So now the cake is gone (anyone make it or have plans to?), I have some stitching to share....
From the Blackbird Designs Joyeux Noel book
the Joyeux Noel reproduction sampler (my first finish dated 2010!)
stitched on 30 ct. Lucky Penny linen with the called for Gentle Arts, Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colours overdyed threads. I did sub DMC for the CC Petite Maison, as the skein I had just blended right into the fabric and couldn't be seen.
What a joy this one was....well, except for that four-sided stitch, could've lived without that as it took me FORever to do! But, it's a neat look for a change and it's over and done with, so I'll quit whining about it ;-)
Oh, and I did finally finish stitching that last stocking from the BBD 'Tis Halloween book, called Enchantment...
on this one I used DMC 3371 for the CC Blackbird and DMC 3856 for the CC Copper Penny. Come to think of it, I never used Blackbird for any of the other stockings either, but the DMC instead. It made me happy to use what I had on hand :-)
Thanks for stopping by! Hope y'all have a great week!
