It's Sew Easy

Sometimes when I'm doing other things, I think about my hobby. I mull over color combinations for fabrics and flosses. I knew I wanted to stitch up this newest piece, but the color combinations were endless. Right now I seem to be on a monochromatic kick with one strand of silk over two fabric threads. The fabrics of choice have been a lot of 32 count here lately, which is odd given that I was never a 32 count fan. I need to see in order to stitch and 32 count is a bit taxing on these middle aged eyes! :)

Well, at any rate, here is what I have so far. I love the color combination and this piece is really flying by!

Design: Sew Easy

Designer: Carol R of iStitch Designs

Fabric: Wichelt 32 count linen in Antique White

Fiber Used: Caron Collection Waterlilies silk in Cherry Cordial 

Well, I best be off. Have a lot of stuff to do before work. Hope everyone is having a great week! :)
