North by Northwest

I got so anxious to get to the compass I "navigated" my way down there!

First Light

Here's about where I am with "Sailor's Knots." It is really a fun stitch. The shadows in this picture do not do the colors justice. You can see where I had to frog a little (two of the floss colors for the rocks were labeled incorrectly. I had to rely on the kit picture to fix it. Think I'll be staying with this project for a while.

Start-itis Attack!

Had a real bad case of start-itis the other night, and since I'm shopping in my stash these days, I dove head-first into my kit cabinet, and, lo and behold, came up with this beautiful nautical design:

In case you can't read the fine print, it's call "Sailor's Knots" and was put out by Needle Treasures. I've googled and ebayed it, and can't find any mention or picture of it, so it must be long OOP. I had, in fact, started it at a stitch-in at Creative Cottage many years ago, but, because it's very large, had a hard time holding the q-snap at the table. And, it's on ivory Aida, which I am sticking with. I actually think some designs stitch well on Aida. Do need to get rid of the pesky "color organizer" it came with, and wind or baggie-up the floss, though. Who knows, this could be my summer project...
