so i thought i had better post one..
I do not have much to show as i just worked on My CC model for 7 days so i can’t share my main stitching focus pic..
i can however share my My Hearts piece.. i had a grungy day on friday so i treated mself to a hearts binge, and stitched 4 hearts
I decided to look through all my old HDF colours , the discontinued ones as there had been a discussion on the HDF board about Rosebush.. and i thought…oooooo that would look nice on my sampler, so it will be a new and old combo sampler , as i found pretties such as caribbean splash , summer sky, rose blush, peach melba, creamsicle and various others…
and i have to admit this picture i am posting is not up to date anymore as a heart in yonder sky and half a heart in raspberry creme ( discontinued colour) accidentally got stitched last night when i decided to stop sttiching the model about 9.30 ..
so they wil appear in the next update pic
so top row is..
caries passionfruit (LE spool colour) Blueberry soup, the delicious Orb, Rosebush ( discontinued)
Caribbean Eve, Golden Nectarine, Summer Sky ( discontinued)
half kailslaw, half winterberried
the little bit of blue is the start of my yonder sky heart.. but then i moved it to the third row …
decided it would be happier next to the split colour heart
Orb is so pretty, i am waiting on a skein of it so i can stitch it on my black doodle cloth .. the piece i had was from a discontinued tag i bought from vikki ( every order i get 10 discontinued tags for 25 cents.. they willbe perfect for a mini spot sampler at some point)
Next in my rotation is two days of Serenity Sampler , then back to Lady in the Meadow .. iwill do these two until next friday witha brief stint on my hearts and black doodle cloths..
well that is the plan lol.. and we all know how much i suck at stitching plans
i also have a new stitching frame..
i wanted a little one i could travel with so i could stitch in the car and at mums.
I have another of my six hours each way trips to hobart next thursday and it would be so much easier to stitch if i had a lap frame.. so i got one of these with both the 8 inch and 10 inch hoops, it is nothing flash, but i just tested sitting on it etc and it seems like it will do the job i want it to.. My hand can not hold a frame or fabric for any length of time with out hurting like **** so this will do fine for the car.. The Stitching Post was out of stock ( and i wanted it for next week) so i did get mine from Sew and sew and once again i must marvel at their service i ordered it last monday and i had it delivered today ( monday) and that is from the UK and postage is not expensive.. ridiculously cheap given the speed.
one more thing.. Vikki dyed my girly pink silk .. here is the picture.. i am very happy with how it turned out..
the details are in the last post i did
vikki did a mass of dyeing over the weekend.. there are sublime new colours coming out…
