WIP Update And A Shout Out

Firstly, I would love to give a shout out to Joanne, of 123 Stitch. I had let her know about the stitch count being VERY off  on Sea Flora a while back on the 10th of this month. She wrote back saying that although I did not purchase the fabric from her, she wanted to send me the entire fat quarter gratis in order to make up for it. At first I was hesitant, as this would mean should would be out of a $17.00 sale. She asked again and this time I figured she meant it, so I took her up on her very generous offer. The  28 count Caribbean Blue jobelan by Wichelt Imports showed up in the mail Wednesday, and I am so very, very happy about that. I thanked her profusely for her generosity and kindness. IMO, she did not have to do that, but she did it anyway. 

I have decided that I am going to work with the project as it stands now. I have a couple of ideas floating around, so I am anxious to get back to the project. Particularly after The Hubmeister managed to make me a working copy that I can actually see the symbols. It will be my summer project after I manage to finish this current  Bin O'Shame project up. 

Well, here is where I am so far. Slowly but surely getting there! 

Designer: Nathalie Cichon of Jardin Privé

Fabric Used: 32 count Belfast linen Periwinkle Prism by Silkweaver from their Reflections line.  

Fibers Used: Access Commodities Soie d'Alger  in Noir and #3441 Light Silver Grey. Kreinik metallic thread #4 #001 HL Silver.

Stitcher's Notes: Fabric was originally listed as 32 count Belfast linen in Meditation by Picture This Plus. The fabric is actually 32 count Belfast linen Periwinkle Prism by Silkweaver from their Reflections line.  

As of Saturday, May 16, 2015:

As of Friday, May 22, 2015:

Well, I had best be off. I have a ton of work to do. I hope everyone has a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!
