Got to go to Stitcher's Paradise yesterday for the Wednesday stitch in and had a marvelous time catching up with the ladies over the post Thanksgiving holidays. DH had also told me that prior to leaving for the stitch-in, I could take some of our extra cash and get some supplies! Wahoo!! I picked up floss and fabric for my Bleu de Chine Noel heart that DH purchased for me last year, plus I picked up the Joyeux Noel book from Blackbird Designs, plus the fabric and floss for one of the designs inside the book. Woohoo!! I couldn't decide which one to stitch, so I started both, LOL! :)

Here is what I have so far:

Design: Noel

Designer: Bleu de Chine

Fabric: Zweigart 28 count Cashel in Opalescent Raw

Fibers: Access Commodities Soie d'Alger in Blanc, 542, 942, 1836, 1842, 1844, and 2926. Kreinik #4 braid in 002 Gold.

Close up:

It's a bit of a bummer that the sparkly bits are picked up very well in the pictures, but what are ya gonna do?

Here is the Blackbird Designs piece:

Design: Merry Christmas from the Joyeux Noël design book

Designer: Blackbird Designs

Fabric: R& R Reproductions 30 count overdyed linen in Witches' Teeth

Fibers: Crescent Colours cotton flosses in Antique Lace, Clay Pot, Four Leaf Clover, Spinach, and Wild Berries

The stitching is sort of all over the place, as I wanted to see if the colors truly looked good together with the fabric I chose. After this happened, I am finding myself second guessing myself and I never used to do that. I will get over this eventually, and hopefully soon, as I consider myself fearless in color changes and even the changing of the design itself! :P

At any rate, I need to get some stitching time in before work. Time's a-wastin'!


Respectfully submitted,
