Well, my ambitious stitchy start to 2012 was a flop. I did finish up Winter Wonderland by LHN. Success.
Then on to my first new start of the New Year.... Well I read the chart, measured my linen, and cut it to the size on the back of the chart... Much to my dismay, I should have double checked the stitch dimensions and not just looked at the cut fabric size. There is a misprint on the cut fabric size on my chart... only off by at least 5" in the vertical measurement.... So, my nice big beautiful piece of linen is cut too small for the piece now.
I was so mad at myself. I haven't had the heart to look at any stitching since then. I will have to go to my nearest needlework shop and re purchase a hunk of linen for Shores of Hawks Run Hollow, and start again. The original piece of linen that I cut too small for it, was purchased at the shop in Galena, when it was going out of business, and the shop owner sold me a larger piece than what I needed...so that is why I was cutting it down to size....
Well, I guess I will just find other uses for my cutting mistake.
Onto other business... Thanks to all of you sharp eyed stitchers out there, the source of the Snowman freebie has been found. For those of you that are interested in obtaining the chart, see the comments from my last post that Carol made. She has kindly posted the address for you to find the snowman freebie.
So, thanks Carol for finding the link for the chart for everyone.
Well, I guess I will let you know when I gather my stitching mojo to move ahead.
Hope your stitchy start to 2012 was better than mine.
