Convent's Herbal Garden Part 4

This picture came out a little better. I still have an outer border and then the gates beyond that. I had to order some floss I was missing (substituting for horrible Marlitt).

I got in some Just Nan mice and an owl. I'm looking forward to stitching those little pieces after this one.

Last weekend, a few of my local stitching friends got together to stitch and say goodbye to a friend going to Qatar. Loads of fun (and bittersweet)! We'll be taking a trip to ABC Stitch Therapy soon too -- can't wait!

Convent's Herbal Garden Part 3

I finished the third part, but of course I messed up so many times that I ran out of my kit floss (nothing new). Matt went with me to the Needleworks to get some more Caron Waterlilies. Ouch, expensive! But at least now I don't have to twiddle my thumbs while I wait on floss to come in.

The color's off in the photo -- the fabric is actually white.

I also bought some new knobs for my floor stand. I get corrosion from the constant movement of steel on brass. Am I the only one?
