A Little Erase And Rewind

Yes, I said it's fine before
I don't think so no more
I said it's fine before
I've changed my mind
I take it back

Went digging in the  Bin O'Shame  for something new to stitch and came across this oldie but goodie. I have no idea of when this was originally purchased. I am thinking it *might* have been around 2006, but I am not sure. A search of my hard copy logs has produced no answers, so that is what I am going with :). I have decided that this one is a re-do and not a finish from the  Bin O'Shame  as I decided to change fabrics. IMO, this is a fresh start and mayhap one day i will finish the original, the colors are much more suited the the fabric choice that I made. 

Without further ado, here is the latest in the Q-Snaps:

Design: Black and White Tulip (kit #34940)

Designer: Marjolein Bastin for Lanarte

Fibers: As provided in the kit

Fabric: 28 count Cashel linen in Legacy by Picture This Plus

Stitcher's Notes: Converted floss to DMC equivalents as there will not be enough to complete this re-do. This is the smaller of the two Black and White Tulips kits. When finished, I will not be selling or trading the chart.

Rewind as of Monday, April 27, 2015:

I was lucky enough to find a conversion for the larger kit, No. 34830. I am seriously contemplating stitching that on a 36 count Edinburgh linen in the same Legacy by Picture This Plus,  only converting the  DMC Six Strand Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in the called for colors to my beloved  Access Commodities Soie d'Alger . That project is a ways away, so I will cross that stitch when I get to it! :)

Well, I had best be off. Time's a-wastin'! Hope everyone has a fantastic week! :)
