A Game of Thrones

Teh Hubmeister and I have found a new series obsession. We have been watching Game of Thrones and love every minute of it. It's a medieval soap opera! While we've been watching it, I started a new project and finished another one up tonight. I have decided that after I finish my new start, we should be on Season Three by then, so I will get out Mary, Queen of Scots. I think it would be appropriate to stitch two projects related to two Queens who  fought one another over thrones while watching a show that speaks on that very subject. 


At any rate, here is the new start:


Design: The Queen's Crowns (A tribute to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth I)


Designer: Paulette Stewart for Plum Street Samplers


Fabric: 40 count Newcastle linen in French Vanilla by R and R Reproductions


Fiber Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Tulip


Stitcher's Notes: First time stitching on 40 count Newcastle linen. Stitching with one strand of Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Tulip over two fabric threads. 







The second project is one that I finished up tonight. The Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Strawberry Shortcake came in today and it took less than half an hour to get the rest of the border finished up. 



Design: Frappuccino


Designer: Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks


Fabric: 14 count aida in Beige


Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Beanstalk, Carnation, Cinnamon Stick, Old Crow, Strawberry Shortcake, Teddy Bear, and Vanilla Pudding








Well, I best be off. Need to pick up some more and possibly watch some more  Game of Thrones. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)
