Artful Thursday ~ Week 18

Another week here, and I have a small little something to show for this week's Artful Thursday. I never did finish any of the other things I was working on last week, they are still awaiting their finishing touches.

This week, I was bitten by the needlework bug. I just had to sit down and play with my thread and needles. I actually started two projects this week, but only one made it all the way to the end. Hopefully, I will get to the other one soon.

I am still in the yellow and green mood. And I recalled a cross stitch pattern in my stash that was in these colors.

After a bit of thought, I decided to make a "few" changes to the original design...

When I showed Charlie, he laughed and said "Yeah, that sounds like you!"

I chose to add my initials in place of the two birds in the original. And I played around with the colors, using a little of this and a little of that. It is stitched on a piece of hand-dyed Aida cloth.

I have a few fun ideas running through my head of how to frame this. I think that might be a whole other post!! But this was really fun to do and it was nice to have something finished.
