I'm spending New Year's Eve as I have for the last several years: stitching and watching the Twilight Zone marathon on the Sy-Fy channel. I started Red House Sampler last night while watching two of my favorite new year's eve movies: The Posideon Adventure and When Harry Met Sally (caught them both after they had started so not 4 hours of stitching here...just a disclaimer) Here is the progress I made:
I used my new sewing machine to stitch an overcast stitch on the edges of the linen. Nice!
LNS didn't have the fabric I wanted for RHS so I chose 32 ct Lambs Wool. I think it will be fine.
I have been stitching on it all morning and will post progress pics later this evening. We're spending NYE at home as usual and I'll be making my family's favorite party appetizers for dinner. Til then, I'll leave you with some pics from Christmastime at Colonial Williamburg. Have a great day!
Edited to add photo of today's stitching progress. Doesn't look like much but I stitched pretty steady today working in meals and playtime with the grandbaby. I've put my last stitch in for 2009. Happy New Year!
