I cleaned like a mad woman on Friday so I could relax and stitch on Saturday and Sunday. And that's exactly what I did! I worked on "The Riddle" all weekend. I was stitching along on the grassy area when I realized I didn't have a color that was needed! I double checked the thread list and sure enough it wasn't on it. The color needed was 341, I did have 342 in my stash, so I decided to try it out. I think it turned out ok. It's not as light as the picture, but I think it will be fine.
Even though I didn't have the right color, I had a lot of fun stitching the grass because it's all bargello. I love bargello. Have you all seen Coni's finished bargello canvas work piece? I would love to stitch something like that one day!
For those thinking of stitching this - there is a mistake on the left detail grass pattern - the bottom row is missing. That caused me to frog a couple times. I must have been tired because I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong! :)
Well, nothing else going on here. Just hanging out with the kids - watching Spongebob. :) Write soon!
