more specifically purple seaweed!! I started Purple Silk mermaid last week
the temptation to start at purple silk’s face was enormous, but i was very disciplined and started top left corner … which was not really a hardship as the purple seaweed background was one of the reasons i love the chart so much..
but purple seaweed is not fast to stitch lol..
anyway the specs on her are
1×1 on 32ct PR evenweave linen
next in line for a showing is my weekly pic of tranquillity sampler
getting close to the end now!! well it feels like it..
and bizarrely i am hoping she starts another mystery sampler.. i know i have like 4 waiting for when i finish this one and i want am hoping for another mystery one.. loopy = fudgey
Talking about samplers and starting i think i am close to a start on the serenity sampler.. i am just waiting to check the new release pinks against the luteous green silkseries, to make sure neither looks as good as the Rose quartz series does, and then find soem linen that the pinks and greens actually work with..
can you believe i have heaps of high count linen… 34 ct -50 ct and none is the right colour match for those silks… the creams are too dark , or i have 40 ct cornsilk, which is too yellow or patina which is the wrong pale green and light exampler ( all from lakeside) which is too dark and 34 ct cafe au lait from legacy which is too dark..
i have plain white 40 ct from legacy linen, but technically that is for tsunami sampler to go with Tranquillity yes i know it will be smaller i like that idea..
so … i am having one last search today through all my stash and if no devonshire cream 34 ct pops out and says nah nah anh i was hiding , i guess i will need to order some linen..
hmmm everytime i say right no more stash for a while something happens and i have to buy more…
In super cool news..
