dog" is seen partially in the upper right corner. I wanted to give it to you here as a freebie. Alas, I'm computer challenged, and I can't get it scanned and transported to my blog!! Rats! Though I haven't proofed it yet by stitching it, if any of you want a copy of the chart and instruction sheet, please just comment here or email me, and I'll send you one. It's a medallion, and I plan to design more of this little stitching girl.
Here is Karen's finished block for her Neighborhood RR. I added a strange little hedggie who climbed up to the roof and got stuck between the chimneys!! A big pink & raspberry bird...and some rain showers under a happy blue cloud. Thanks for all of your suggestions. Hope Karen likes her block! Now it's flying off to Bine's house where she'll add the last block before it all returns home to Karen!!
Must get off the computer and save my arm! Have happy weekends, everyone. Love and hugs to you all, Deb
