Danielle of I'll Be Perfect In My Next Life sent me a picture of her stitched and framed version of Sew in Love and has kindly agreed to let me post this here (thank you Danielle). It's stitched on 28ct Ice Cappuccino linen with DMC 4210 thread. Isn't this pretty?
Sew In Love is still available *here* or by clicking on the CHARTS button on the sidebar. The free charts Sew Red, Sew Blue and Sew Autumn are also still available with any purchase.
Last week Kirby went to her university's Summer Ball which was held on a boat - I hope all the guests were good sailors! Here she is with her escort for the evening, her boy-friend Charles. It's a shame I do not have a picture that shows the whole of her dress - the bottom half is a very pretty turquoise.
I know I am on a Stitch from Stash year but ... I have decided to stitch Jane Rees 1869, a Bristol Orphanage sampler as soon as I can gather together my chosen supplies. Although I have ordered some of my favourite 48ct French Gander linen and a selection of mini spools of the HDF new Perfect Red range (to choose which red I prefer), I am now contemplating stitching this on 55ct linen with Soie Surfine (109) which will mean it will measure 13 x 17½ when completed. The original measures 10 x 13½ being stitched on approximately 70ct linen but even I draw the line somewhere! I also need to buy the chart which I have delayed in ordering as I was unsure as to which of the available Bristol Orphanage samplers to choose. The decision has now been made and I am looking forward to making a start. Jane has a stitch count of 362 x 476 so it's not a quick project but I have a few more iStitch designs to break the monotony if, indeed, it becomes monotonous! Watch out for WIP.
Thanks for visiting and have a lovely weekend
