I was away from my sewing box for 2+ weeks, and I have to say, my first long stitching session was an absolute delight. After a couple of weeks of working pretty exclusively on Cranberry in Pines, I got a fair bit done on Pink Lemonade Cottage. I can’t say enough good things about this kit – top-notch materials and a pattern that is lovely, but is stitching up so well. Even the bright pink is growing on me! I need to put the initials on soon, so it’s time to decide who this set is going to … luckily, I don’t have to worry about the stocking: it’s got an owner (who checks in occasionally on my progress, but seems a little surprised at how long it’s taking!).
I get a fair amount of hits on the blog due to people searching for the Pink Lemonade kit – I’ll just put another plug in for it, it’s really lovely. I’m seriously considering adding two of the designer’s other kits to my collection – I’m having such a nice time with this one (and seriously – it is so nice to have a project arrive in one box, no other acquisitions required!).
I’ve made some progress on the Cranberry in Pines stocking, too – I’ve more or less finished the toe. The more I stitch on this, the more fun I’m having – it is really pretty & the subtle variations that can be such a pain (in terms of thread changes) really create a lovely impression.
I’m not sure my SO is quite as in love with it as I am, but this is partially a self-serving exercise, so that’s OK!
