Anyway, before I go any further……I can report a finish! Yes, I put the last few stitches in Infatuated yesterday and what a lovely stitch this was.
Sheepish Designs Infatuated stitched on 32ct Belfast Cream linen & a mix of DMC & WDW threads
I did do some hair-tearing over deciding what colour the house would be. I think I tried about 5 different overdyeds and wasn’t happy with any of them. Then I had something of a light bulb moment and decided to go with the colours of the strawberry and the heart, DMC 3721 and 3722, but add in a lighter shade from the same colour family. Then I just randomly re-threaded my needle with a different shade each time I needed too and was much happier with the finished result than trying to find an overdyed that I thought worked.
Meanwhile, I’d a nice stash day yesterday when BBD’s Pink Hill Manor arrived. I’m on auto for this series but have, as yet, to start stitching on any of them. This one though has caught my eye and I think this will be my next start.
I’m planning on stitching it on 32ct puck Elne of Lynnyn that I have in my fabric stash. So, no stash diving for my next stitching project.
And, before I go, here’s my Christmas ornament for May - Homespun Elegance's Mr Candy Cane, stitched on 32ct lambswool linen using the suggested threads. Siobhan, Cari and I are still managing to keep on track with this!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Until next time…..
