Be Merry, 13

I stole some time away from my stitching for customers to stitch the "E" on Be Merry and a stripe or two of pattern-stitch on the fringe below.  I also tossed in some blue background.

The "E" is done in the slanted gobelin in red alternating with a single pink continental stitch.  I like the look and it was definitely a quick stitch.

On the health front, I have had reactions to two different antibiotics, so the last 3 weeks have been spent on a steroid high.  Thank goodness, things are looking up.  Though please don't mention diuretics to me in the next millennium!

And I am madly packing and shipping finished Christmas items to customers so they arrive well before the big day.  It's at times like this that I think of all the people who come in and comment "I want to work in a shop like this where I can sit and stitch all day".  Me, too!

  1. Finding a decorative stitch that fits in an odd-count area can be hard to do. Your "E" looks great! Please continue in the positive vein on the health count--we need you!
