And The Winner Is....

...Leaflet Silo! Woohoo! I took the night of from stitching last night to get my area cleaned up from Jardin Mythique's finish. As I was watching The Soprano's again, I went through  Kit Mountain Leaflet Silo and on with the Bin O'Shame again to see if anything was grabbing me. Nothing was, so I decided to sleep on it. 

When I woke up, I had the urge to stitch something in the shamrock manner. I have very little in the way of anything in the shamrock manner, so I thought with it being March very soon, now is a good time. I went perusing leisurely through my hoard collection and remembered I had this one. I've always loved it, but never got around to stitching it. I then remembered a specific green that I had. Once I pulled the silk thread that I wanted to use, I found the perfect fabric for it. Et voilà! A new start is born, lol!

At any rate, here is what I chose:

 Design:  St. Patricks Shamrock (freebie)

Designer: Brooke Nolan of Brooke's Books

Fabric Used: 32 count Belfast linen in Vintage Country Cream

Fibers Used: Au Ver À Soie  Soie d'Alger in #234 Vert Fin

Stitcher's Notes: Began Wednesday, February 24, 2016. Stitched one strand of floss over two fabric threads. Freebie found on Page One of the freebies pages on the Brooke's Books website. It is located towards the bottom of the page.

Time to bolt for the door. This isn't going to stitch itself after all, haha! I hope everyone is having a great week!
