Christmas Cabin update

Got a fair amount of stitching time in yesterday, which makes me happy. The piece is very easy to stitch and I can go at a relaxed pace and yet it's going quite quickly. Which means I will have this done long before Christmas, LOL! :)

I am stitching the cabin from the third sampler from Prairie Schooler's Christmas Samplers II leaflet, which you can see here:

Sorry to say that when I am finished, the leaflet will NOT be for sale or trade. I plan on stitching this at least twice more, and I am plotting out a possible third way.

I've converted the DMC into Soie D'Alger threads and it's really popping on the fabric. Here is the conversion I am using. (It is my own conversion and YMMV should you use it. :) )

DMC (Soie D'Alger)

White (Blanc)
420 (2246)
422 (2242)
611 (4534)
918 (942)
924 (1716)
935 (1836)
3022 (2756)
3371 (4126)

The dark forest green is really popping on the fabric and I am really, really enjoying stitching with so much silk!

At any rate, here is my update. I am hoping to get some more done before I go into work today:

Design: Christmas Samplers II (Book No. 73)

Designer: The Prairie Schooler

Fabric: 28 count linen/silk blend in Natural by Wichelt

Fibers: Access Commodities Soie d'Alger

Well, I best be off. Today is my Monday and I have some stuff I need to do before I get my work week started. Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! :)
