How is everyone doing this wonderful friday nite? I hope all is well in your part of the world and that you will be able to get plenty of stitchie time this weekend.
I was shown this freebie on the HDF message board and it was a blast to stitch. I needed a new project bag for a shawl I'm crocheting and I thought this would look really sweet on the pocket. You can find the pattern here. I stitched it on 32ct. cream Jobelan using a HDF silk called Examplar Moon Called Sea. Isn't that a great name!!! It has shades of teal, olive green and gold in it and it's stunning!
Just for the record, everything that I used in this design I already had in my sewing room. :o)
I did go to Hobby Lobby this morning to purchase some floss. I received an email from Sweet Sue the other day and she was saying how she didn't like how DMC black covered her fabric. I don't like DMC black because it tends to get fuzzy and I just hate working with it. Well incase you didn't know, Hobby Lobby is now selling Sullivan's floss which is from Mexico. I purchased 3 skeins of their black and I want to try it out and see how it feels and covers. If you have used this floss, please post a comment and tell us how you felt about it. I'm sure there are some ladies out there as curious as I am.
For you that live here in the states, please have a safe and happy Labor Day on monday and for everyone else....don't work too hard. Until we talk again....
Blessings as always,
