Began another project yesterday and I am really enjoying it. It's another iStitch and I seem to be on not only an iStitch kick, but a monochrome design one at that. I need to get back to stitching things that I've already started, but I just can't seem to get there. Ah, well. Such is life, eh? :)

At any rate, here is what I have so far:

Design: Sew Quaker

Designer: Carol R of iStitch Designs

Fabric: 28 count linen in Legacy by Picture This Plus

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Old Crow

I think that the Legacy by Picture This Plus fabric and the Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Old Crow combination is one of my absolute favorites. To me, it looks like it's been genteelly aged, rather than a primitive aged, if that makes any sense :). I am toying with the idea of stitching one of the swans in white, along with my initials in white. It's just an idea as of right now, but it is something I am contemplating with the piece. :)

Well, I best be off. Got tons to do before work tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great week! :)


Respectfully submitted,

Nice start and colors you are using. I like monochromes because you can thread a ton of needles and have them ready at the ready. Plus you already know what color each X is going to be so no floss changes.
