Hi everyone! Well, not as much stitching time as I would have liked this week. I did manage to thread a needle every day, just didn't get to thread it as many times as I would have liked! More stitching done on CHS Hearts & flowers and this is where I am with it.The picture shows the fabric much lighter than it really is. It’s Lakeside Examplar and is a lovely warm tone that works really well with the thread colours. I’d love to have this as a finish in February so that’s what I’m going to be concentrating on this next week I think.
Last weekend I worked on my February ornament, BBD Merry Christmas Stocking and finished it.
I’ve used the suggested CC colours one of which is Clay Pot for the stitching under the year at the toe of the stocking. I'm not sure how clear it is but can you see that the picture on the chart is more a slightly lighter red and not pink as such, or at least not pink in the way my skein of Clay Pot is! I have to admit that every time I look at my stitched piece the pink catches my eye, but not in a good way! I’m considering re-stitching that little bit in one of the other colours before deciding if the Clay Pot is what I want to use. Has anyone else stitched this stocking yet? If so, is their skein of Clay Pot more of a red than a pink?
And finally, here is my totally finished January ornament, a PS one from A Christmas Visit. I know many of you use Deb at Artistic Needle and this is the first time I’ve sent something to her. It won’t be the last! I love what she’s done, I’m so thrilled with this, never in a million years could I have finished this so well!
From PS booklet A Christmas VisitWell, that’s it from me for this time. I hope everyone has a good weekend whatever they’ve got planned. I don’t have too much planned so hopefully I can fit in lots of stitching time!
Until next time ….
