i am still around, just not very chatty, as anyone waiting for emails can atest to!!
I have given up waiting for Paul to bring hom the camera so these are all scans, none of which are really true to colour except probably The Serenity Sampler and Butterfly Dream Fae is closeish, the Rainbow Band Sampler is nothing close in my opinion it is a lot clearer and intense IRL
First up i completed my Serenity Sampler
Designed By Martina Dey sttiched 1×1 on 35 ct using the Hdf conversion of the original DMC colours
I love how it turned out , but there are a few issues around it in relation to the model stitching side of things so i am fairly flat about it atm… 😦
There is a way better image here…. Serenity Sampler
Next up is my Rainbow Band Sampler ( see link in previous post for picture etc)
this is only half of each of the six bands
i wanted to makesure i was headed in the right direction with colours
band one is the frayed denim combo from the spools forum
band two is an isle green
band three is a tarts knickers
band four is one of the goldrushes
band five is a mystery nosegay combo
band six is Hibiscus..
anyone who has hibiscus will know how the colours are off as the hibiscus is a lot pinker than this
Nextis My New Haed Start It is Elaine Cox’s Butterfly Dream Fae
I have converted it to Silks and it looks so pretty IRL
1×1 on Passione Riccamo 30 ct
and finally an update on my needlepoint heart, see earlier post for all the details
a few random musings..
If the previews i have seen for nashville are anything to go by i am going to have a massive stash increase this year… not as massive as i would like with the AUD floating around 63 Cents against the USD , but still an increase .. lol
so far Sampler Cove, Needlemania, The Cats Whiskers and a new designer ( whom i know ) Nicole Dorset are the designing highlights for me , especially Sampler Cove , Diane has out done herself
And it is wonderful to see two new charts on Kerry’s Character Creations Website, and such lovely charts too, i especially love the dragon, what a cutie he is… ( her link is on my sidebar)
