O Morning Star

O Morning Star
The Work Basket
28 Count Golden Sand
DMC Floss
 I have been slowly stitching on this design by The Workbasket.
The yellow was actually supposed to be a lighter color (DMC 677) but it didn't show up well enough on the Golden Sand. Suggested fabric was a little more orange (Lakeside Linen Silver Fir),.

I as going to try and dye some fabric but, decided to go with this piece I found in my stash. I haven't decided what colors I am going to use in finishing but will work at it tomorrow. I am anxious to see how it works out.

I am still stitching on my LHN ornaments. I don't have too much more to stitch on The Merry Skater. It is stitched on 32 count Tumbleweed by Wichelt Imports. I thought I liked it when I first started it but I found out it makes my eyes cross when I try to see the holes. I found that I can see it better in the sunny part of the day.
I missed it today because I took a nap. :-(

I spent most of the day trying to get my scanner to work. I don't know what happened to it but it has gave me a bad headache. I messed around and managed to get my printer to quit working too. My DS came and did a system restore
and now at least I have my printer and my photo imaging back. I have some freebies I want to print. I saw where Karen had stitched them and fell in love.

I really need to get the ball rolling and get some super fast stitching and finishing done.
Stay tuned and we will see what happens.

Very pretty finish Bonnie - I love the colors. This technology we rely on so heavily can really test our patience at times, can't it? I hope you get it all back up and running smoothly soon.

Very pretty Bonnie. Sorry to hear that you are having technical difficulties.

Karen said...

That's a cute finish! Napping???? You should be stitching...Christmas is coming! Happy stitching on your ornaments!

Hope you get the scanner working too...don't you just hate computer gadgets sometimes?

Leaving you this beautiful, very good color change.

What a bright and cheery design, Bonnie--I really like it...Good luck with finishing up your LHN ornaments, too!

I know just what you mean about needing good light to stitch. I can hardly stitch at night anymore, even with my Ott light! It's just too hard on these middle aged eyes :)

I like your morning star, it is so bright and colorful!

I have also problems with my scanner :( It is a veeeery old one, works, but so slow that I think twice before getting it unpacked. I should find a permanent place for it, so at least I wuld not need to unpack&pack every time I want to use it.
