Fourth of four

And yet another project that has been languishing in my project pile for well over a year.

Background – a long time ago – at least a couple of year before Russia decided to invade the Ukraine, I had purchased a kit of Barbara Ana’s 4 Seasons from NitkaMoscow.  As a bonus, there were four additional small charts that I could download from their site. Four seasons charted as two dogs and two cats. Each was about 1200 stitches – small, cute, and easily stitched which was why I promptly did the first two completely, the third without the minimal back stitch, and never started the fourth. Obvious, right?

This morning I decided that I really needed to go through my “holding” project bin for something that would be relatively quick and easy to stitch/finish. Three of four completed? PDF pattern to drop into PatternKeeper? How could I go wrong.

So here is the start on Winter Dog.

Stitched on 16 ct Aida more than likely with the called for DMC. Exception being I subbed in B5200 for white since the white didn’t show on this faint blue/gray fabric at all.

I have some quilts to finish this week – so it is now one to desk clearing time….

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
