IHSW : Monday - A Different Shade of Orange

Another weekend in the history books. Did I do as much stitching as I wanted? No, nothing new there. Still there is some progress to report.

I got out the Retro Cat picture again and made a little progress on the chair.

With a little luck (or effort) I’ll get more done soon.

For my birthday I received a copy of World of Cross Stitching #193. I was attracted to the lilies on the cover by Leslie Teare and the picture of the coast line by Ursula Michael. But I really hit the stitching jackpot when I saw the design library for the month! It was done by Lucie Heaton and called Paradise Found. There are 40 designs and I want to do nearly all of them! So the first one I decided to start was what I’m calling a sunset oval with all these nifty shades of (wait for it J) orange!

I might end up thinking I should have done one of the blue ones in the set first. But I can always do a Christmas picture for variety.

Happy Stitching World!


  1. Hi, I hope you had a great birthday! Orange is a brilliant colour and I am wishing I was watching the sunset whilst lounging on a beach somewhere :)

  2. Great progress, I love that orange!

  3. Oooh, so much orange! Retro cat is looking very neat, though.

  4. Ooooooh, love the happy colors. :D
