WIP Wednesday Post For April 13, 2016
This latest start is from Kit Mountain. I have had it for quite some time now. I have always wanted to stitch this one, and yet never got around to it. I wanted to stitch it this year, as it has been sitting for a very, very long time. Only when I got around to stitching it, I decided that I didn't like the fabric that I had decided to use for it. Originally, I had chosen a 28 count Raspberry Lite joblean to stitch this on, but decided that the white was simply not going to show up very well. I then decided on a green, but then the question was which one? I eventually settled on a particular piece of 28 count Cashel linen in Water Lily that was purchased at my LNS this past weekend. After I had finished up Motifs Abécédaire 30 late Saturday night, I took Sunday off to rest my hands and arms. This one was started on Monday, and I am really loving the colors on this fabric. It fresh and 'Spring like'. I do not know why I generally associate strawberries with spring, as strawberries are typically at their peak in June. Which is definitely not spring! :)
At any rate, here is the newest start:
Design: Strawberries and Cream
Designer: Casey Buonaugurio (retired)
Fabric Used: 28 count Cashel linen in Water Lily
Fibers Used: DMC Embroidery Floss Art. 117 in B5200, 225, 321, 351, 743, 815, 937, 986, 988 and 3706.
Stitcher's Notes: Began Monday, April 11, 2016. Design featured in the February 2006 issue of The Cross Stitcher, a now defunct US magazine. Design featured on page 36. Substituted called for fabric for 28 count Cashel linen in Water Lily
