La D Da & Bent Creek WIPs
Wool & Flax
La-D-Da Workshop Project
With more fiber in hand (thx to Sue D), I restarted this lovely pin safe. Now, using two strands of Elegant Eggplant belle soie silk, Crescent Colors. IMO - looks rich with two strands of silk. Originally, I started with one strand of silk & once I looked around at other stitcher projects - decided I liked 2 strands much better.
I will be adding in some of the red-pink floral motif tonight. I don't remember the name of that silk color.

Thx to Cathy (founder of the Thread Heads) for this fabulous Autumn Pattern. After consulting with Deb L., I changed some of the suggested over dye colors - I think I've got the right ones picked out.
I cannot resist an interesting alphabet - with the birds & pumpkins, this one is so charming!
