Gentle friends, I've been working a bit on HEiotS...
... filled in the house part and the only real change was to use "Old Purple Paint" for the door instead of "Mulberry"... then I started up on my Spring piece... I began this stitch using a 40ct RR piece of linen... which I didn't like, it was far to stiff and the color was just off a bit so I frogged out the border that I had stitched and then dug around and found another piece of linen I liked far better.....
... a really lovely piece of 36ct Lakeside Linen, the color is "Vintage Sand Dune." I've restitched the border I frogged out of the other piece of linen and am a much happier stitcher with the way it looks. The piece I started is LHN "Little Sheep Virtues" and I am stitching it as a single large sampler. I have modified the border from the many colours and variations charted to a single color "Wilderness," and will be leaving the diamonds open - for now - I like the way it looks, but I just might change my mind....... the end is a long way off. I have also changed all of the colors from the recommended DMC floss to various overdyed floss' including WDW, CC, and GAST - I'll talk about them as I stitch along.
There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
