A Little Start.....

Gentle Friends I made a start on a new piece over the weekend.  I actually made the start on Friday, but I didn't like the floss colours so I pulled out what I had done and went in search of colours I liked and would work on the linen I am using......


.....  It's called "Hibernation Day" by Heartstring Samplery..... a band sampler that I re-worked to eliminate the words and moved some of the bands, added a bit here and a bit there.... basically the chart was a jumping off place.  Now it's "Winter Band Sampler."  I started off using the recommended floss but they just were not working on this piece of 36ct "Truffle", so I went back to the floss rings and decided on alternate floss.

That about does it for today sports fans, short and sweet - thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Don't know what the colors were, but these are beautiful. I made TWO new starts over the weekend...crazy, but at least one was just an ornament!

Sounds like me, Edgar! I'll change something in a skinny second. I've switched up the verse in the piece in the Qs now. Your color choices look great on your linen.
