Just picked up the needle, with a little time to work on it a design I've had from a designer , and inspired with it, so another start for a cloudy afternoon. I'm using this with DMC 355, monochromatic.
The fabric has been in my stash for at least 10 years. I've always LOVED it. It has flecks of Colonial Blue and Red in it with a dark linen main color. It has a wool feel to it. I've always wanted to know the name of it, I had taken the tag off. I got this many years ago in a stitching shop in Augusta, Ga. that I don't think is there anymore.
I thought the red picks up the flecks of threads perfectly.
Can you guess what this sampler will be?????
Can you guess the designer?????
I like the "wooly" feel to this linen and I'm finally putting it to use. This is what happens when I clean out my stash. I find too many things to start on. :)
Last night, went to see The Lucky One out in theatre based on a Nicholas Spark's book and it was very good!
More later with pics of Miss Abbie when my camera is behaving. :P
