Farm House finis

Farm House - design by Blackbird Designs

36 count Silkweavers Purely Primitive

recommended overdyed cotton floss
Another one bites the dust! I so wanted to work on something else (I'm really bored with this color palette) but I didn't have time last night to pull something else together. I should have just grabbed one of my many WIPS but I didn't think of that either until just now. :-)

Nice finish!!!! Although this is such a beautiful piece, I can see why you would like to switch to something else for a change. Coming back for it after a while is always refreshing~

It looks great, Margie! I've really been enjoying watching your progress with this piece.

You're using 36ct fabric, right? So how many strands are you using? Some of designs have blended colors (maybe even all of them do). I really want to stitch all of the installments on 1 piece of linen as you are, but I'd prefer to use 1 strand. Not sure what I'm going to do for those blended colors.

Margie, it does look wonderful, can't wait to see it finished, but sometimes you need to take a break, but think of the finished product ;D

I think you did a fabulous job! A change is always a good idea though; a little break and your enthusiasm will be renewed!

Love the pinks and purples in this. It's turned out beautifully! Grats on the "finish". How many more parts are there to this?

Gorgeous! Loving the way the whites of Snow Garden are looking on the Purely Prim. Did you use the floss as charted?

I hear you about a color change, though. That's one of the biggies keeping me away from this big boy! :D
