Gentle Friends thanks for stopping by and for the great comments on Monday's post!! Sorry to miss a post yesterday but I was catching up on emails and they just took a bit more time to answer than I had expected.
This morning I wanted to show the two most recent things (excluding my exchange piece) that I have been stitching on.... first up has to be ATS... still working on the different bits in the sixth section....
If you look closely you can see the I have run a single thread along the sides so that I can make sure I stay within the narrow confines of the stitch. For some reason it has worried me, so to put my mind at rest I got some orange thread and just put them in. I'll pull them out later.
The other piece is the last Cottage on the year long SAL - I got my December chart a few days ago and thought about any changes I wanted to make. The only Major change was to switch "Swiss Chocolate" for "Brandied Pears"... and why you may ask did I do that... basically I had no "Swiss Chocolate" floss in my stash - and BP is very close to the DMC conversion so I just went with it. I was also going to change "Spinach" for "English Ivy" but after stitching some with EI I found that floss to be just too dark so I frogged it out and went back to the recommended "Spinach".... here is the little bit I have done...
I love the "Ribbon Red" and will probable stick to the hand full of DMC "browns" - This last part should be finished up in a day or two.
That's about it for today. I'll not be posting tomorrow as I am taking a 1/2 day - but I'll be back on Monday. Thanks again for stopping by and for your comments!! Do stop again!
