I started my Serenity Sampler …
after all that planning i still made a change about 2 hours in.. yes that would be after 100 plus stitches 1×1 on 40 count… yes i am insane i THOUGHT you all knew that by now
so i went with The Luteous Green / Rose Quartz with a few of the darkest imperial green having been ordered as the darkest Luteous green is not as dark as it looks on the screen.. i will probably also add in a few patches of the black iris for colur depth as well..
what changed?? not that i hated stitching 1×1 on 40 ct, that was fine, i love the legacy Alba Maxima 40 ct linen it is awesome , it just looked too stark somehow… so i rumaged around like a crazy woman and found a piece of pale pink Belfast linen and made Apul pay attention to me for a few minutes and he agreed the pink was not bad, it actually complimented the silks , so i went with it… Is it ok?? or is the pink too much?
.. and even then i had to do a major frog as it really does seem my ability to count beyond four has left me lol..
i am having the first few pages enlarged today on the copier I( assuming paul remembers ) … the draw back of a bound booklet style chart is reading it, so i tried scanning the first page and it was a small disaster one of the symbols does not scan well… hence the frogging incident
the official specs are 1×1 on 32 ct using HDF regular silks
now back to Lady in the Meadow for the week
a chart caught my eye yesterday i sweet simple stitching themed one.. actually two did but i am having trouble getting a reasonable link for one
isn’t it cute.. if i had a reaosn to order some stuff i would order it.. like i have time to stitch it… NOT
and here is the other one that has made me smile in the last day or so .. so far i can only find her on the hoffmandis site and they do pop up pics ,so hopefully this will work
