Here is my first part to the CCMonde SAL from the Thread Basket. I started it three times with all different colors- finally settled on this mystery brown 32 ct. It's over one, of course :)

Snow Garden

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.7

This is the first piece to BBD Anniversaries of the Heart completed. The first block is supposed to be the lightest, but I think it turned out well on the Sage fabric. I have decided to stitch them three across and five vertically instead of the original way BBD designed them. Next in line will be the first bonus chart.

Anniversaries of the Heart- Snow Garden

I recently asked Lauren of Sassy's Fabbys to dye some stark white 50 ct Kingston linen for me... originally I wanted to use it for the Vierlanden IFAKHS 1817 sampler. When it arrived in the color "Sage" I immediately knew it was too happy for such a dark piece. The color was gorgeous and needed to be used for something special. After a couple of starts on the corners, I finally went with Blackbird Designs Anniversaries of the Heart. This is the first part "Snow Garden" started. It is so tiny. Of course I took the liberty of changing all the colors to HDF. The first block is especially light compared to the rest, so I went with Ex Salty Sea and Ex Pussy Willow to darken it a bit. The peacock is Ex Flannel dark and is more purple IRL. This is going to be beautiful on the Sage Kingston!

Rebecca Cullen

I have picked up Rebecca Cullen again. She has been neglected for 5 years. At first I thought I no longer liked the colors. Now I have decided that I do, but I'm going to add a few of HDF premium for the embroidery. I am also going to frog the light green vine and make it premium OMotFOREST. It will be a pain, but I think it will look better. I sure wish Vikki still offered Cafe Latte. It is used in the leaves of the flower on the left and is so pretty!

Coat of Arms

Here is my most favorite WIP right now. I still don't have a computer, so I'm blogging by phone... hope this pic will post.
This is the Coat of Arms SAL by Martina Wiehenburg... there is a yahoo group devoted to it.
I am using HDF Examplar Fried Pickles with black spatter on Sassy's 45 ct Khaki Graziano linen.

Sun Bathing

This is Sun Bathing by Bizzi Creations. I started it Saturday- looks like a nice lazy kitty that will be perfect for the vet clinic where I work. I'm stitching on 40 ct Mediterranean using HDF. I think it's OOP now because I couldn't find a pic online- I took a pic of the cover so you can see what it will look like eventually.

My computer died!

Well, I haven't been able to post in forever because my computer bit the dust. I'm going to try to use my phone, this post is just a test. Here is a photo of ABC 1900 to test... I hope this works!
