Since the summer sun is beaming it's picture time. Even as adults we all have *Firsts* in our lives don't we ~ lol! Here's a quick reveal of one of my firsts, still need to add initials/year, will frame it shortly. I feel like a kid saying this, but it's so true:) Was hoping for a faded, easy on the eye, old timey feeling with this color palette, will be a nice addition to our home.
La D Da ~ Quaker Alphabet 2007
WDW 35 ct linen ~ Straw
Floss ~ WDW Palomino, 2 over 2, approx 6 skeins
Stitch Count 110 x 138
Oh, I started a new small, take a gander at my sidebar if you like (there's a new section for WIP).
FYI ~ Did anyone notice HDF has introduced a new line of silk flosses called *Primitive Barn*, luscious red, rust, blue, green and brown, it's only a few colors but they're nice and prim ~ they're on her home page!
On another note, I'm kind of unexpectedly surprised and delighted. I picked up *Thread Heaven* which I've heard about, but always pooh-poohed it cause I didn't want an additive on my floss ~ thinking the old way is always the best way. But... I find it keeps stitches from excessive fuzzing and adds a richer appearance to the floss (at least to me), the stitches just look more pleasing with Thread Heaven. I like it (so far). I've not yet tried it on silk floss, only cotton. Anyone have any thoughts to share about Thread Heaven?
It's been swell of you to stop in, plz do come again when you can stay for cheesecake:)
