I sat down Sunday afternoon and stitched a third Texas Christmas ornament. It called for stitches for the Christmas lights, but I substituted beads. I think the beads look more like lights.
After I finished it, I started a BAP. Remember the colorful pattern that I liked here? Well I just couldn't stand it and had to start it. I'm stitching it on 16 count Aida. The pattern called for light blue Aida. I was going to use the white Aida that I already had until I realized that the pattern uses a lot of white floss. Stitching with white floss on white fabric makes me go blind, so I spent some bucks on 16 count "Sea Spray" Aida from Wichelt.
So far, it is fun. Just as I thought, the pattern is mostly big blocks of color with very little confetti stitching. Which is good as confetti stitching makes me crazier than stitching white on white.
