Hannah Beeby

No new stitching photos to show you today - I have been stitching but nothing I can show at the moment!! I have been busy selling on ebay - do you remember I cleared out my cupboards?  Now this gives me some cash to spend on ?? yes, you guessed, yet more stitching stash! I have decided to stitch the Hannah Beeby sampler in an SAL starting in March. The chart is on order but I have not yet decided what fabric or floss to use. I think the chart calls for 28ct fabric but I prefer to use a higher count - a 36 or 40.  I am thinking of Vicki Clayton silk threads maybe in a bluish/black or a greenish/black shade - any thoughts/suggestions here? I think the chart calls for 3 colors so I won't make my decision until the chart arrives from Canada as to whether I stitch it in one, two or three colors!  

I have joined the Biscornu Exchange on HOE and I am working on something here - no stitching yet - but ideas are whirling in my head. I like to do something different for my partner but the problem is I then take a liking to it and have to stitch it twice.  This happens at Christmas time with my tree ornaments too!

Thank you for all the positive comments on my scissor fob and other pieces I have posted. It's good to know someone out there is reading my blog!

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    I'm certainly reading your blog - and thank you for visiting mine! Blue-black sounds awfully pretty to me. What a lovely chart - have fun stitching it.

    That sampler is just gorgeous...can't wait to see what you decide!

    Love the humbug you stitched for the HoE. And your previous finishes--well they are just amazing!!!

    Hi, I just clicked through to your blog from someone else's :)

    I'm stitching Hannah on 36ct Flax with Vikki's darkest Mermaid Blue and I'm thrilled with my colour choice. It's very similar to GAST Black Crow. I'm only using one colour overall, rather than the 3 colours called for. I look forward to seeing your progress when you start it :)
