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!
