Hi there! How is your summer stitching going? I did pick up one of my WIPs over the weekend while watching the World Cup finale. Hooray for Germany! :-)
... and here is where it is now! I really wasn't diggin' the pale peach color as it seemed to disappear right into the fabric. So I unpicked it all, and also that medium green color since for the life of me I could not remember what color I substituted it for and it was no longer in my bag..... it must have gravitated to another WIP! So I found a wonderful skein of floss in my stash that I had gotten from Victorian Motto. All shades of peaches so I decided to use it instead to brighten things UP!!
Perhaps a little too far to the bright spectrum?? Not sure yet, it definitely looks happier! What do you all think?? Since the main body of the this sampler is all done in black I think this POP! of color might suit it fine.
I have to say too that Nancy's dyed floss is a real dream to work with, so much better than others I have tried! Love it!
I also wanted to share a super sweet surprise that I got in the mail this week... a gorgeous emery berry from Nicola. Thank you so much Nicola! I love it! These berries are made by Cyndi Foore and you can find all her beautiful berries at her fb page.... Strawberry Fields Needlework. The finishing is exquisite!
Hope you are all having some summertime fun! Here are some pretty yellow daylilies that have been blooming here....
Happy Summer and Happy Stitching!! xxx
