I am so proud to say I have finished the model I've been stitching for Nicole at Northern Expressions Needlework. It's part of a series of charts in "Shades" of colours. I stitched Shades of Orange.
It's stitched over 2 on 40 count linen. This was a first for me stitching on linen and stitching on 40 count. I did learn that stitching in daylight was best when stitching on such a small count. I have loved every stitch of this project and am now sending it on it's way back to Nicole.
I mentioned in my previous blog post that I had received some gorgeous new threads from the Silk Mill. Mrs Milkybar Kid asked in the comments if they were for a particular project.
The ones in the photo below I am going to use to stitch Peacock from Alessandra Adelaide. I have used the Silk Mill conversion to convert the DMC colours charted.
The other pack I bought is a themed set from the Silk Mill called Wordsworth Country. I have no idea yet what I am going to stitch with this but I just love the muted tones of this set and had to have it.
So two updates in one day! Not sure I can keep that pace up.
Keep stitching and smiling
