Lots of photos to share today!
Firstly my order from Sew and So arrived which included the thread I needed to finish off Chocolate Shoppe.
Also, I got my order from Univers Broderie, which contained the long awaited threads I need to start my SAL with Claire. I am using plain white Belfast linen for this, as the red threads will look stunning. Here’s a floss toss. We are starting the SAL on Thursday, so Lettres a mon Chat will replace my UFO slot in my rotation. I’ll stitch on my UFO’s on Fridays instead.
On Monday I carried on stitching on New World and it stitched up really really quickly. I have almost finished two pages of the chart (there are six in total but two of those are quite small pages compared to the rest.
This picture really shows off the colour of the fabric well.
Finally, if you aren’t bored already, I treated myself to a new chart from Sew and So. My Dad gave me some money for Christmas which I hadn’t spent yet and I saw this design from The Drawn Thread and couldn’t resist. It’s called Moonlight Garden. It has a LOT of speciality stitches so will be quite challenging to stitch! I have only stitched one other Drawn Thread design, An Open Heart, which I really enjoyed and the explanations of the speciality stitches seem very clear so I should be okay. I ordered the fabric and threads at the same time as the chart, the fabric is called Stoney Point from Wichelet and the threads are a mix of NPI/Northern Lights and Dinky Dyes.
I’m putting this one away until later in the year, but just wanted to buy everything before I spent the money on something else 🙂
I did actually get some stitching done during my lunch hour today. Inspired by a recent entry on Claire’s blog I dug out an old UFO” Too Pooped” which I think I will leave in work to occupy my lunch hours. I’ll take it home at the weekend and take a photo of it. I started this ages ago and it came as a kit, which included Aida. It’s a long time since I stitched on Aida, and it felt like holding a piece of cardboard compared to the linens I’ve been using recently 🙂
Time for me to leave the office now and make my way home! Tonight I’m going to stitch on Cirque des Carreaux.
Have a good evening!
