“Heartstings Drum Nutcracker” -- January 24, 2009

I started working on “Drummer” over the Holidays but I haven’t gotten very far.

Pat Thode of Heartstrings includes stitch suggestions with all of her designs and I enjoy using her ideas. For the Drum Nutcracker she suggests stitching large and small Thodes stitches in the black border using black Kreinink metallic. The rest of the black border will be stitched in Basketweave using black Impressions.

This is working up very well but I need to stitch it during the day with daylight and with a red piece of fabric underneath. Unfortunately, we have not had too many sunny days when I was home and I had time to stitch here in Windy Meadow!

So glad that you could stop by today!

Having fun watching for your pictures. This piece should work up quickly. Love your picture of the Snowy Meadow!
