Very kewl, stitched up last Monday's project. Managed to complete this before 10/31!
For this week, I selected French Country Pear [Dec JCS mag]; however, I am trying to figure out what type of linen will look good with Week's Dye Works - color Curry. I'm not sure what I have on hand will work. Maybe I need natural linen?? Anybody have any ideas? Better set it aside until I find something that will work.
SPECIFICS: French Country Pear materials, per JCS, are 11x9 30-ct White Swan Linen from Access Commodities w/WDW Curry [stitching over 2 threads] AND 9x8 18-count ivory linen from Wichelt w/GAST Gold Leaf [stitching over 1 thread]
For MIOM - 10/30, I'm going stitch Blackbird Designs Country Garden on 32 ct Sand Belfast linen. I've got the overdye fibers ready. This should be really fun to work on :D
Thank you for all comments & e-mails. Esp the comments on Nick's project. He is doing a wonderful job. As for questions: Yes, the face is stitched over one thread. He is 16yo. I don't remember when he bought the kit. He has been working on it for awhile - my guess is that he bought it in the Spring. I'll have to ask him tomorrow.
ANSWER per Nicholas: The kit was purchased March 7, 2006 from the sale bin at Hobby Lobby. It was marked down to $14.00. Nicholas is our 16yo son. His progress photos are posted thru this blog since March & I started a photo album for his project [link in sidebar]
