Colour of the Month plus Galaxy

Hi everyone,
The postman arrived yesterday with my Colour of the Month threads from Theresa at Homestead Needlearts in Michigan. This month’s colour is Orange or as my friend would call it Calendula (botanical name for marigolds, because she doesn’t  like orange). In the package were threads I have not seen before so it was a lovely surprise. Looking forward to trying these soon.

Here is a photo

Threads left to right, top row: Gloriana Princess Perle 090, City Needlework Silk 108, Kreinik 12 5510, Kreinik 1/16 Ribbon holographic 027L, Kreinik Japan thread #7.
Bottom row: Splendor  S1099, Shaded Very Velvet V816 and Silk Lame Braid 18, SL30.

Have stitched more of Galaxy and there is only 2 medium sized stars to complete before it is finished. Here is it as at 7 September.

Which means I now will start trying to decide the next project, this is always fun and I am spoiled for choice but it is difficult decision. Think it may be Kurdy Biggs Looking Glass, itching to see it stitched and with all the crystals and beads it is going to be a fun piece to stitch.

Bye for now, Carol
