March Update!

Here's the latest on my Prairie Schooler progress: Letter X turned out just adorable and was stitched as charted--any differences are my mistakes ! lol






Letter U got some changes and became Umbrella instead of Unlock. What do you think? I thought the existing picture was very cute and required only a small amount of "tinkering" to use it for the new theme. And I left the little key under the letter.

Here is the entire project so far. As you can see the letter V also got started, but stalled because I felt the dog "overshadowed" the vineyard theme. Am I missing something here? Maybe the dog's breed starts with a V? I would rather have the dog in the background and the vineyard/house in the foreground.

Next month I am moving on to S and T and will revisit V in the coming months.

*On another topic, I finally got up the courage to start a blog of my own--atwillowtreepond Feel free to check it out and leave me some comment feedback. I am still struggling with the layout--this post is a perfect example!

It's a Vixen (fox) not a dog. Nice job.

Brenda said...

Wow! You have a lot done and it looks great. I love the "X" block and I really like "U" for umbrella.

Teresa S. said...

Well, duh! A vixen--yes, I was definitely missing something :) Thanks again, Katherine, for pointing me in the right direction!

They look great, and I love your alterations!

I think someone has already mentioned the dog is in fact a Vixen ... and I'm wondering if it's all related Aesop's Fable of the Fox and the Grapes, but that doesn't put the fox in a good light...

Looks great!
I was wondering, what is the brand of frame you're working on? Where could I purchase one? Did you get it at your local stitching shop?
Also, what type of stitching group are you in that you went on a retreat? (saw on your blog) Just wondering (as if I need to go out and find a stitching group! Busy enough as it is!!) Thanks! Melissa
