Good Monday morning ladies. Hope your week has started out nicely....mine has been so so.
I decided to start two new projects. The first one is a Little House Needleworks called Home Sweet Home. Ms. Williams recommended this being stitched on an off white linen but I decided to take someone's advice. Marly of Samplers and Santas mentioned on her blog about a color of linen called "Tin Roof". I had never heard of this so I looked at my LNS and she had some. I LOVE THIS COLOR!!! It is such a great color to make something look primitive. This design isn't what I would call primitive but on this linen it takes that look.
I'm stitching this with silks and it's coming along great. The next design is from Creative Needle Arts and it came in a kit with white aida and Finca cotton floss. I had never used this floss before but it's great to work with. It glides thru the fabric really well and doesn't fray. I'm not using the aida so I decided to do it on a purple hand dyed linen and I like how the colors are showing up.
White is so blah.......don't ya think?
We got to spend a nice quiet weekend at home and I got a lot of stitching in.
I can't believe that Little John will be a year old in two weeks. Time sure goes faster the older you get and I hate it. Here's our big boy sitting on his favorite place to watch tv..
