My oldest son picked our chart of the week this week; Panda Pals by Brittercup Designs. Not sure at what point panda bears turned into his spirit animal, but he loves the big fluffy creatures so I wasn’t at all surprised when he chose this design.
The model was stitched on 32 Ct. Summer Sky hand dyed Jobelan with The Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Avacado, Tarnished Gold, Slate, Flax, Shutter Green, Tea Rose, and Raven, along with Steel Grey Kreinik #4 Braid (010HL). DMC alternates are given as 471, 830, 415, 422, 469, 3688, 310. Stitch Count on design is 159w x 76h
Shaunterria used a really interesting finishing technique with her snowflake finish; she used some iron-on vinyl on the back and cut it out so it is flat. Interesting option for those who don’t want to do sewing and stuffing of all their ornaments this year
I’m always learning new things and getting new inspiration from our stitching community ~ I truly appreciate all the emails and photos that everyone shares with us here.
Thank you all. Happy Stitching!
A few people have asked why the blog hops stopped. Honestly, just life getting in the way. We’ve been so busy with work, school, soccer, so on and etcetera….
Once soccer season and school are over the blog hopping will get back to normal. I expect our next hop to be June 15th. In the meantime enjoy these photos I managed to snap of the kids (getting them to hold still long enough for a photo is seriously hard!) …
Lucas received some cool new golf stuff for his 15th birthday over the weekend (new golf bag and a new hybrid #3 club)
