A new start
Here's my new start. It's the Wiehenburg mystery sal Suzanne which I am so enjoying!! I'm stitching it on 32 count natural belfast linen with dmc variegated 4210. I love that colour and still not getting bored with it. This is a free design which you can get from the yahoo group but you have to join it.
Thanks for all your comments on the cdc. I think I have to agree with the majority. I'm not game enough to just keep going in case it does actually turn out all right so I think I'll cut my losses now and unpick the beads and just do the same thread. I have seen some people make bookmarks with this design using just a part of the design. I think this would be an excellent way to experiment with it and use beads, metallics etc.. This is the second time I will have unpicked this as the first time was with a metallic that didnt look too good either.
I have just purchased some emery designs from Anita's Little stitches and some Threadworx threads and accessories packs. They should be fun to do.
Still waiting to hear from Stephanie to see if she has got my pif. Hmmmmm very anxiously waiting.
Have a good week. xx
Edited to add that I have heard from Stephanie and she has rec'd her pif and loves it so I'll do another blog post tomorrow.
