Hi everyone! Well, some very deep stash diving has been going on around here. It worked though and here's my new start ...... Infatuated by Sheepish Designs.
I’m stitching this on 32ct Belfast cream (guess who’s trying to be good at the moment and work her way through some of her fabric stash before adding more!) and I’m using the threads called for, a mix of WDW and DMC. I am going to be stepping out of the box though on my choice of colour for the house. In the chart it uses WDW Coleus which isn’t available anymore and which I don’t have in my thread stash. The alternative listed is DMC 3686/612. Well, if I’m honest those colours, and even the original WDW colour from the picture, don’t really grab me so I’m doing something that will be a challenge for someone like me who tends to follow instruction on thread choice to the letter - yes, I’m planning on going with something different! I’ve pulled a couple of overdyeds that may/may not suit and plan on leaving the house to last to give me a better overall idea of what I think will work best. Wish me luck!!! This will either go very smoothly or I’ll be tearing my hair out with indecision!!!!
Thank you to everyone for the lovely comments you left on my last post about my finished CHS Her Sampler. I love reading all the comments on any of my blog posts and really do appreciate that people take the time to leave them! So, thank you!
My Christmas ornament for May is finished but I didn’t get myself organised to take a picture when I was taking some of Infatuated so that will have to wait to next time. Meanwhile, hope all is well with you and yours and that lots of stitching is going on!
Until next time……
