Stitching for the Lottery


No Spring Ride tonight. Earlier in the day, I started my piece for the Cross Stitcher's Lottery, and I really was enjoying it... so, I stuck with it until all of the cross stitching was done. Here it is, Peacock Treat by Praiseworthy Stitches. I just knew I would really like this design stitched up, but now that I see it, I just love it! It will be hard to part with it, but I can stitch it up for myself sometime. The fabric and floss are more vibrant than my photo shows. I will just leave how I am going to finish it as a mystery for now ;-)

Sorry Karen, I couldn't resist choosing this over Spring Ride today!

Snow, ice, freezing rain, and bitterly cold temps... that's what we have!

It's beautiful! What a lovely design. I've not finished yet my piece for Lottery, but I think I'll soon have time for that :)

Just lovely Carol! I'm quite fond of this series.

No worries Carol. I'm averaging a broken 3 hours sleep a night at the moment with this little monster so there's way I can concentrate on stitching. I am so shattered :o(

Your PS design looks gorgeous :o)))

I have this one in my stash ... but honestly, that green has scared me off from starting it. Yours looks really lovely, though, and perhaps I'll take the plunge now. ;)

Most pretty Carol :)
I have all of these PS and the last one comes out in January...apparently they've not been too popular. I just got the news from Amy...Dec, they don't have one (which is too bad, I was invisioning birds with holly) but that's not to be....

Carol, you did a lovely job and it stitched up so quickly!

Susan said...

It's beautiful, Carol! You'll definitely have to stitch it again for yourself!

Peacock treat is awesome! I think I'd have a hard time parting with it as well. Beautiful colours!
