Threads - DMC, Silk Gloriana, WDW,Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe,
& Chameleon from The Cherry Tree, South Africa
Hello to you my blogging friends and to my new friends. I am all better now. Cold/flu is ALL GONE:) Finally. Thank you all for your well wishes. It worked:) I have lots to share. I've been stitching every day. I started Ellen Chester's Bunnies in the Garden - With My Needle. I want to have it all done before Easter- Spring. I want to enjoy it while all the flowers are in bloom. When I started this I pulled all the DMC threads first. then I switched them out for Hand dyed threads & a silk that I had in my stash. The chart gives a listing of Olde Willow Stitchery overdyed threads but they are no longer available. Thank goodness Ellen listed DMC colors next to each one. So this is my latest wip.
I had my cell phone on me and clicked away.
Since I am stitching this wonderful chart I thought I would share him with you - Appropriate yes?
Needle page for inside the needleroll. I have to cut this out - YIKES!!!
Don't worry I will READ Ellen's instructions FIRST and MANY times before I do.
Hetti's SAL Delft Blue Tiles
28ct Irish LinenI stitched 6 more tiles for Hetti's Delft Blue Tiles SAL 2012. You can look for her free charts here.
When you go to her website or blog - the SAL is listed on the right hand side. She listed all the charts together in one place. I chose some different colors to stitch her SAL in. And I love how its coming out.
The Han Phoenix
28ct White/Silver Evenweave - Fabric Flair
ALL stitched in Silk threads:)
Oh My Goodness! I can't tell you how much I enjoyed stitching this chart. Monica Ferris "Thai Die" book at the very end has this chart. This is a represention of the bird found on a very old silk over 2000yrs old. If you want to learn more you need to read this book. I did stitch this with all her suggested threads of silks. You know, I took this photo when the sun was shinning very bright. It still looks shaded. Its really beautiful in person. I bought all my supplies at Needle in a Haystack for this project. They have silk threads that I never knew existed. Great selection. When I complete this stitched piece I will share with you.
On Chris's blog she posted about a incredible catalog, a sampler exhibit in Saco Maine, that she had received in the mail. So after reading her post - I ordered it:))))) Thank you Chris!!! Then on Ellen Chester's blog she wrote a post and listed a video to watch. YOU MUST VIEW THE VIDEO - if you love samplers. Its really well done.
With Love and Appreciation - Annette
