Recommended linen and silk fibers
As predicted yesterday, I finished Dresser Drawer Hearts on the way home from work last evening. In fact it was so quick I spent most of the ride home with nothing to work on. :-) I'm usually prepared with a backup project but I didn't know I had so little left when I left home for the train yesterday morning.
Trying at some artsy shots. :-)
Here is my new start - recognize it? What, there is not enough stitched yet?? :-) It's the start of Frederika by Carriage House Samplings. I'm stitching mine on 36 count Antique Gold from Silkweavers using the recommended NPI silks. I'm toying with the notion of stitching both Frederika and Fredrick on the same piece of linen. I didn't cut my fat half apart so I have until I need to start Fredrick to decide. I think that would be cool. And you know what a fan I am of stitching multiple designs on one piece of fabric.
I'm a bit sad that Kathy is not going to be designing anymore. But then I think I'll have less stuff to tempt me and I might be able to get thought my CHS stash. I'm not sure if I'm going to purchase any more. I have plenty to do and someone else will come along in short order and replace her I'm sure and I'll want those instead. :-)
