Here is a picture of what I thought I would enjoy doing at Christmas. I carted the threads fabric and pattern to my parents home in Tasmania, … and back without having opened it, other than to look at how yummy it is.
Thanks Courtney Glau, Black Work Show really is a stand out Blackwork sampler. I want it up on the walls in the shop, and despite the fact that I have too much to do and not enough time to do it. I WANT IT!
This is what I actually did in my Christmas break, … when the munchkin was asleep.
The eagle eyed amongst you will notice that these are miniatures from the picture posted in our Christmas message on Facebook. These lovely designs Red Letter Ornaments from Blue Ribbon Designs can be made in the larger design which we had stitched for the shop. My fabulous stitcher, Margaret also stitched 5 of the 8 miniatures, but ran out of fabric. For those of you who missed it, here is the picture.
I did the other three. Then I fell in love with them and had to have a set for my own tree! The munchkin is also very keen on the Kreinik corder I purchased to completed the twisted cord around the outside. In the home stretch now and maybe I will be able to finish a few other stitching projects. (We stitched ours in the DMC on 32 count. My lovely Margaret may well have said rude things to me if I sent her 40 count linen to stitch on, I know I would have done if someone sent me 40 count linen.)
Also thanks to Mel from South Arm in Tasmania for reminding me to upload the palette for the Danish Flower Threads with their new colours. Hope these are all legible, if not download the chart, remember colours may differ on your screens and printers from what I actually scanned in. Here is their new palette.
