Presenting Ms Pink Mushroom

In all her orange and beaded glory. Turned out she was well more than 8000 stitches which is about 3k over the average for the Nora Corbett series. She is also quite a bit bigger than the pixie series as well. She wasn’t hard, just frankly boring for a significant length of time. But done!

Stitched on Vintage Smoky White from Zweigart with the called for DMC and Mill Hill Beads. Backstitching wasn’t 3371 – I used a lighter chocolate silk which I have lots of left over from Treasure Island.  Started 18 June 2024 & finished 22 June 2024. Obviously it was the only project on which I was working.

Since I am caught up on all the SALs – I have four choices – 324, IAT (oops, No Time Like the Present) start something new, or pull out Broadway (Left over).

which is on 18 ct Rustic Aida with 3371 & 3750. I added another 320 stitches last night and will see if I can get down to the bottom of the clock so that I can roll the fabric on the scroll rods by the end of today…

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!
