I really wanted to stitch one of the hearts from the Isa Vautier book that I received from Claire for Christmas, so I decided to kit one up and take it into work so that on those days where the weather is too bad to go out at lunchtime I would have something to do other than spend even more time starting at a computer screen. As we’ve been having such bad weather here lately I don’t think it should take long to finish LOL.
The heart I have chosen is called L’Automne and here is last weeks progress. I plan on bringing it home every weekend to take an update pic.
Talking of new starts, I am looking forward to starting a Bramble and the Rose SAL with Sheila, Claire and other stitchers on March 1st. If you feel like joining us pop along to the Ink Circles Stitchers blog for a look. There’s been quite a lot of interest already!
I’ve chosen my threads and have decided to use a Threadworx colour called Deep Blue Sea. I’m still waiting for my threads to arrive, but I did find in my stash a skein of the Needle Necessities equivalent, and also Sheila picked up a skein at Nimble Thimble last week so I should have plenty of extra thread, just in case LOL. I’ll be using white fabric, either Belfast or Cashel linen.
I’m not sure what’s going wrong with my photos today, but the most lifelike colour is the bottom left photograph, a very very deep blue. I am still thinking about whether to pick out certain aspects of the chart (the Roses) in a dark raspberry colour to give it a little bit of interest, but will probably decide that once the stitching has begun.
