It's Been A While

Howdy, y'all! It's been a while since I last posted. Life has just gotten in the way and I am not stitching as much as I have been, but these things happen, yea?

At any rate, I finally have gotten to where I feel like stitching, so I decided to start something new. Yes, I know, you're going to have a heart attack from that surprise. But nothing was really calling me and this one I have seen stitched in a variety of ways so far, and when I saw the design, this color combination immediately came to mind.

Enough of my blathering, let's get on with the show! :)

Designer: Lizzie Kate

Fabric: 28 count evenweave fabric by Dyeing 4 U in Moonlight (Discontinued color and manufacturer).


The Snoopy bag was purchased last night at Barnes and Noble. I thought it would be a cute bag to keep my Halloween projects in. :)

While I love the colors in the floss, I am disappointed in how un-silk like they actually feel. My apologies to the HDF fans out there in blog land, however, compared to my Caron Waterlilies and Au Ver A Soie and the Belle Soie silks, the HDF's do not feel as silky as the rest of them. It could just be me :). I've also had some issues with knotting and fraying a bit, but it's not as bad as metallics! :)

Well, I best be off. I think DH wants to go to the movies or go do something today. Hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend! :)


Respectfully submitted,

I was just thinking about you the other day. Glad you are doing well. Great start. Sorry you are unhappy with your floss. I am too frugal to use silk. ;)

Love the bag, I was at B&N today and they were just putting out Halloween goodies.
