Valentina and Randjes for the Win
I really enjoyed stitching this Ink Circles design called Valentina. I stitched it on 14-count Easy Count pre-gridded Aida fabric with Artiste floss #122424. I am not taking the grids out until I am positive that I didn't miss any stitches. I plan to applique the project on a denim tote bag for a gift.
Now that I am done with Valentina, I am returning to my Randje project. I haven't stitched on it for a few weeks so I am way behind. I am not going to worry about catching up, but I am going to see how far I get today. I may work on it for a few days, but if I get bored with it, I may decided to alternate between it and some of my other projects. I have two more projects to work on and I will have worked through my complete rotation of projects. I know it has been 4 months since I started on the rotation, but I have done a lot of side projects along the way. Hopefully I can make my next pass through the rotation more quickly.
I have been posting a lot of freebies over on Pinterest - mostly designs I shared on About.com. I will add more from other sites as I go along too. Anyway, I am posting the charts from About.com because they changed how they handle images and you can no longer save the charts (that are not in pdf format) directly from the site. So to work around this, you can save the charts from Pinterest and then follow the link to the About.com site for the pattern key and instructions. It is important that you visit About.com for the info because I still get credit for clicks to my content on the site.
