Heart of America by Little House Needleworks
Recommended fibers and buttons
32 count French Vanilla Swirl by Silkweaver
I finished up Heart of America this morning. It's so cute! I made one change to the Old Glory block, it had the year of the start on it but since my year of start was the same as my completion year on the acorn block, I changed it.
I'll spend my weekend working on a couple of other WIPs, namely Gem Show and part 3 of the Papillon mystery. We are expecting up to 9 inches of snow today and tonight. It's been snowing steady since morning . It's pretty but I'm so sick and tired of snow. And all the old snow had almost melted away. The poor robins!
I'm going to be also stitching the Ink Circles mystery as soon as I receive my silk and linen. I picked out Hand Dyed Fibers from Vikki Clayton. I'm thinking of using Purely Primitive from Silkweaver but I have to buy a big cut of steal it from something else I have kitted up. Right now I'm thinking of stealing it. :-) Here is a picture of the silk on French Vanilla Swirl but I think it will look better on the slightly more grey Purely Primitive. I think it looks nice, a bit more muted that what I thought I first wanted but it all goes nicely together.
Have a great weekend
