Something borrowed, something blue?

Before I get too much stitched of the latest iStitch design I though I would give out a sneak peek! The linen is 48ct blanc cassé Gander linen and the thread is HDF Magpie Tears 2349 left over from my Emblem of Love RR. Although I like all shades of blue this is one of my favourites and reminds me of washed out Levi's.

I have had to turn on the comments moderator as I was being left spam (in Chinese). What was actually written was ok but following each of the comments was a dotted line which in turn linked to a porn site!

Still no sign of my 55ct linen from Tissage Gander but my dear friend Valie called them on Thursday to be told it would be despatched today. She also doubled up my order at my request so I will have plenty in my stash for future use. And in the meantime, after deciding to stitch Jane Rees, I ordered Gigi's Jeanne Ries chart so I now have to decide which one of these to stitch. Why do I do this to myself?

It's another hot and sunny day here today and if it continues until the end of Summer I will be one happy lady.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    I get the chinese spammers too. They are sooo stupid they don't even realise their comments are getting moderated. I get several a week. Idiots. That is why I had to moderate my comments too. Love the new design. I'm really into blue at the moment.

    Carol I really admire you for being able to stitch on such high count linen. I think I would go blind if I tried. That is a gorgeous shade of blue.

    Love the sneak peek Carol! Nice of Valie to call about your linen. I still think you should go with Jane Rees first!

    Love the sneak peek Carol and the blue. I've made a little start on Sew Blue which I'm thoroughly enjoying! Hope to put a few more stitching in this evening. :o)

    I had that happen once, as well, but not recently.

    I don't know how you'll choose--all are so lovely!

    I have added comment moderation to any post over 14 days old because of the spam as well. I haven't had a problem now for quite some time.

    I love the blue you are using, I loved it when I was stitching with it on the RR.

    A nice start, I hope to see more of it soon.
