As promised here is a photo of the current linen project, The Sweetheart Tree, Lavender Fields Quadrielle complete with a hoop mark (oops). This is so delicate and the colours are very feminine. It is stitched on 28count Linen with DMC cotton threads, unfortunately these are only sold as kits but the colours Sandra has chosen are perfect.
Many of the goodies I ordered over christmas have now arrived into my postbox. These were to add to my Quaker stash. Couldn't decide which one to choose so I opted out and bought all 4. I know I'm hopeless but it was sure fun.
Here they are.
I have looked at both of these charts for a long time, so Christmas gave me a good excuse to acquire them.
The other 2 are.
Even if they are never stitched as a whole piece the individual motifs make lovely ornaments for gifts to give to family and friends.
There are some exciting new cyberclasses available or coming up in the future already in 2012. Shining Needle has a Jane Zimmmerman geometric, ANG has a Ro Pace geometric later in the year, Scarlett Thread has From Molehill to Mountain and Cyberpointers has Kimono revisited. Wow! how is that for choice. 2012 is going to be a great stitching year.
Bye for now, Carol
