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...

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog and for your nice comments. I hope you will try making a dilly bag - I'd love to see it.
    Looks as though we have many favourite designers in common - I love your Prairie Schooler Village, and HOHRH is currently one of my long neglected WIPS.
    I've stitched Geranium Cottage too :)
    Love everything you are doing and this kit you are about to embark on is gorgeous. Anything to do with the ocean gets my vote.
